PRODUCT : Containing strain of Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki, Serotype H-3 a, 3b, Strain Z-52.



Parasporal Crystal Containing Delta – endotoxin. and Spores of Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki, Serotype H-3 a, 3b, Strain Z-52.

FORMULATION : WP (Wettable Powder).

SPECTRUM : Highly active upto 3rd instar larvae of Lepidopteran caterpillars including Helicoverpa, Spodoptera, Plutella, Borers, Hairy caterpillars, Cut worms, Army worms, Leaf-rollers and Leaf-miners, Skeletonizers and Defoliaters, pests of Cereals, Pulses, Vegetables, Oil-seeds, Cotton, Fruit trees and Forest trees.

MODE OF ACTION : Biolep acts on larvae through its parasporal crystal delta endotoxin and bacterial spores, causing starvation, paralysis and septicemia of larval bodies ultimately resulting in death of larvae. The endotoxin acts on midgut epithelium cell causing disintegration of gut wall, cessation of feeding activity, starvation and leakage of gut contents into haemolymph and body cavity of the larvae leading to paralysis of larval body. The spores germinate to form bacterial cells mass that multiply in the larval gut and body causing septicemia. Surviving larvae, if any, because of consuming sub-lethal doses, lead to under developed/ deformed pupae/ adults unable to form the progenies.

DIRECTION FOR USE : Make homogenous solution of Biolep in small quantity of water. Dilute the solution in desired volume of water under intermittent stirring. Mix 0.75 - 1.0 kg of Biolep in 500-750 liters of water, This solution is to be sprayed in one hectare area using knapsack or any other conventional high volume sprayer 2 - 3 times at 10-15 days intervals. Spray preferably in evening and on young larval stages or on sighting of egg laying.

ECO-SAFETY : Extremely safe to mammals, human beings, animals, natural parasites, predators, non target insects, fishes, birds, etc. Classified as Class – IV, low hazardous (green label) pesticide. No phytotoxicity and exempted from residue analysis.

SHELF LIFE AND STORAGE : Minimum one year if stored in dark, well ventilated rooms in original package at cool and dry place away from direct sunlight and heat.

WP :
100 gm, 250 gm, 500 gm. and 1.0 kg., in Trilaminated aluminium foil pouches are packed in 10 kg. Cartons.

FURTHER INFORMATION : Biolep results in instant stoppage of feeding and damage followed by death of caterpillars within 24-72 hrs. of application. This results in significant decline of Larval population as well the crop damage.
