KAFOM is a systemic product based on potassium phosphite. The synergic action between phosphite and potassium stimulates the plant self-defence mechanism.
Phosphite provides good prophylactic action, as it stimulates the phyoalexin synthesis inside the plant, creating strong resistance to certain Oomycete fungi, such as Phytophthora spp, grapevine mildew, etc. Potassium content in the product is also favourable to lignification processes, maintaining the fruit peel firm and resistant.
