Introduction : Shakti Bacillus is a biological fungicide based on a selected strain of naturally-occurring antagonistic bacteria Bacillus subtilis (NCIM 2063) Shakti Bacillus contains endospores of Bacillus subtilis . It works as both a fungicide and a plant growth promoting rhizosphere bacteria (PGPR). It is formulated as Wettable Powder with CFU count of 1 X 10 ^ 8 / g. We also offer a count of 1 X 1X 10 ^ 9 CFU/g. Shakti Bacillus is approved for use in Organic agriculture.
Mode of Action : Substrate Competition for space and Nutrients : Shakti Bacillus colonizes maximum space and absorbs maximum nutrients available at the target site and thereby controls the pathogens by starving them for food and competing for space- Domino effect.
Mycoparasitism : Shakti Bacillus is a biological fungicide that attacks disease causing pathogens before they reach the plant system. It derives nutrition from the target pathogen and Shakti Bacillus spores multiply inside it and eventually kill the pathogen.
Enzyme production : Shakti Bacillus secretes certain antagonistic secondary metabolites which have an anti fungal effect that pathogenise and kill the disease causing organism.
