Knowledge to sustain future generations
A resource guide for pest and disease management
Impact of pests
Insects feed on leaves and fruits, creating early decay that affects the quality and appearance of the crop. Their effects also lead to an increase in plant disease.
Impact of diseases
The fungus Botrytis begins in the berry's foliage and is imperceptible until the berries ripen and gray fuzzy mold develops.
The BVT effect
The BVT system has been specifically engineered to target pests and fungal diseases, dramatically improving crops all season long.

BVT addresses both pests and disease with its patent-pending biological control, BVT-CR7. By using the BVT system in an IPM program, the result is a healthier crop. With stronger plants come higher yields.
BVT's Clonostachys is a naturally occurring fungus that forms a mutually beneficial relationship with the plants it contacts. Once established inside a flower, Clonostachys helps to prevent the growth and development of Botrytis without harming the plant in any way.
Published papers from BVT's scientific advisory board, including Dr. John Sutton, Dr. Peter Kevan and others on bee vectoring, plan diseases and more.
