Our BioSave 10LP is listed on Canada’s Pest Management Centre Progress Status Report for Biopesticide Projects and Submissions for Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes.
Biological control is defined as the use of natural organisms to reduce the effects of pests and diseases. The Jet Harvest Solutions line of biological disease inhibitors are based on the company’s microbial technology which uses live organisms that, through natural growth, inhibits the ability of a target disease to proliferate.
Our Bio-Save product has had proven results in post harvest biological fungicide for decay control since 1996.
Bio-Save® is an EPA registered post-harvest biological decay control agent. Biological control is
defined as the use of natural organisms to reduce the effects of pests and disease.
Bio-Save® is a freeze-dried formulation of bacterium, which allows for easy storage. For your
convenience, Bio-Save® is packaged in easy-to-handle foil pouches. The main ingredient of Bio-Save® is the formulated bacterium, pseudomonas syringae.
What is Pseudomonas Syringae?
Pseudomonas Syringae is a vegetative microorganism. This bacterium allows for fast growth and works under competitive inhibition.
Pseudomonas Syringae (formulated as Bio-Save®) enters the wound where the mold spores (disease) is located and (at storage temperatures) will last in the wounds throughout the storage period. Once in the wound the pseudomonas bacterium (Bio-Save®) cannot be killed by surface sanitizers.
Bio-Save® is labeled for post-harvest applications for the control and prevention of several
fruit and vegetable diseases. Treatment can be used alone or in subsequent treatment with
other surface sanitizers to synergistically increase effectiveness of both compounds.
However, never directly mix Bio-Save® with other sanitizers.
