Katyayani Bacillus is composed of a microbe belonging to the PGPR family. It controls plant diseases and promotes growth. Katyayani Bacillus is available in both wettable powder and liquid formulation.
MODE OF ACTION
Katyayani Bacillus controls the growth of certain harmful bacteria and fungi by competing for nutrients, growth sites on plants and by directly colonizing and attaching to fungal pathogens. Seed treatment with Katyayani Bacillus provides a protective zone around seeds. It also acts as a plant growth promoter. Since Katyayani Bacillus is an aerobic spore forming bacteria, they remain viable on the leaf surface long after it has been sprayed.
MOST EFFECTIVE AGAINST
Phytophthora sp., Alternaria sp., Corticium sp., Fusarium, Rhizoctonia sp. Etc.
DOSAGE & METHOD OF APPLICATION
Katyayani Bacillus is mainly used for direct soil application, seed treatment and foliar spraying. Apply in wet soil as basal dose along with organic manure and refresh it periodically along with organic manure. The normal dosage of Katyayani Bacillus is 20g per plant.
Seed Treatment: Spray the seeds with a sticky / gummy solution like starch solution or jaggery solution, so that the surface of the seed will be wet. Take Katyayani Bacillus in a tray (@ 25g /1 kg of seeds), add the wet seeds to this and gently mix by rolling the seeds in the powder so that the seeds will be coated uniformly. Dry the seeds in shade for 30 minutes and sow within a day. For seedlings, dip the seedlings in a slurry of Katyayani Bacillus ( make a 5 – 10% slurry in sticky solution ) for 5 – 10 minutes before planting.
Soil Application: Katyayani Bacillus can be used for soil application after mixing with appropriate amount of Katyayani Super Organic Manure or Farm Yard Manure @ 20kg /Ha.
Foliar Spray: Mix 1kg Katyayani Bacillus in 50 litres of water and spray on the foliage during evening hours.
