A new and safe way to eliminate bud rot (botrytis). Bud Rot Stop is a broad application leaf conditioner that conditions the leaf to ensure it's able to defend itself against fungal attack.

Bud Rot Stop contains a strain of naturally occurring bacteria that grows for a short time (requires a minimum of 4 hours growth) on the leaf of the plant. During this growth, the bacteria produces secondary metabolites that work on one level by forming a physical barrier on the leaf surfaces to prevent attachment of the pathogens to plant cell tissues. On a second level, the lipopeptides form mixed micelles on plant surfaces that perforate the membranes of fungal cells and spores to prevent growth, suppressing the reproduction of the botrytis spores. This prior innoculation with beneficial bacteria will encourage systemic-acquired resistance (SAR) within the plant to increase plant health.
