Bionetix Organic Plus RH

Solving East Hokkaido's high rate of potato scab infection


A case study of the elimination of potato scab in the East Hokkaido region with the help of Bionetix Organic Plus RH.

The East Hokkaido region is known to have the highest volume of potato product in Japan.  Unfortunately, a potato farmer in the area was experiencing a high rate of potato scab infection in his agricultural field.  Prior to the 2019 season, this infection rate had reached approximately 85% in two fields that measured about 65 hectares (160.6 acres) in total.


Approximately 35 hectares (86 acres) section of these fields were set apart as Test Area no.1 to evaluate the efficacy of Organic Plus RH during the 2019 growing season.  The product was diluted in water and sprayed on the soil during sowing time in the spring.


After treatment with Organic Plus RH, potato scab was eliminated in Test Area No. 1.  It is believed that this is a result of the synergistic action of the rhamnolipids and other naturally derived ingredients in Organics Plus RH that helped to control potato scab through natural mechanism.
