BioWorks Receives Patent for Biofungicide

BioWorks has been issued a U.S. patent for its RootShield PLUS+ biofungicide.

This next-generation RootShield product prevents diseases caused by soil-borne Phytophthora species and offers improved control of hot season Pythiumdiseases. RootShield PLUS+ also controls soilborne diseases caused by FusariumPythiumRhizoctoniaThielaviopsis and Cylindrocladium species.

Its two active ingredients, Trichoderma harzianum strain T-22, and Trichoderma virens strain G-41 grows on roots and in surrounding soils “shielding” them against root-damaging fungi for up to 12 weeks, while promoting healthier root systems and increasing root mass potential.

“The BioWorks team is proud to receive a U.S. patent for RootShield PLUS+,” said Joe Gionta, director of marketing and sales. “These accomplishments continue to reinforce our commitment to providing our customers with products that are safe, proven and effective.”
