China Agriculture Report By CnAgri2012-06-28 14:24:13China Agriculture Report Print The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has approved biopesticide AgriPhage-CMM from OmniLytics for bacterial stem canker in tomato caused by Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis. Bacteriophage of Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis is the active ingredient in AgriPhage-CMM, which is a mixture of lytic bacteriophage strains highly specific to the causal pathogen of bacterial stem canker in tomato.

AgriPhage-CMM can be applied for seedling treatment and hydroponic greenhouse treatment. AgriPhage-CMM is a novel pesticide and has a completely new mode of action, and offers an additional tool for managing bacterial stem canker, a destructive bacterial disease on greenhouse tomato. There are currently very few registered products for this disease. AgriPhage-CMM may be used as a component of an IPM strategy for bacterial stem canker on greenhouse tomato.

OmniLytics received US EPA’s registration for AgriPhage-CMM in November last year.
