Bio Control Agents

Pseudomonas Fluorescens

Approx Price: Rs 140 / Kilogram 
Minimum Order Quantity: 50 Kilogram

Pseudomonas Florescence bacteria have a strong oxiding power that helps them break down environmental pollutants and provide useful enzymes and oxygen for plant growth. This bacterium enters the plant system and act as a systemic bio control agent against diseases. Pseudomonas florescence biocide for control of black rot and blister blight diseases.


•It improves soil quality with subsequent uses
•It should not be mixed with antibacterial agents and inorganic fertilizers
•It effectively protects the plant from wilt, root rot, soft rot, blight and damping off effect
•It also controls the rice blast and sheath blight of paddy

Mode of action:

•By secreting an enzyme, it has the capability to destroy the cell wall of the fungal pathogens and annihilate them
•It secrets hydrogen cyanide and antibiotics such as pycocyanin and phenazine, which inhibit the growth of disease causing pathogens
•It also produces siderospores which chelate with iron in the soil, and make it difficult for the pathogens to proliferate
•Further, it secretes several plant growth substances, and these gibberellins like compounds contribute to vigorous crop growth

Trichoderma Viride

Approx Price: Rs 160 / Kilogram 
Minimum Order Quantity: 1 Kilogram
Trichoderma viride is the potential antagonistic fungus which prevents the crops from diseases viz. Root rots, wilts, brown rot, damping off, charcoal rot and other soil borne diseases in crops.

Trichoderma is able to suppress more than 60 species of pathogens (Pythium, Botritis, Phoma, Sclerotinia, Fusarium, Ascochyta, Alternaria and others) on different plants (cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbages, peppers, various ornamentals, cereals and grain legume crops).

Suitable For:

Sugarcane, Pulses, Oilseeds, Cotton, Vegetables, Banana, Coconut, Oil palm, Chilies, Lime, Coffee & Tea, Arecanut & Rubber, Flower crops, Spices, & Contiments etc. ,

Mode of action:

  • The active components of biopesticides made on the base of this fungus-antagonist are their spores, mycelium and products of metabolism
  • The fungus secrets cellulase and chitinase enzymes which react with cell wall of the disease causative pathogenic fungi or bacteria and dissolve the same
  • Trichoderma utilize the protoplasm as a source of food and multiply its spores. By this method the spores of the pathogenic fungi are destroyed
  • In the process of development Trichoderma synthesizes a variety of antibiotics (gliotoxin, viridine, trichodermin and others). They destroy the cell walls of phytopathogenic fungi and produce biologically active substances, which stimulate plant growth and development


  • These strains induce plants to "turn on" their native defense mechanisms offers the likelihood that these strains also will control pathogens other than fungi
  • Trichoderma possess innate resistance to most agricultural chemicals, including fungicides, although individual strains differ in their resistance
