TSU biologists have tested how to protect plants from fungal diseases
Alina Kovaleva, a master’s student at the TSU Biological Institute, is engaged in developing environmental methods of plant protection and searching for new growth stimulants. In studies conducted on various plant cultures using a drug based on a fir-tree juice, its ability to suppress fungal diseases was first shown.
- Green technologies are a priority in plant protection. As practice shows, such tools can be not only no less effective than chemical analogs, but sometimes even surpass them in terms of the strength of action, - explains Alina Kovaleva. - In my studies at the Department of Agricultural Biology, we tested a drug of the Tomsk company Solagift made based on fir-tree juice.
