ALSTASAN SILVOX (Silver Hydrogen Peroxide based Biodegradable Agriculture Disinfectant) addresses the following areas of concern without causing harmful/toxic effects.

 

Method of application:

Regular treatment by Spray method:

A solution of the disinfectant is made and sprayed on the plants once in every 7-15 days helps in treating:

  • Xanthomonas axonopodis causes bacterial cankers, identified by raised lesions that collapse to form large brown depressions
  • Pseudomonas syringae causes water soaked lesions on leaf petioles that expand along the midrib with cankers developing on the entire foliage; black fruit lesions
  • Brown rot by Phytophthora sp. causes tanned fruit lesions that give off a pungent smell; twigs and flowers turn brown eventually
  • Phytophthora gummosis by Phytophthora sp. results in cracked barks with oozing sap; pale green leaves with yellow veins

Regular treatment by Drench method:

A fair dilution of the disinfectant is made and the solution is drenched to each plant every 15-30 days. Helps in treating the following diseases:

  • Phytophthora gummosis by Phytophthora sp. results in cracked barks with oozing sap; pale green leaves with yellow veins
  • Anthracnose by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides is identified by stained fruits and foliage covered in dark spores
