Baking soda is recognized as a biopesticide since it is easily degradable and leaves no traces in the environment.

It is  effective against parasitic fungi  that develop on the surface of leaves and stems, such as powdery mildew, also known as powdery mildew, apple and pear scab, flower moniliosis and gray rot.

However, it is not as effective  against fungi  that live inside the leaves, such as downy mildew, anthracnose, and septoria, but it can still help prevent them from developing.

To use it, it is advisable to dilute it (0.5 to 1% baking soda powder per liter of water with a tablespoon of black soap) as soon as the first symptoms are noticed and repeat the treatment once a  week  . It is important to carefully read the product label and follow the dosages and precautions for use.

Simply sprinkle a large amount of baking soda on the affected area to  prevent plant death. To obtain  healthy and strong plants  , prevention is the best strategy, so carrying out treatments with  baking soda in the first days of March  represents an advantageous and sustainable solution to be preferred to other treatments.
