Fungal pathogens are the most economically important diseases that affect fruit and vegetable crops. Although application of fungicides is far the most effective method to control these diseases, it can be involved in many problems due to health risk concerns and environmental pollution. Thus, there is a growing need to develop alternative approaches for the management of this pathogen. The use of bio-active substances such chitosan and natamcyin is alternative approaches to control fungal decay for marketable quality of post-harvest fruits and vegetables.

 

Antimix™ CN is natural powerful antifungal agent formulated by bio-active ingredients including fungal chitosan and alpha-natamycin, which can greatly prevent fungal rot in post-harvest fruits and vegetables.
