Disinfectant Fungicide Tests

Research Brief Ultradyne Disinfectant Fungicide Registered In Mexico For Disinfecting Potable Drinking Water For Human, Poultry And Livestock Use, As Well As A Final Rinse For The Preservation And Protection Of Fruits And Vegetables Prior To Consumption, Storage And/Or Transportation. ( DOT CLASS: NON HAZARDOUS ) This study was made possible thanks to the assistance of the Government of Canada through The Canadian International Development Agency (C.I.D.A.) for Laboratoires Ultrateck Laboratories Inc. Division. UltraDyne series of products are based on natural food grade nutritional organic source ingredients. (patent pending)

Ultradyne-C Food Preservation Experiments

In order to reduce the serious losses which constantly occur during the storage and transport of fruits and vegetables, due to the growth of mould and fungi, Ultrateck SA de CV from our Mexican Division developed methods of applying UltraDyne to fruits and vegetables to study its effects.

Please Note: The ingredients in both of our new UltraDyne A and C are classed as food and feed grade, complexed with organic plant extracts of natural origin combined with citric acid to provide a high level of free soluble active iodine, that is safe and effective, virtually non staining, based on a patent pending process.

A final rinse water solution was prepared using UltraDyne-C at rates ranging from 1/2 to 1 part UltraDyne to 1000 parts water. These solutions were applied in the final rinse water prior to packaging to various fruits and vegetables as a disinfectant to prevent spoilage and prolong shelf-life.

The various tests showed that the treated fruits and vegetables greatly retarded the growth of mould and fungi responsible for fruit and vegetable spoilage. There was no damage or impairing in the appearance or flavor of the treated foods, even when high doses of up to 6 parts UltraDyne-C with 1000 parts water were used.

Tests conducted for possible residues clearly showed no toxic residues related to UltraDyne's ingredients, on / or in the fruits and vegetables tested.

It should be noted that chlorine products have shown to be non effective in these applications due to their inability to function in high organic soil loads, not to mention their suspected toxicity and environmental effects.

UltraDyne-C Food Preservation Experiments

Fruit And Vegetable Rinsing Prior To Packaging

The most striking results were seen in the control of mould growth on grapes. It was analyzed that the spoilage of thegrapes was caused by Botrytis infection. Bunches of grapes were treated withUltraDyne-C using a solution containing 3/4 part UltraDyne with 1,000 parts water at pH 6.0. The so treated grapes remained free from mould and spoilage for three (3) to four (4) times longer than those rinsed with water.

The same effect was observed with tomatoes, oranges and lemons that were treated in the same manner. The rotting of plums and peaches was substantially reduced on treated samples even when the rinse solution was reduced to less than 1/2 part UltraDyne-C with 1,000 parts water solution.

Melon and Passion Fruit: When treated with a final rinse solution containing 3/4 parts UltraDyne to 1,000 parts water at pH 6.0, suffered no damage during storage, while the same varieties treated with water and/or chlorine solutions became very visibly mouldy and unappealing during the same period.

Carrots and Potatoes: It was very clear and evident from the visible effect and in the case of the treated potatoes - odors were virtually eliminated and rotting was prevented by more than three (3) times that of the untreated samples.

UltraDyne-C Soil Disinfection Experiments

UltraDyne-C is definitely fungicidal in its organic complexed form. For example UltraDyne-C when applied at a rate equal to 10 to 15 liters per/ha with 200 liters of water, at a ph of 5.5 was found to be a very effective soil disinfectant.

When the above solution and solutions of up to 20 liters per/ha were applied five to ten days prior to seeding, the effects are very visible. There is far more emergence of seedlings in the treated soil. The growth is was much more vigorous than either the formaldehyde or autoclaved controls.

After analysis nematodes were virtually completely eradicated from theUltraDyne-C treated plots.

 Ultradyne-C Crop Application Experiments

A) Banana Trees: It was observed that when banana trees and the surrounding soil area was treated with a solution ofUltraDyne-C containing 3/4 parts UltraDyne-C to 1,000 parts water solution at ph 5.5, that it inhibited the growth ofFusarium oxysporum cubense and prevented its devastating effects. The above solution has also shown the ability toinactivate tobacco mosaic virus.

B) Grapes: UltraDyne-C has shown very positive effects against thefungus Oidium,commonly associated with grape vines, and also improves the yield and quality of the wine so treated when effected by this fungus.

