FORMULATION : WP (Wettable Powder) and AS (Aqueous Suspension)

SPECTRUM : Highly active on root and stem rots caused by Schlerotinia and Rhizoctonia, damping off caused by Pythium, blights/leaf spots caused by Alternaria, Ascochyta, Cercospora, Macrophomina, Myrothecium, Ramularia, Xanthomonas, Erwinia, wilts caused by Fusarium and Verticillum, downy mildews, Powdery mildews, bacterial and fungal diseases of Cotton, Cereals, Pulses, Vegetables, Oilseeds, Fruit and Floriculture.

MODE OF ACTION : Biomonas/Shield Plus induces systemic resistance by modification of cell wall of host plant (thickening of cell wall by lignifications) accumulation of PR protein-Phytoalexin. Enhanced level of Chitinase and peroxidase, LPS – Lipopolysaccharides, Siderophores, Salicylic acid production. It also acts as a plant growth promoter to stimulate seed germination, root and plant growth, early flowering and fruiting. Produce antibiotic viz. pyrrolnitrin, pyocyanine, 2,4 – diacetyl phoroglucinol. Also produce lytic enzymes-chitinases and beta 1-3, glucanases which degrade chitin and glucan present in the cell wall of fungi.

SEED TREATMENT : Mix 5-10 gm. or ml. of Biomonas/Shield Plus is applied as a paste or slurry for 1.0 kg of seed. Shade dry the seed for half an hour before sowing. Do not apply on seeds treated with chemical pesticides especially Antibiotics.
