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 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:

  • Root knot Nematodes (Meloidogyne sp.) causes gall formation in the roots that may extend up to an inch in diameter; reduces plant life; causes yellowing of leaves which wilt in summers
  • Xanthomonas campestris produce irregular grayish yellow leaf margins that expand till the midrib creating a characteristic ‘V’ shaped lesion, that may merge to give a burnt appearance, commonly called Bacterial Black Rot
  • Damping off caused by Pythium sp., Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium sp., when seedlings fail to emerge with a slow developing canker at the soil line

Regular treatment by Drip method:

The disinfectant is added to irrigation water and fed to the soil bed through drip line. It is advised to repeat this process once in every 15 days. Helps in the treatment of the following diseases:

  • Root knot Nematodes (Meloidogyne sp.) causes gall formation in the roots that may extend up to an inch in diameter; reduces plant life; causes yellowing of leaves which wilt in summers
  • Damping off caused by Pythium sp., Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium sp., when seedlings fail to emerge with a slow developing canker at the soil line
  • Anthracnose by Colletorichum higgnsianum covers the leaves with dry, circular pale gray lesions

Soil fumigation:

A solution of this disinfectant is applied uniformly on the moistened soil beds. Helps in the treatment of the following:

  • Root knot Nematodes (Meloidogyne sp.) causes gall formation in the roots that may extend up to an inch in diameter; reduces plant life; causes yellowing of leaves which wilt in summers

Regular Treatment by Spray method:

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

  • Xanthomonas campestris produce irregular grayish yellow leaf margins that expand till the midrib creating a characteristic ‘V’ shaped lesion, that may merge to give a burnt appearance, commonly called Bacterial Black Rot
  • Downy Mildew by Peronospora parasitica is identified with yellow patchy leaves with cottony leaf undergrowth
  • Powdery Mildew by Erysiphe cruciferarum is seen as small white leaf patches that may merge to form a dense powdery layer
  • Damping off caused by Pythium sp., Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium sp., when seedlings fail to emerge with a slow developing canker at the soil line
