Trichoderma viride – 1.5% WP
(2×106 CFU/gm, min.)(IIHR-TV-5 Strain Accession No. ITCC No. 6889)
Bio Fungicide And Nematicide
Trichoderma viride is a high-efficiency organic biological agent. It produces antibiotics, nutrient competition, parasitic, cell-wall degradation, enzymes, and induced plant resistance mechanisms, which have antagonism effect on a variety of plant pathogenic fungi. Protection and treatment can effectively control soil spread fungus diseases with dual effect.
Use Trichoderma viride products, which can enhance the survival rate of seedling and transplant, keep the seedlings robust growth. It can also be used to prevent grey mold.
- Increase plant growth and yield.
- Increase the systemic disease resistance of plants.
- Increase root growth and tolerance to drought.
- Increase the absorption of nutrients and the effective use of fertilizers
- Improve the light and efficiency of plants.
- Increase the rate and percentage of seed germination.
Beauveria Bassiana – 1.15% WP
(1×108/gm. min.)(BB-ICAR-RJP Strain Accession No. MCC 1022)
Beauveria bassiana is an entomopathogenic fungi that causes white muscadine disease in a range of insects including whiteflies, aphids, thrips, grasshoppers and certain types of beetles. It differs from Nosema locustae in that it does not need to be ingested by the host; B. bassiana spores simply need to come in contact with a host. Once the host insect is infected, the fungus rapidly grows inside of the insect, feeding on the nutrients present in the host’s body and producing toxins in the process. When the host dies, the B. bassiana covers the carcass in a layer of white mold that produces more infective spores.
Trichoderma Harzianum – 1% WP
(CFU 2×106/gm, min.)(IIHR-TH-2 Strain Accession No. ITCC No. 6888)
- Trichoderma harzianum is an antagonistic fungus that is capable of hyper parasitizing pathogenic fungi.
- Its importance as a biocontrol agent is because it is able to attack a large variety of phytopathogenic fungi responsible for major crop diseases, such as: Botrytis, Fusarium and Penicillium sp.,R.solani, S.rolfsii and Pythium Aphanidermatum
- T-harz produces various metabolites such as several lytic enzymes, including a β-1,3-glucanase, and antibiotics which control disease causing microbes. In addition it stimulates plant defense mechanisms
- T-harz increases the rate of plant growth and development by developing more roots which help the crops to become more resistant to drought
- T-harz has an additional benefit of being able to solubilise phosphates and micronutrients
