Background: Emerging apples and pears are susceptible to fire blight, a bacteria-driven disease that shrivels fruit blossoms and leaves. Northwest Agricultural Products, Pasco, Washington, developed Bloomtime E-325, a safe, native organism that helps suppress fire blight. Using a biotechnology approach, PNNL engineers helped the company set up a fermentation system to create the product. The non-chemical forumuation is approved for organic fruit production, an increasingly attractive option for farmers and regulators.
