Outstanding Results With PRO-MIX BIOFUNGICIDE
Tuesday, September 12, 2017
All PRO-MIX BIOFUNGICIDE* products have been enriched with a biofungicide that prevents root diseases. Bacillus subtilis-MBI-600 bacteria colonize developing root systems and suppress disease causing organisms such as Pythium, Rhizoctonia and Fusarium.
When properly used, PRO-MIX BIOFUNGICIDE* has the following benefits:
- Protection against damping-off, crown and root rots caused by Pythium, Rhizoctonia
- Enhanced germination;
- Better plant growth;
- Reduced risk of developing pathogen resistance;
- Broad spectrum of action against diseases.
PRO-MIX BIOFUNGICIDE* operates to reduce disease symptoms by one or a combination of mechanisms, which essentially confer upon them a competitive advantage over the pathogen. They can result in: direct destruction of pathogen, a reduction of the spread of the pathogen and/or pathogen exclusion from the site of infection.
*All BIOFUNGICIDE products are available under BIOSTIMULANT in Canada and in Latin America.
