  • Regulations

Fungal pathogens are the most economically important diseases that affect fruit 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.

Antimix™ CN is a natural powerful antifungal blend formulated by bio-active ingredients including fungal chitosan and Natamycin, which can greatly reduce disease caused by fungal pathogens in post-harvest fruits.

 

Description
