Monitor is a high cfu, high potency biofungicide based on Trichoderma viride that works against seed borne and soil borne plant diseases occurring in plants. Each spore of monitor is capable of forming a colony that coils fungal pathogens and parasitizes them completely, make competition for food and produces siderophores, degrades cell wall of plant pathogens by secretion of hydrolytic enzymes, induces systemic resistance to plants. Apart from effective disease control, Monitor decomposes raw organic farm wastes, solubilizes soil phosphorus, reclaims adverse soils, promotes plant growth and protects soil ecosystems. Monitor is a water soluble, low dose, high efficacy product. Upon spraying, it leaves no stain on leaves and also controls some foliar diseases.
It is used for production of high quality biopesticides which are user friendly, high potency and high CFU.
Product is approved by IMO.
Product may be used in organic crop production in accordance to the NPOP, India and to the Regulation (EC) 834/2007 & Regulation (EC) 889/2008
Seed and soil borne fungal Pathogens like Fusarium, Pythium, Phytophthora, Rhizoctonia, Sclerotium, Macrophomina etc.
Foliar pathogens like Alternaria, Pyricularia, Curvularia, Colletotrichum, Botryodiplodia etc.
Water soluble, hence user friendly
High field efficacy
Fungal biocontrol agent with broad spectrum efficacy.
Decomposes raw organic manure.
Promotes plant growth.
Reduces soil pH thereby amending the soil.
Method of Application and Dosage
Seed Treatment and Root inoculation :
Seed treatment with Monitor @ 2-5 gm per kg seeds.
Mix 10g of Monitor per litre of water and dip the cuttings and seedlings for 10 minutes before transplanting.
Soil amendment :
Mix 250 gm of MONITOR formulation in 100 kg of well decomposed FYM and cover it for 7 days with gunny bag. Turn the mixture once in every 3-4 days interval, keep at least for 15 days and then broadcast in the field.
Drench the soil with Monitor @ 250-500 gm with 200-400 lit water per acre at 30 days after sowing. Second application at same dose, if the disease persists in long duration crops.
Aerial or spot application/wound dressing:
Spraying of Monitor @ 250-500 gm per acre as foliar spray to control air borne plant diseases like sheath blight diseases affecting above ground parts. Biological control of foliar diseases is rarely practiced when compared to soil-borne diseases as it resulted in little success. The reason being the poor survival of antagonists on above ground plant parts. Aerial application of Monitor prevents black sooty mould fungus on foliage and wounds of shrubs and trees after pruning to prevent decay.
If any crop is infected by diseases and nematodes at same time, apply Yorker along with Monitor.
Monitor contains living organisms and is sensitive to chemical fungicides and botanical pesticides. It is synergistic and gives complementary results, if applied with organic fertilizers, manures, composts, all sulphurs and biofertilizers including mycorrhiza.
