BotryStop is a biological control agent developed specifically for the control of Botrytis cinerea, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and other organisms listed on the label. BotryStop is a live spore preparation of a non-pathogenic saprophytic fungus (Ulocladium oudemansii (U3 Strain)).
BotryStop acts as a biological control agent by competing for the same ecological niche as the plant pathogens. When BotryStop spores are deposited on the dead and senescent plant debris they germinate and colonize. The developed mycelium will proceed to colonize the dead tissue and additional sporulation can occur and these new spores are then available to colonize remaining debris. BotryStop aggressively occupies the same physical space and out competes the pathogens for the nutrients in the dead and senescing plant tissue; it is a true antagonist. BotryStop is non-invasive and causes no damage to live plant tissue. With this mechanism of action, it is highly unlikely that resistance to BotryStop will develop.
