SCLEROCID

SCLEROCID

Biological fungicide to inhibit the development of white rot pathogens

Mechanism of action:

  • highly effective protection against white rot pathogens (Sclerotinia) Sclerotinia minor, Sclerotinia scleurotiorum due to the unique selectivity of Coniothyrium minitans against sclerotia fungi of the genus Sclerotinia and the properties of Coniothyrium minitans and Trichoderma harzianum to exhibit hyperparasitism to fungi of the genus Sclerotinia;
  • neutralizes the pathogen at the stages of mycelial growth and sclerosis;
  • Trichoderma harzianum, Bacillus licheniformis and Bacillus subtilis are able not only to stop sclerotinia in the early phase, but to fight concomitant infections (Fusarium, Alternaria, Septoria), due to the ability to compete with pathogens for food, habitat and to synthesize natural antibiotics;
  • no phytotoxicity (well tolerated by plants regardless of the stage of crop development);
  • strengthening the immune system of plants and soil improvement.

Intended use and application:

  • treatment of soil and crop residues;
  • pre-sowing treatment of seeds of soybean, sunflower, rape, corn;
  • treatment of crops - foliar feeding (spraying);
  • fertigation (band fertilization) during the growing season.

Treatment of soil and crop residues is carried out with a working solution of the biopreparation after harvesting, and in 15-40 days before sowing or planting agricultural crops. The obligatory condition is the presence of moisture in the soil - at least 25-35% of the total water holding capacity at soil temperature of 5-28 C.
To improve the action of the biopreparation, it is preferable to apply SCLEROCID together with the destructor ECOSTERN at the rate of 1.5 l/ha. When used in tank mixture, SCLEROCID is added last.
Pre-sowing seed treatment is carried out in the shade (avoiding direct sunlight) by spraying of seeds with the working solution of SCLEROCID on the day of sowing. Seed treatment is carried out manually, with sprayers or seed treaters. The treated seeds are sown immediately or dried in the shade to a loose state.
Foliar feeding (spraying) during the growing season is carried out with the working solution of the biopreparation in calm weather in the morning or evening with a sprayer or a sprinkler.
Fertigation (band fertilization) is carried out through a drip irrigation system.

Shake the preparation thoroughly before use; after that the application rate of the preparation is dissolved in the required amount of water! The working solution of the biopreparation is prepared on the day of treatment; if necessary, it can be stored in a cool dark place for no more than 4 hours. Immediately before use, stir it until smooth.
