Challenging the defiance of Botrytis

EcoSwing®: new biosolution to produce table grapes with a lower chemical load

A common problem

The viticulture sector finds itself at a great crossroads. On one side, damage caused by the Botrytis cinerea is so extensive that it has become the main problem faced by cultivators in various countries. On the other side, the Maximum Residue Limits (MRL) that the market wants are continuously lower and more demanding. Also, the options of chemical molecules are limited due to the ability of the fungus to adapt to different conditions.

Now available in Chile

Ecoswing was given authorization by the Agricultural and Livestock Service in February 2019 and has solved this problem by offering greater control of the fungus. In laboratory and field tests, Ecoswing proved to be effective in preventing the onset of diseases such as powdery mildew, gray mold (Botrytis cinerea) and acid rot, among other fungal diseases.

In previous studies in France where Ecoswing’s preventive and curative properties were tested on grapes inoculated with Botrytis, it was observed that plant defenses are stimulated with the application of Ecoswing, with healing of the tissue occurring in the pathogen’s inoculation area by accumulation of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and callus in the external tissues.

Why choose Ecoswing?

In addition to its preventive and curative effect, Ecoswing is a natural product made from Swinglea glutinosa extract that is harmless and does not generate traces of any substance that may be of concern from a toxicological perspective. This makes it a very effective and ideal tool to include in comprehensive crop protection plans, even at postharvest stages.

In summary, the main advantages of Ecoswing are:

  • Safety
  • Non-toxic mechanisms of action
  • Prevents resistance problems
  • Low toxicological category
  • Selectivity
  • Reduction of the chemical load
  • Agroecological restoration: soil microbiology, biological controllers, natural pollinating enemies.
