Biofungicides for Sustainable Agriculture
Success Story 051
Fungal infestation of crop plants is a twofold problem in agriculture: (1) economically, because harvest losses and high costs of pesticides for fungus control occur, and (2) ecologically, because the chemicals used pollute the environment. During the international cooperation project, a biofungicide was developed from phytochemicals extracted from the African lily. It's the first fungicide suitable for organic farming.
