Lida Plant Research introduces first low-risk plant vaccine


Lida Plant Research has brought the first low-risk plant vaccine registered as a plant protection product and authorized for use in organic production on the market.

The biotechnology-based company from Valencia, Spain, is a leader in the development of new solutions and products to enhance crop yields and protection against different types of biotic and abiotic stress. Its plant protection product Fytosave has recently been authorized by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food as a low-risk plant protection product in accordance with article 47 of Regulation (CE) no. 1107/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council.

The plant vaccine Fytosave contains the active substance “COS-OGA”. So far, only 20 active substances have been authorized as low-risk active substances in Europe.

Since October 2018, the active substance “COS-OGA” has been included in Regulation (CE) no. 889/2008, with no specific restriction regarding its use in organic production.
