What is Bio-Magic?

Bio-Magic is a biological insecticide based on a selective strain of naturally-occurring entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae. It contains spores and mycelial fragments of M. anisopliae. It is available in liquid (1x109 CFU's/ml) and powder (1x108CFU's/gm) formulation.


Mode of Action

When the spore of this fungus comes in contact with the cuticle (skin) of the target insect pests, it germinates and grows directly through the spiracle cuticle in to the inner body of the host. The fungus proliferates throughout the insect's body, draining the insect of nutrients and the infected insects eventually dies.

Dose and Method of Application

Foliar Spray (plant hoppers and bugs): Mix Bio-Magic @ 3 Litres or 4 kg / hectare in 500 Litres of water (i.e., 6 ml or 8 gm per Litre of water). The product should be sprayed on growing plants using hand, ground or aerial equipment targeting the insects. The spray volume depends upon the crop canopy. Repeat application is needed for better control

Soil Application (for root grubs): Mix Bio-Magic @ 3 Litres or 4 kg / hectare in 500 Litres of water (i.e., 6 ml or 8 gm per Litre of water). Bio-Magic can be sprinkled around the root-zone and incorporated into the soil either mechanically or through profuse watering of the plant. Alternatively, Bio-Magic at the recommended rate can be mixed with 1000 kgs of organic fertilizer or field soil and can be applied uniformly.

Drip System: Mix Bio-Magic with water @ 6 ml or 8 gm / Litre and incorporate it into the soil through the drip irrigation system during the pre or post planting stage.

Apply preferably in the early morning or during late evening hours. Use the spray solution as a direct spray targeting the pests on the undersides of the leaves.

Preparation of Spray Solution

Suspend Bio-Magic (@ 3 Litre or 4 kg / ha) in a clean dry container and add water (20 Litres). Stir the contents well and make up to the final spray volume (500 Litres) with water or with neem solution as a diluent while preparing the spray fluid.

Compatibility

Bio-Magic is compatible with neem and other bio-pesticide products. Do not tank mix Bio-Magic with fungicides.
