General description

γ-caprolactone (GCL) is well-known as a food flavor and is a biostimulant molecule promoting the growth of bacteria with biocontrol activity against soft-rot pathogens. GCL treatment stimulates growth of the native quorum sensing-degrading bacterial community in an industrial plant hydroponic system for culturing Solanum tuberosum.
