How it works
Romeo is proven to be effective on a
range of foliar fungal diseases, it contains the active ingredient Cerevisane,
a purified extract of the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae Strain LAS117. This
active ingredient induces internal preventative plant defence mechanisms
against key foliar fungal diseases on a range of crops with no direct effect on
It does this by actively mimicking a
microbial attack activating a signalling cascade, which then stimulates the
production of phytoalexins strengthening the cell wall and leaf cuticle.
Romeo acts preventatively, by
preparing the plant to defend itself against a fungal attack, so it must be
applied before the risk of disease appearance, with application every 7-10
The first application may be made at
BBCH12 (two true leaf stage with leaves unfolded) to BBCH 89 (beginning of
fruit abscission stage) and is effective after 1 day. The product can be used
in organic systems and it leaves no chemical residues.
