Biological Fungicides

Astha Trichocare

Trichoderma viride

High Potency Biofungicide Trichoderma viride, 2×108 cfu/gm Astha trichocare is a high cfu, high potency biofungicide that works against wilts and rots diseases. Each spore of Astha trichocare is capable of forming a colony that coils fungal pathogens and parasitizes them completely. Apart from effective disease control, Astha trichocare decomposes raw organic farm wastes, solubilizes soil phosphorus, reclaims adverse soils, promotes plant growth and protects soil eco-system. Astha trichocare is water soluble, low dose, high efficacy product. Upon spraying, it leaves no stain on leaves and controls some foliar diseases also.

SPECIALTY

Water soluble, Low dose, High field efficacy and No staining on prayed leaf surfaces

TARGET

Seed and Soil borne fungal diseases and some foliar pathogens on all crops.

SEED APPLICATION

10 gm/kg seeds. Water (ml)/kg seeds is to be fixed by the users. Seed treatment with Astha trichocare protects crops effectively against wilts and rots.

SOIL APPLICATION

1kg/acre along with drip/flood irrigation or organic substances/manures. Some crops require spray applications.

Astha trichocare is compatible with all Sulphurs and can be even tank-mixed. Do not use Astha trichocare with other chemical fungicides except Sulphur.

Astha Sudo

Pseudomonas fluorescens

BIOFUNGICIDE-BIONEMATICIDE-PGPR

Astha sudo is a Pseudomonas fluorescens based biofungicide cum bionematicide having Plant Growth Promoting activity also. It is available in suspoemulsion formulation. Astha sudo acts on the hyphae of plant pathogens by enzymatic and antagonistic actions. It consistently works as the nematode control agent also.

SALIENT FEATURES

Astha sudo is useful for all field, fruit, vegetable, plantation, forest, ornamental, green house, landscape, turf and many other agricultural crops. Preventing root invasion caused by soil nematodes thereby not giving access to soil pathogenic fungi to enter the plant root systems. Thus apart from direct control of fungal pathogens, it helps controlling root invading nematodes also. This phenomenon is much useful in integrated disease management. Since it has the PGR effects, it helps in seed germination, plant growth and early flowering and fruiting of the crops. It is an excellent product to control Bacterial Leaf Blight of Paddy.

FIELD DOSAGE

250-500 gm/acre, applied as soil drench and/or spray depending upon the target.
