Metcalf® is a developer and producer of effective biological control microbes that suppress crop disease. Our products provide a clean-green and reliable alternative for managing crop diseases based on solid scientific evaluation.
Microbes naturally have a food-chain in any environment, and there are plenty of beneficial microbes that are able to attack the fungi that cause disease in crops. Beneficial microbes are found at low levels in most soils and on crop foliage, they are already playing a role to suppress crop disease.
