“Effective and biologically-based products are very attractive to fruit and vegetable growers, because they are always looking for new solutions that work and address their sensitivity to conventional pesticide usage.

Cinnerate, consists of an innovative formulation that enables to obtain high efficacies even at low concentrations. It has a high content in essential oils, having characterized different phenolic and monoterpenic compounds such as cinnamic aldehyde and eugenol as main components. It shows an eradicative effect against many fungal pathogens such as powdery mildews, rusts and others. Cinnerate disrupts the functioning of cell membranes as well as inhibits the growth, attachment and penetration of the pathogenic spores to the plant tissue.
We feel Cinnerate offers a new tool for both organic and conventional growers to control of powdery mildew, with a key advantage of not having a restriction on sulfur use before or after the products use.
