Scientists believe that nettle's potential for activating the immune system of plants deserves attention for the biopesticide industry A team of Spanish researchers tested and compared the effectiveness of a number of natural formulations with biofungicidal properties to protect beans from halo-late blight, publishing the results in the journal Agronomy 2022 on the MDPI portal. Plant diseases caused by bacterial pathogens are causing serious crop losses worldwide. In the case of common beans, halo-late blight is caused by the biotrophic gamma-proteobacteria Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola (Pph). The disease leads to yield losses of up to 45%, the main symptoms are general chlorosis of the leaves, growth retardation, and impaired growth. The fight against halo-late blight usually consists of planting healthy seeds every season or using varieties with increased genetic resistance. The latter method is not suitable if the susceptible variety is gastronomic and economic interest.
