Blight BioControl is a microbial fungicide that is applicable on leaves and soil as a foliar spray. It targets bacterial or fungal diseases like citrus canker or bacterial leaf spotting, anthracnose, damping off, downy mildew, fusarium, phytophthora, and wilt disease. Any type of blight, fungal, and bacterial infections can significantly reduce crop yields.
At the beginning of disease occurrence, use 7.6 mL of product with one gallon (1 gal.) of water to dilute Blight BioControl and 3.8 mL of productwith 1 gallon to prevent disease occurrence. It canalso be used in other quantities during disease outbreak, respecting the dilution rate of 1:1,000; product to water. After dilution, spray the productonto plant leaf or drench the soil. Do not apply prior to excessive rains, since this may reduce product effectiveness.
Blight BioControl contains the bacterium, Steptomyces griseofuscus, as the active ingredient. This bacterium belongs to the genus of bacteria responsible for over half of the world’s antibiotics. Cultured using our unique fermentation process, S. griseofuscus produces streptomycin, an antibiotic, during the culturing process. This antibiotic helps target multiple blight diseases in plants caused by fungi and other bacteria.
If swallowed, this product may cause lung damage. This product is environmentally friendly, butat disposal do not contaminate water or soil.
The bacterium, Streptomyces griseofuscus produces the antibiotic streptomycin. Streptomycin inhibits protein synthesis in pathogens by disrupting their ribosomes, leading to their mortality. S. griseofuscus also produces other antibiotic compounds such as antimycin, candicidin B, and cycloheximide. These antibiotics play a major role in the biological control of plant pathogens and are relatively innocuous to human health.
