ASPERELLO™ T34 Biocontrol® wins Silver Award at Salon du Végétal

The breakthrough new biofungicide ASPERELLO™ T34 Biocontrol® won a prestigious Silver Innovation Award within the production horticulture category at the international Salon du Végétal trade fair, in Nantes, France. Biobest and Biocontrol Technologies, producer of ASPERELLO™ T34 Biocontrol®, work together closely to offer this innovative product to growers.

With multiple modes of action, this breakthrough new biofungicide colonises plant roots to form a protective barrier against pathogens to support healthy root growth.
Triggering plants’ natural defense mechanisms, while parasitising and actively killing pathogens, ASPERELLO™ T34 Biocontrol® offers outstanding biological protection against root diseases such as Pythium and Fusarium.
Receiving the Award at the presentation ceremony, Yann Jacques of Biobest said; “We are delighted to receive this confirming the growing interest in biological solutions for the ornamentals market. Soil borne diseases remain a key challenge in many ornamental crops. ASPERELLO™ T34 Biocontrol® is a tailor made solution for growers. Conveniently, it can be incorporated in the substrate, drenched on to seedlings or applied by spraying or via irrigation.”

The Salon du Vegetal judging committee − made up of leading researchers, growers, suppliers and journalists − included ASPERELLO™ T34 Biocontrol® as well as Biobest’s Sphaerophoria-System (for improving aphid control) in the shortlist of seven products in the production innovations category.

With over 600 exhibitors, Salon du Végétal - covering ornamental production, distribution, landscaping and floristry - relocated this year from Angers to the impressive Convention Centre in Nantes.  

A registered plant protection product, growers must ensure ASPERELLO™ T34 Biocontrol® is registered in their country before use.

In the United States, ASPERELLO™ T34 Biocontrol® is registered for the use in greenhouse ornamentals against Fusarium, Pythium, Phytophthora and Rhizoctonia. In France, it is registered for the entire ornamental sector (under protection) against Fusarium and for Pythium control in tomato, sweet peppers and eggplants; in Belgium, for annual ornamentals against Fusarium and against Pythium in those vegetables. In the Netherlands, the product is officially registered only against Fusarium in carnations and against Pythium in key vegetables.
