Bacillus licheniformis is a bacterium commonly found in the soil and a biological fungicide based on a selected strain of naturally-occurring antagonistic bacteria bacillus subtilis contains endospores of bacillus subtilis. As a microbial fungicide, it widely used against the major diseases like Downy mildew, powdery mildew and alternaria in agriculture. It is approved for use in Organic agriculture.
Bacillus Licheniformis consists of bacillus subtilis antibiotics polysaccharides and protein that exhibits strong fungicide activity against pathogenic fungi. Technically, the mechanism of controlling pathogenic fungi is by nutrient competition and forming protective bacterial layer in a high density. It is harmless to environment and can also enhance anti-reversibility of plants, promote plant growth, increase yield of plants and improve the quality of plants.
Appearance: Grey powder
Microbial Count: 20 billion CFU/gram
Suitable for application on Cereals , Millets , Pulses, Oilseeds, Fibre Crops , Sugar Crops , Forage Crops , Plantation crops ,Vegetables, Fruits, Spices , Flowers , Medicinal crops , Aromatic Crops , Orchards and Ornamentals
>Method of application:
Mix 1-1.5 g in sufficient quantity of water to make slurry and coat the seeds with this slurry. Dry the seeds under shade and sow the seeds. The seeds can be mechanically mixed in a seed treater also. The treated seeds should not be blended along with chemical fertilizer/ chemical pesticide.
Mix 0.5 Kg / Ha with 500 Kg of organic manure/fertilizer. Incorporate this mixture at the time of sowing/planting.
Mix 1g per 1 L of water and spray. Spraying depends on the climatic conditions that favour disease occurrence and must be done prior to the onset of the disease. Spray at an interval of 7 to 10 days depending upon the crop and intensity of disease. Adding a sticking agent to the solution will aid in better adherence of the formulation to the crops and offers better disease control.
