Suppressing Seedling damping off ~ Pythium aphanidermatum in soil

agents introduced to pasteurised potting mix 3 days prior to transplanting
10 days old seedlings
Healthy Seedlings vs Control
with 0.5% inoculum of Pythium Aphanidermatum
any given inoculum level, Companion increased the likelihood of maintaining
healthy seedlings x 6 fold vs Control
biocontrol agents were able to initiate significant biocontrol activity.
that Companion® was able to regenerate & rapidly following
application to exert significant control in the rhizosphere.
Subtilis - Companion® has also been observed to produce antibiotics,
effective against a wide range of plant pathogens.
of bacteria (-Companion® ) to exert significant control of Pythium
is a result of its inherent ecological adoptions to high temperature
and moist conditions & ability to initiate activity rapidly in
the infection court of the pathogen.
