A new solution for powdery and downy mildew on vines?

Protecting crops remains one of the greatest challenges faced by the wine growing sector.Powdery and downy mildew are serious diseases of grapevines globally. If not adequately controlled, both pathogens can substantially reduce yield and grape and wine quality.

The Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) has now completed a study to determine whether the use of BOOSTER-Mag for vines disease has any effect on grape fermentation and wine quality.

The results clearly demonstrated that BOOSTER-Mag has no negative effect. This result is consistent with an equivalent European study – this is great news for the development of BOOSTER-Mag as a sustainable alternative to protect vines from mildew.
