Bio-Cure-B, is a biological fungicide containing the cells of rhizobacteria, Pseudononas fluorscens. The product is available in liquid (@ of 1x109 bacterial cells / ml) and powder (@ of 1x108 bacterial cells / gm) formulation.
It controls the pathogens by winning the competition for food in the substrate.
Antibiosis: Offers a long-lasting control against the pathogens by secreting secondary metabolites which exhibit antibiosis effect on the pathogen.
Greenhouse Potting Mix or Soil Drench: Suspend Bio-Cure-B in sufficient water (1000 ml or 2000 gm / 100 L) to achieve uniform application. Apply at the rate of 200 ml per cubic meter (loose) of greenhouse potting mix, soil or planting beds.
For Bulbs & Ornamental: Dip bulbs in Bio-Cure-B suspension of 10 ml or 20 gm / Litre prior to planting.
Seed Dressing: Bio-Cure-B @ 6 ml or 8 gm per kg of seeds can be used along with the appropriate stickers / wetting agents to coat the seeds.
Seedling Treatment: Bio-Cure-B @ 10 ml or 20 gm / L of water prior to planting. Over-dosing does not cause any harmful side effects.
Drip System: Bio-Cure-B can be applied through low pressure watering nozzles such as fan nozzles or other watering systems after careful filtering. Agitate to maintain suspension. For best effect, treat potting mix several days before its use for seeding or transplants.
Soil Application: The required quantity of Bio-Cure-B can be mixed with the organic fertilizer (@ 3 Litres or 4 kg of Bio-Cure-B with 1000 kgs of organic fertilizer). Mix it well and apply.
Foliar Spray: Mix Bio-Cure-B @ 3 Litres or 4 kgs / ha in 500 Litres of water and spray during early crop stage. Repeat application every 15 days once in needed for better control.
The Bio-Cure-B should be thoroughly mixed with water and allowed to stand for 10-15 minutes. Decant into a clean container and use it on the same day. Sediment can be tipped onto soil or compost heap, as there is still some benefit left.
Bio-Cure-B is compatible with fungicides. Do not tank mix with herbicides and pesticides.
