Chlorine Dioxide Biocide

Chlorine Dioxide applied on potatoes in storage.

Chlorine Dioxide is a broad-spectrum biocide that is effective in controlling late blight and other diseases on potatoes in storage. Chlorine Dioxide’s disinfecting and oxidizing qualities allow it to suppress the growth of bacteria. With approved labeling procedures, Chlorine Dioxide can be applied on potatoes, either as they are piled into storage or with the ventilation system during the storage season.
