Used by many of the largest conventional, sustainable and organic growers in the world, SERENADE® consistently helps growers win the battle against fungal and bacterial diseases. SERENADE contains a unique, patented strain of Bacillus subtilis (strain QST 713) which provides over 30 different lipopeptides that work synergistically to destroy disease pathogens and provide superior antimicrobial activity. It protects vegetables, fruit, nut and vine crops against diseases such as Fire Blight, Botrytis, Sour Rot, Rust, Sclerotinia, Powdery Mildew, Bacterial Spot and White Mold. Quality controlled formulation and state of the art manufacturing adds to the consistent performance that SERENADE provides.
SERENADE is unique because it contains the only Bacillus subtilis strain (QST 713) that has three groups of lipopeptides working together to destroy disease-causing pathogens. It stops harmful spores from germinating, it disrupts the germ tubes and mycelial growth and it inhibits attachment of the plant pathogen to the leaf by producing a zone of inhibition which restricts the growth of the disease. This novel, and multiple site, mode of action not only creates an effective fungicide, but also makes it very difficult for diseases to develop resistance. SERENADE is therefore an important tool for growers in areas where resistance to conventional products has developed, and it will help to prevent the development of resistant pathogens when it is rotated in a control program with other registered fungicides.
