Biological fungicide for resistance and residue management.

A preventative biofungicide for the suppression of fungal plant diseases on crops as specified.

A biological fungicide for the suppression of powdery and downy mildew on table grapes and powdery mildew on cucurbits. Ideal in IPM, zero-residue and resistance management programs.

Application Instructions

  • Amylo-X® is compatible with most fertilizers, adjuvants and pesticides but if uncertain check with your Madumbi Technical Advisor before making tank mixes.
  • Do NOT tank mix with copper based pesticides.
  • Avoid the use of silicone spreaders (spreader-stickers and oil-based products are preferred).
  • Avoid extreme pH (between 6–8 is optimal).

Features

  • Broad spectrum biofungicide containing the active ingredient Bacillus amyloliquifaciens isolate D747 supplied by Certis USA.
  • Bacteria based active ingredient.
  • Multiple modes of action.
  • OMRI listed.
  • No Maximum residue limit (MRL).
  • Stable formulation with 2 year shelf life at room temperature.

Benefits

  • Well researched product of high quality delivering consistent results.
  • Ideal resistance management option for IPM programs.
  • Good efficiency and low risk of resistance build-up.
  • Ideal resistance management option in IPM program with conventional chemicals.
  • Suitable for use in organic production.
  • Helps growers meet demands of export markets in terms of minimal/zero residue pest management programs.
  • Limited risk of expiring stock and more consistent results.
  1. Production of antimicrobial metabolites: Amylo-X® is capable of producing a number of antimicrobial metabolites such as Iturin and Surfactin which inhibit growth of fungi and bacteria.
  2. Competition for space and nutrients: Amylo-X® colonizes plant surfaces, occupying space and using up nutrient sources at potential infection sites thus making it difficult for pathogens to get established.
  3. Systemic Acquired Resistance (SAR): Amylo-X® can help activate a plants natural defence mechanisms through SAR. SAR is a state of enhanced immunity to infection demonstrated by plants following an injury or presence of inducer organisms like B. amyloliquefaciens (B.a.).
