We know that for mushroom farmers, crops blighted by dry bubble disease can spell disaster – which is why we developed Zivion® M – a bio-protective agent that can maximize your yields.

Zivion® M is new and unique in the marketplace. It’s easy to use (applied directly to mushroom beds both before and in between picks) and doesn’t require any special equipment or re-engineering of current farming processes and it is OMRI listed.

It all adds up to good news for farm owners, workers…and consumers.

It couldn’t be simpler. Farmers simply apply Zivion® M on the mushroom beds both before and between picks.

Zivion® M is based on an all-natural, bio-based compound, proven to protect people and products from harmful microorganisms, and especially mold and fungal growth.

Our customers have been using the key ingredient - natamycin - successfully in the food industry for 45 years across 155 countries. All of which makes Zivion® M the ideal solution for all types of mushroom growers.
