Spain grants emergency biopesticide use on pome fruit

Spain has granted emergency use approval for biopesticides based on two strains of the fungus, Aerobasidium pullulans, the regional farmers union of Aragon, UAGA, reports. The Ministry of Agriculture has granted a three-month approval for 25% bactericide formulations of A pullaluns strains DSM 14940 and DESM 14941 at application rates of 1.5 kg/ha for 2 m high trees. The bactericides are for the control of fireblight (Erwinia amylovora) in pome fruit orchards during flowering. A maximum of five applications are approved. The authorisations run from February 17th to May 15th. The products have been granted emergency approval following requests from several autonomous Spanish regions, including Aragon, due to the absence of alternative controls.
