A Greener Future for Vineyards: Transforming Disease and Pest Control with The Amazing Doctor Zymes


The Amazing Doctor Zymes shares the deep respect for the environment felt by wine industry innovators practicing organic and regenerative agriculture and is committed to helping usher in natural, eco-friendly winemaking and cultivation. Established in 2015, the company’s mission is to help remedy the detrimental consequences of using harmful pesticides and fungal control treatments on crops. These chemicals often inflict lasting harm on the land, contaminate waterways, and jeopardize the well-being of people and wildlife.

The Amazing Doctor Zymes’ vision of a green agent with comprehensive benefits for soil and plant health led to its 100% all-natural, all-in-one Eliminator insecticide and fungicide product. This highly effective organic alternative is formulated for soft-bodied insects, mold, fungus, mildew, viruses and harmful bacteria causing disease in the vineyard.

The core ingredient is citric acid, derived through fermentation―the only method recognized by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for certified organic production and processing products. In addition to OMRI certification, Eliminator has an EPA FIFRA 25(b) pesticide-exempt rating, a classification for organic and environmentally safe products.

In the wine industry, the vitality of vineyards and the quality of grapes are equally critical to crafting a fine wine. Conventional chemical products, even those labeled organic, often leave oils and residues that stay on grape skins. These residues can hinder plant photosynthesis, disrupting transpiration.

Eliminator’s proprietary formula initiates a mechanical reaction that interferes with insects’ ability to breathe, acting as a potent deterrent against future infestations. It works by breaking down the protective exoskeleton of pests like mealybugs and spotted lanternflies, causing them to dehydrate and perish. Additionally, because bugs cannot build tolerance, immunity or resistance, there is no need to rotate different products.

For fungal diseases like powdery and downy mildews, black rot and molds, Eliminator digests the biomass and changes the pH to create a hostile environment that disrupts the organism’s cell walls and prevents further growth. It can also be used as a soil drench to combat fungus gnats and soil-borne pests.

Wineries embracing regenerative and organic vineyard management understand that these practices resonate positively with customers, especially the environmentally conscious younger generations. An eco-friendly product like Eliminator, which offers a non-toxic and sustainable approach to vineyard pest and disease management, can enhance marketing efforts with this demographic. Winemakers will also appreciate the added benefit of residue-free skins, which improve juice clarity and taste, ultimately resulting in superior wines.
