Development and Commercialization of Fungicides and Bactericides for Horticultural Crops/Improving and Integrating Disease Management for Pulse Crops

  1. 1. Development and Commercialization of Fungicides and Bactericides for Horticultural Crops Improving and Integrating Disease Management for Pulse Crops Damian A. Sowa, M.Sc. Commercial Director
  2. 2. The ProblemLack of Effective & Available Bactericides Grower identified need Bacterial diseases are rampant in pulse & horticultural crops  Bacterial bean blight, tomato canker, etc  Very few available solutions Streptomycin to be removed from market Copper products ineffective Resistance forming in fungi & bacteria
  3. 3. Innovotech’s ProposalAgressTM All-in-one bactericide & fungicide for horticultural crops  Reduce spray times & amounts  Integrated solution Pulse crop pest management integration  Genetics, seed treatment & spray  Spray same as seed treatment  Multiple targets for bacteria & fungi
  4. 4. The Green BulletTM Activated silver compound Broad spectrum bacteria & fungi control Low-resistance formation potential Inexpensive Environmentally friendly  Potential organic pesticide  Very low use rates  Decomposition products naturally occurring  Safe to crops up to 100x use rate
  5. 5. Development of Agress™ Support from pulse grower groups (AB, Sask, Canada) Support from AAFC, AARD Trials being conducted across Canada by partners  University, AAFC, AARD, private growers
  6. 6. Bean Blight Seed TreatmentNaturally infested bean seed.Untreated (left) Agress™ treated (right).Brown discoloration and wilt due to bacterial blight disease
  7. 7. Bean Blight Seed Treatment Naturally infested bean seed. Agress™ treated (left), AGRESS Untreated untreated (right) Reduced emergence due to bacterial blight disease
  8. 8. Bean Blight Foliar Spray 60 % Disease Incidence 40 20 0 Water Kocide Parasol Agress Bean plants inoculated with foliar bean blight Agress™ treated (top), untreated (bottom)
  9. 9. Integrated Pest Management Test blight-resistant seeds, seed treatments & blight-control sprays Use control test groups, different seed treatments & spraysGM – ST – Spray Susc – ST – SprayGM – ST Susc – STGM – Spray Susc – SprayGM Susc
  10. 10. Tomato Bacterial DiseasesTomatoCanker Agress is an effective post-infection treatment of tomato canker, bacterial spot, and bacterial speck.Untreated Water Parasol Agress Tomato Spot Water Agress
  11. 11. Tomato Botrytis Disease Severity3210 Water Lance Agress Agress is an effective post- infection treatment of botrytis on tomato Agress treated (top) untreated (bottom)
  12. 12. Tomato Seed Treatment100 80 60 Agress eradicated 100% of diseases 40 found on naturally infested tomato 20 seeds compared to water. 0 Fungi Bacteria Water Agress (0.1%) Silver P (0.1%) Parasol WP
  13. 13. 2010 Research Targets Potato seed treatment & foliar spray  Late blight, fusarium dry rot, silver scurf Grape foliar spray  Botrytis Brocolli  Downy mildew, alternaria Pulses  Ascochyta, White mold
  14. 14. Conclusion AgressTM occupies a unique, broad role in agriculture industry Will be brought before PMRA/EPA in late 2010 Need to maximize reach of product
