PRODUCT : Containing strain of Ampelomyces quisqualis.


ACTIVE INGREDIENT : Mycelial fragments and spores of Ampelomyces quisqualis. Spore count: 1 X 108/ ml. min. or 1 X 108/gm. min.

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

SPECTRUM :The fungus Ampelomyces quisqualis is a naturally occurring hyperparasite of powdery mildews. It infects and forms pycnidia (fruiting bodies) within powdery mildew hyphae, conidiophores (specialized spore-producing hyphae), and cleistothecia (the closed fruiting bodies of powdery mildews). This parasitism reduces growth and kill the mildew colony. The mycoparasite is specific to powdery mildews (Erysiphales), but has an extremely broad host range within this diverse group of important plant pathogens. It has been recorded on more than 64 species in the Genera Brasilomyces, Erysiphe, Leveillula, Microsphaera, Phyllactinia, Podosphaera, Sphaerotheca, and Uncinula, as well as the anamorphic genera Oï dium and Oï diopsis. These fungal pathogens are causing many diseases in Vegetable like-Cucurbits; Peas; Beans; Tomato; Cumin; Chilies; Coriander, Fruits like- Grapes; Apple; Mango; Chinese apple (ber); Peas; Strawberry, Pulses, Medicinal and Aromatic crops and Roses.

MODE OF ACTION : After application, gaining moisture- conidia are exuded from the ripe pycnidia and are dispersed by rain-splash to mildew colonies. Free water is required for infection, and infection is favored by warm temperatures (20-30° C). Under favorable conditions, infection can occur in less than 24 hours. The mycoparasite directly penetrates the walls of hyphae, conidiophores, and immature cleistothecia, but may be unable to infect mature cleistothecia. For approximately 7-10 days, the mycoparasite spreads within the hyphae of the HOST colony without killing it. Thereafter, the process of pycnidial formation begins, and is then completed within 2-4 days. Infected cells generally die soon after pycnidial formation begins. Several generations may occur during a single growing season.
