Potato Production Solutions
Crop quality and food safety starts in the field. BioSafe Systems manufactures (sustainable, green, balanced, natural) products for field use to control pathogens, insects, and weeds that negatively impact the quality of potato crops.
OxiDate® can be applied to crops throughout the growing season. The activated peroxygen chemistry will immediately reduce fungal and bacterial pathogens on crops, resulting in better yields and reduced food safety risks. In studies, OxiDate 2.0 has been found to be effective against Late Blight on potato.
AzaGuard® is a 3% Azadirachtin concentrate that offers broad spectrum insecticidal control and prevention over 300 species. AzaGuard’s primary mode of action is an Insect Growth Regulator that prevents molting between larval, pupal, and nymphal stages and also repels insects in treated areas. AzaGuard has been found to control Potato Virus Y (PVY) carrying aphids.
SaniDate® 12.0 - SaniDate 12.0 is a high-strength, 12 % peracetic acid-based alternative to chlorine treatments in irrigation water for potato production. SaniDate 12.0 can be used to control water-borne pathogens and prevent the spread of disease among potatoes in the field.
