AgraQuest's Serenade added to FRAC list
US biopesticide company AgraQuest’s biofungicide, Serenade ( Bacillus subtilis strain QST 713), has been added to the mode of action list of CropLife International’s Fungicide Resistance Action Committee (FRAC). It is the first microbial chemistry to be included, AgraQuest points out. The biopesticide has been accorded its own subcategory of fungicides acting on lipids and membrane synthesis. It is classed as having a low resistance risk.
