Prestop contains mycelia and spores of Gliocladium catenulatum Strain J1446, a naturally occuring soil fungus, which is capable of providing a number of very useful disease control benefits to a wide range of cropping situations.

These include action as a hyperparasite, production of enzymes which cause the breakdown of plant pathogen cell walls and deprivation of pathogenic fungi – regarding living space and nourishment – by colonizing the surface of roots and aerial parts of the plants.

These functions are supported by indirect effects where stimulation of the plants’ own natural defence systems takes place.

To ensure best control of diseases apply PRESTOP in a protectant programme of treatments before infection occurs.

Features & Benefits

Features & Benefits

PRESTOP can give effective control of a wide variety of plant pathogens:

  • Grey mould and stem cankers caused by Botrytis cinerea on leafy crops, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, aromatic plants, ornamentals and strawberries.
  • Gummy stem blight caused by Didymella sp. on cucumbers.
  • Damping-off and root or base rot diseases caused by Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Phytophthora and Fusarium spp. on vegetables, salads, aromatic plants and ornamentals.

Mode of action
The fungus Gliocladium catenulatum Strain J1446:-

  • acts as a hyperparasite and produces enzymes, which cause the breakdown of cell walls of plant pathogens.
  • deprives pathogenic fungi of living space and nourishment by colonizing the surface of roots and aerial parts of the plants.

Additional benefit against other diseases such as Plasmodiophora brassicae (clubroot) in brassica crops, sclerotinia, thielaviopsis, helminthosporium, verticillium, penecillium and alternaria species can also be expected.

Compatibility Prestop is safe to humans, the environment and beneficial organisms when used as directed.

It is compatible with many chemical pesticides and can be used in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programmes.
