New bacterial product from MASE saves pea harvest

The Microbial Activity for a Sound Environment (MASE) research programme has developed a bacterial product that saves the pea harvest from pea blight, a severe fungal disease in pea cultivation. Now the Swedish Chemicals Agency has registered and approved this bacterial product, which has been named Cedress. The first customer, Findus, is putting away its chemicals and will probably, as early as this autumn, start treating pea seeds with Cedress.
