Biological Insecticides

Astha Beauveriya

Beauveria bassiana, 1×109 cfu/gm

       Astha Beauveriya is a high cfu, high potency bioinsecticide. Working with broad spectrum activity, it exerts chitin inhibition on insects’ cuticles. As soon as the caterpillars and sucking insects come into the contacts with Astha beauveria, it starts proliferating on insects, inhibits chitin synthesis and kills the target insects’ bodies. Noticeably, Astha beauveria fungus grows rigorously on insects and forms mummies which spread disease epizootics among insects appearing at later stages. This makes sprays effective and cross-infective for longer period, thereby reduces the cost significantly.Astha beauveria is water soluble, low dose, high efficacy product. Upon spraying, it leaves no stain on leaves and can be tank-mixed with half doses of chemical insecticides and all sulphur based fungicides.

SPECIALITY

Water soluble, Low dose, high field efficacy, no staining on sprayed leaf surfaces and can be tank-mixed with half doses of chemical insecticides and all Sulphur based fungicides.

TARGET

All caterpillars, mealy bugs and all other sucking insects.

APPLICATIONS

Spray Astha beauveria @ 5 gm/litre water for the control of all caterpillars, mealy bugs and other sucking insects. Drench Astha beauveria in soil @ 5 gm/litre for soil inhabiting insects. Do not tank-mix chemical fungicides. Apply Astha beauveria and Astha trichocare as cocktail application, when crop is attacked by insects and black sooty mold at the same time. Use Runoff-100 @ 5mI/15 Itr water along with Astha beauveria for better results.

ASTHA BEAUVERIA & ASTHA TRICHOCARE’S COCKTAIL APPLICATION

When Mango, Citrus, Grapes, Cotton and other crops are attacked by sucking insects, hoppers, mealy bugs etc. with simultaneous attack of black sooty mould, apply Astha beauveria and Astha trichocare both by tank-mixing 1kg each one along with 200 litre water to control insects and mould just by single spray.

Use APNA-80 5ml/15 litre water along with Astha beauveria for better results


Astha Pelico

Paecilomyces lilacinus, 2 x 108 cfu/gm

High Potency Bionematicide Paecilomyces lilacinus, 2×108 cfu/gm

Astha pecilo is a high cfu, high potency bionematicide, that parasitizes eggs of nematodes and sometime infects reproductive organs of female nematodes. Astha pecilo promotes plant growth also. Astha pecilo is water soluble, low dose, high efficacy product, works against all plant parasitic nematodes like Root Knot Nematodes, Cyst Nematodes, Reniform Nematodes, Stunt Nematodes and Black Lesion Nematodes

SPECIALITY

Water soluble, Low dose, high field efficacy and plant growth promotion

TARGET

All plant parasitic nematodes like Root Knot Nematodes, Cyst Nematodes, Reniform Nematodes, Stunt Nematodes and Black Lesion Nematodes.

Nematodes are considered as the hidden enemies of our valued crops. They are serpentine shaped multi-cellular micro-organisms possessing sucking type mouthparts through which they suck cell sap from the roots. Generally crop plants are not killed, but they cause yellowing and stunting among the crop plants. Burrowing nematodes help other pathogenic fungi enter into the plant roots and thus encouraging fungal invasion in the crop roots. For controlling nematodes, many tactics like poisoned gas, plastic mulch and chemical nematicides are applied but are not found effective. Instead, they badly impact on useful soil microbes. Looking to this situation, Astha pecilo is among the good alternatives to control nematodes without harming soil eco-system.

Astha Metacare

Metarhizium anisopliae, 1×109 cfu/gm

Astha metacare is a high cfu, high potency bioinsecticide working with broad spectrum activity against Termites, White grubs and other soil inhabiting and foliar insects by inhibiting chitin and insects’ cuticle. It causes primary and secondary disease epizootic among Insects appearing at later stages also. This makes sprays cross-infective and cost-effective.

SPECIALTY

Astha metacare is water soluble, low dose, high efficacy product. Upon spraying, it leaves no stain on leaves and can be tank-mixed with half doses of chemical insecticides and all sulphur based fungicides.

TARGET INSECTS

Grubs, Termites and other sucking insects and Mites.

COMPATIBILITY

It is compatible with all insecticides, plant growth regulators and foliar fertilizers. Do not apply Astha metacare with chemical fungicides.

ECO-SAFETY

It is safe to beneficial parasites, predators, pollinators and other useful lives

APPLICATIONS

Spray Astha metacare @ 5 gm/litre water. Drench Astha metacare in soil @ 5 gm/litre for soil inhabiting insects. Do not tank-mix chemical fungicides. Use Runoff-100 @ 5m1/15 IV water along with Astha metacare for better results.
