Controlling plant pathogens with Bacillus subtilis B5

Probiotics for agriculture- Bio B5

Probiotics in food and beverages

Bio-B5, a biopesticide-cum-biofertilizer, is a carrier-based formulation with a high concentration of Bacillus subtilis B5. The bacterium survives in the soil for a long time, withstanding harsh conditions and inhibiting the growth of tuber and soil-borne borne pathogens. In addition to its biocontrol activities, it helps the plants grow more effectively.

Bacillus subtilis B5 – 10 billion CFU/Kg

  • Controls soil/tuber borne diseases upto 80%
  • Increases crop yield upto 25%
  • Ensures early and uniform germination
  • Ensures early and uniform germination
  • Promotes the growth of plants by increasing nitrogen uptake, phosphate solubilization and the production of phytohormones.
  • Compatible with systemic and contact fungicides viz. Benlate, Bavistin, Ridomil and Dithane-M45
  • Eco-friendly and non-toxic for humans and animals

Method of application

  • Tuber/seed: Dip in 0.25% solution for 20 minutes
  • Ensures early and uniform germination
BLACK SCURF
black scurf
Black scurf, a fungal disease caused by Rhizoctonia solani that forms black patches on the tuber surface
FUSARIUM ROT/ WILT
wilt
Fusarium rot/wilt is caused by Fusarium solani that enters the plant through the roots and affects both seeds and tubers
EARLY BLIGHT
early blight
Early blight of potato is caused by the fungus Alternaria solani that primarily affects stems and leaves
LATE BLIGHT
early blight
The water mold Phytopthora infestans causes late blight of potato which is identified by black/brownish lesions on leaves and stems
BROWN ROT
brown rot
Infection by Rhizoctonia solani causes brown rot in which the affected leaves become wilted. Later stages of disease causes brown rot in tubers
