Unlocking potential of organic compounds

Unlocking potential of organic compounds

Project Group: Pan sector

Status: In Progress

Timeline: Mar, 2024 - Apr, 2025

Last Updated: 04/04/2024

This project involves the screening of some organic compounds as potential controls for bacterial pathogens. It is an extension of initial work by Zespri which identified some naturally derived bioactives that inhibit the kiwifruit disease PSA.

Work is now underway to identify if there are organic compounds with similar functional groups which could be useful in the control of other bacterial pathogens important in other sectors of New Zealand horticulture.
