Rot Stop is a broad application leaf conditioner that conditions the leaf to ensure it is able to defend itself against fungal attack.
Rot Stop contains a strain of naturally occuring bacteria that grows for a short period on the leaf of the plant. During this growth the bacteria produce 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 lippopeptides form mixed mecelles on the plant surfaces that perforate the membranes of fungal cells and spores to prevent growth, supressing the reproduction of the botrytis spores.
This proir inoculation with beneficial bacteria will encourage systemic aquired resistance (SAR) within the plant to increase plant health.
