Serenade EU approval extended to bactericide use

The existing EU approval for Bayer CropScience’s biofungicide, Bacillus subtilis strain QST 713, now includes additional use as a bactericide against fireblight (Erwinia amylovora). The change, which came into force in August, represents a correction to the active ingredient’s approval. Uses as a fungicide and bactericide were assessed as part of the original approval, but the authorisation erroneously omitted bactericide use. The product is sold as Serenade for use on grapevines, fruit and vegetables.
