In organic apple-growing control agents are necessary to prevent the blossoms being infected by
the fire blight pathogen Erwinia amylovora. Detached apple blossoms were used as an experimental
model to develop preparations based on yeast isolates for use in the control of fire blight. Several
yeast isolates reduced disease incidence in apple blossoms. The efficiency of yeast isolates
was increased by developing a suitable formulation. This yeast preparation exhibited high efficiency
in the control of fire blight in field-trials and will be marketed under the tradename "Blossom-