C) Flowers: UltraDyne-C in dilute solutions of 3 to 9 parts UltraDyne-C with 1,000 parts water is effective against nematode infestations of tubers and bulbs. It will kill eelworms in bulbs and fusarium bulb rot without harm to the subsequent growth of the bulb. The above observation was conducted on the cultivation of daffodils, and these effects have been reported on numerous others.

D) Potato:Direct application to potato tuber seeds ofUltradyne Seed Seal (A special powdered organic iodine complex, combined with natural clays) has been observed to be most effective in the control of blight. It appears to have a systemic effect which protects the plant throughout the growing cycle from blight and other disease. UltraDyne-C (Liquid) is also of considerable value when used as a soil disinfectant for the control of nematodes at 12 to 20 liters per/ha.. Ultradyne-C has clearly demonstrated to be one the most effective tool and cutting knife disinfectants for the control of fungi and bacteria.

E) In Tomatoes: the fungus Colletotrichum Tobificum, which causes a root disease can be killed by spray or immersion in a solution of 6 parts UltraDyne-C with 1,000 parts water. It has also been observed to reduce white mite populations in greenhouses, by a non killing mechanism which has not been evaluated.

f) UltraDyne-C has been reported to be effective againstCrown gall on Almond trees by spraying the gall with a solution of UltraDyne-C at a rate of 9 parts with 1,000 parts water.

g) Orange and Citrus: are subjected to attack by afungus known as diplodia natalensis responsible for wastage. It can be controlled with solutions of UltraDyne 6 to 9 parts with 1,000 parts water rates.

h) Carrots: It has been observed to be effectiveagainst pythium and other fungi when sprayed at use rates 6 parts with 1,000 parts water. There are also marked increases in quality and yield, which appears to be related to the reductions in stresses caused by fungal attack.

Ultradyne-C Sanitizing Irrigation Water

With the ever increasing pathogenic bacterial contamination (Disease causing organisms) of agricultural irrigation water sources, safe, economical and effective disinfectants and sanitizers must be used.

It has been estimated that in many parts of the Latin America's as much as twenty (20%) of the potential export markets for fruits and vegetables, are lost due to bacterial and fungi contamination. The main concern of potential importing countries and their respective health authorities, is the high and unacceptable amounts of bacteria, fungi, pesticide and chemical residuals on produce, which can lead to the transmission of disease and numerous other health hazards.

From the field studies that were conducted, it was found that the bacterial and fungal contamination was caused in part by the irrigation water being used to water these crops. From the tests taken on the various local sources, it was found that in 17 of twenty (20 ) samples the water was reported to be unfit for animal or human consumption.

It should also be noted that four (6) of the water samples taken, were treated with elaborate chlorination systems and yet the test results were still classed as unfit for animal or human consumption and this same water was being applied to the various crops, as there was no alternative source.

It was decided to conduct a test on one site, using a separate water line, with Ultradyne-C at a rate of 1 part UltraDyne-C with 10,000 parts water injected with a chematic precision pump, which treated an area of slightly less than 12 ha with a cabbage crop.

The installation was done at the pump house and the line was first disinfected using the above solution, prior to commencing treatment at normal use rates. The natural ph of the water was analyzed to be 6.1.

During the entire growing season it was observed and clearly visible that the treated site was much greener and fuller in the seeded space lines. The analysis conducted during and at harvest clearly demonstrated the effect, as the tests reported significant reductions in fungi and bacteria counts compared to the untreated checks.

The treated plot meet and surpassed all standards and limits on bacteria and fungal residues and even surpassed the most critical European standards.

One of the most interesting observations was the unexpected and significant yield increase of over 20% at harvest. It must also be noted that the visible quality of the produce was much improved when compared to the untreated checks. The yield increase was not totally unexpected as it appears to be due to the reduction in the stress caused by bacterial and fungal attack which was significantly reduced.

There were numerous other experiments conducted with apples, cabbage, carrots, cucumbers and citric fruits. In all cases the results were very positive. From these observations we may note that the treatment with Ultradyne-C provides an economical method of safe food production with potential new export markets. Furthermore with the increased yields that this method should provide for reasons already mentioned, it could result in higher profits for producers.

From the observations of the effects of these treatments, it would indicate an effective and economical method of treating infected irrigation water. This method could provide safer produce and would reduce the possibility of the associated health hazards, in the transmission of disease to consumers.
