ABTEC Tricho Liquid , Ecofriendly Bio Fungicide for Soil Application
ABTEC Tricho is an ecofriendly bio fungicide mainly used for controlling soil - borne plant diseases as well as certain foliar diseases caused by pathogenic fungi.
ABTEC Tricho is compatible with all bio - fertilizers such as Rhizobium, Azospirillum, VAM, Bio - Potash, Phosphobacteria, etc.
Mode of Action :
The biocontrol activity of Trichoderma sp. is through three main mechanisms, viz., Competition, Antibiosis and Mycoparasitism. Competition refers to the substrate competition for space & nutrients. When we apply ABTEC Tricho, around the base of the plants, it grows quickly and forms a protective cover and prevents the entry of pathogens. Antibiosis refers to the production of antibiotics such as Trichodermin, Viridin, Coninjin etc., which kill the pathogenic fungi.
Mycoparasitism refers to the parasitization, disintergration of pathogen hyphae by enzymes & antagonism by Trichoderma sp.
Apart from this, ABTEC Tricho metabolites stimulate seed germination, plant growth and early flower formation.
It also grows on the root surfaces and surrounding soil particles and provides prolonged protection by acting like a defending mechanism.
Once applied it starts protecting the delicate root system immediately.
It is mainly used for direct soil application. It can be used for seed treatment and foliar spraying also. Apply in wet soil as basal dose along with organic manure and refresh it periodically along with organic manure. The normal dosage of ABTEC Tricho is 10 ml/litre per plant.
Seed treatment : For seeds mix 10 ml ABTEC Tricho / kg of seeds. Seedlings or planting setts can be dipped for 30 min @ 250 - 500 ml per 50 to 60 litre water before planting. After each treatment allow the seed / seedling / sett to dry in shade for 30 minutes before planting.
Soil Application :Mix 2 litre of it (for 1 acre) with 200 kg ABTEC Super Organic Manure or Farm Yard Manure and apply in moist soil / base of trees. Applying 10-20ml /plant as prophylactic treatment gives better results.
Foliar Spray : Mix 500 ml of it in 50 litres of water and spray on the foliage during evening hours.
Most Effective Against :
ABTEC Tricho controls the disease causing pathogens such as Phytophthora sp., Pythium sp., Botrytis cinerea, Sclerotium rolfsii and Sclerotinia homoeocarpa causing root rot, root wilt, seedling rot and color rot diseases in crops.
It is highly active on root and stem rots caused by Sclerotinia & Rhizoctonia, wilts caused by Fusarium and Verticillium and blights/ leaf spots caused by Alternaria, Ascochyta, Cercospora, Macrophomina, Myrothecium, Ramularia, Downy mildews & Powdery mildews, fungal diseases of Cotton, Cereals, Pulses, Vegetables, Oilseeds, Fruit plants and Floriculture.
It prevents plant diseases like root - rot, damping off, capsule rot, rhizome rot disease of various crops like Pepper, Cardamom, Ginger, Banana, Turmeric and quick wilt of Black pepper, Betel vine etc.
