Prevent & Suppress Damaging Diseases With This Biological Fungicide!
Due to its outstanding effectiveness, this classic biofungicide has been in demand since it first came it market in Finland in 1990. It contains the mycelium and spores of Streptomyces Strain K61, a naturally occurring bacterium derived from Sphagnum peat. It thrives in the root zone and controls some of the most destructive of plant pathogens, including damping-off, wilt and root diseases like Alternaria, Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium, Phytopthora and Pythium.
3-Way Mode of Action:
Additional Benefits of Mycostop:
- It rapidly colonizes plant roots, displacing the pathogenic fungi there and depriving it of nourishment.
- Acts as a hyperparasite by disrupting, and ultimately breaking down, the cell walls of the pathogens.
- Produces metabolites that constrain the plant pathogens but encourage the plant's defense mechanisms and promote healthy growth.
- Approved for organic horticulture and agriculture.
- Disease protection lasts for weeks, but the long-lasting impact will be healthier plants and bigger yields.
- Compatible with IPM (Integrated Pest Management) programs.
- It poses no risk to beneficials and there is no risk of resistance being built up.
- Restricted Entry Interval (REI) of 4 hours.
For best results, Mycostop should be used preventatively. However, it can be used for an infestation; in which case, it should be applied at a higher rate and more frequently. Streptomyces
Strain K61 will live in the rhizosphere and keep working for several weeks.
This Product Controls These Pests or Diseases: seed rot, root and stem rot and wilt diseases caused by Fusarium, Alternaria and Phomopsis of container grown ornamentals, vegetables and tree and forest seedlings.
This product will suppress the following diseases: Botrytis Gray Mold and root rots of Pythium, Phytophthora and Rhizoctonia in the greenhouse. NOTE – Use as a seed treatment for seed or soil-borne damping off and early root rot of vegetables, herbs and ornamentals planted in the field or greenhouse.
Mycostop is primarily used in the form of an acqueous solution and then applied as a seed treatment, transplant/cutting dip, soil spray/drench, or through drip irrigation. To make a suspension of Mycostop, mix in a small volume of water, such as 0.25-1.0 gallon, and let stand for approximately 30 minutes. Agitate as needed to evenly disperse Mycostop before diluting to final volume. Refer to the Use Instructions Sheet for additional application information and detailed mix rates.
Full instructions can be found on the Product Label. Do not tank mix with any pesticides or with concentrated fertilizers.
