Pseudomonas syringae pv actinidiae (Psa) is a plant bacterial diease that aggressively attaches kiwifruit, resulting in crop loss and vine. To date, control options for Psa are limited. A new formulation has shown good efficacy in mitigating the symptoms of Psa in experimental treatments. The active components of the formulation are food-grade GRAS products and therefore pose no issue to phytotoxicity, residues and human health. In addition, they are very unlikely to show any impact on bee health and therefore provide a unique solution for Psa managment over the critical flowering time.
