Ibisco® is an innovative elicitor of crop defences, based on COS-OGA, efficient against powdery mildew. COS-OGA is the first "low-risk active substance" adopted at European level and consists of a patented complex of natural oligosaccharides. It acts preventively as elicitor, activating the natural defences of the plant and making it capable of countering fungal attacks. Ibisco® in Italy represents a sustainable solution to fight powdery mildew on Cucurbits and Solanaceae under greenhouse, and as of 2018 also on grape.

Thanks to the various defence processes involved, Ibisco® is not subject to the risk of developing pathogen resistance. The absence of (eco-)toxicity (not classified) and residue (no MRL, PHI or delay of re-entry) makes it a perfect fit for modern Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Ibisco® shows good control of powdery mildew in various conditions and excellent selectivity on crops.
