Mexican academics develop fungicide for roses

University researchers in Mexico are developing a fungicide for the control of powdery mildew (Sphaerotheca pannosa) on roses. Students on the Mexican Technological University of Tecamachalco’s sustainable agriculture degree programme are developing a liquid formula product. The project seeks to maintain the integrity of plants while improving their aesthetics and providing an alternative for post-harvest control. The formula is made with sodium bicarbonate, horsetail herb and vegetable oil containing organic compounds. The research is being carried out at the University’s laboratories, and includes the application of wax in a rose growing tunnel.
