Abstract: Postharvest diseases caused by fungi provoke major losses in pome fruit productionevery year. To replace (partly or completely) the chemical treatments that are used to fightpostharvest diseases or to support their effect by an additional application the efficiency of BoniProtect was tested in field trials since 2002. Replacing fungicide treatments before harvest intrials from 2002 to 2010, Boni Protect showed comparable efficiencies of maximum 89%.Adding up to two Boni Protect applications to standard fungicide treatments an additionalreduction of infected fruits of maximum 4% could be obtained.
