Biological control to be used in potatoes, garlic

Sylvar Technologies Inc. is introducing a new biological control to manage common scab in potatoes and basal root rot in garlic.  


AMYPROTEC 42 is a Bacillus amyloliquefaciens soil-based fungicidal product. AMYPROTEC 42 develops a zone of root health around the emerging plant protecting it from pathogens such as common scab or basal rot. This zone is referred to as the “rhizosphere” and is the area into which new roots are actively growing.


Laura Forbes, product manager for Sylvar Technologies states: “I have been working with AMYPROTEC for three years in trials and have been impressed with the consistency in performance, especially during stressed periods of plant growth.” 


AMYPROTEC 42 is a liquid formulation, compatible with most common fertilizers and fungicides to provide for convenient application through the plant growth period. 


Sylvar Technologies Inc. is a member of Andermatt BioControl, a leading global developer of biological solutions for growers. Based in New Brunswick, Sylvar is actively developing biological products for insect and disease control in agriculture and forestry markets.
