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 Sprinkling:

A fair dilution of this disinfectant is made and fed to the soil every 15-30 days with a sprinkler. Helps in treating the following diseases of tea cultivation:

  • Root rot, caused by Phytophthora cinnamomi reduces plant growth, discolours roots and leaves, leading to rapid death of the plant
  • Black Rot, by Corticium sp. gradually affects younger tea bushes leading to gradual loss of crops 
  • Dieback, by Fusarium solani causes black patches on the primary and seed decay 

Regular treatment by Drench method:

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

  • Root Knot NematodesMeloidogyne incognita, identified by numerous gall formations on the root 
  • Cockchafer Grub, Holotrichia impressa 

Soil Fumigation: 

A solution is made and applied uniformly on moistened soil beds during tea cultivation. Helps in the treatment of:

  • Root Knot Nematodes, Meloidogyne incognita, identified by numerous gall formations on the root
  • Cockchafer Grub, Holotrichia impressa 

Regular treatment by Spray method:

A solution of this disinfectant is sprayed on the plants once in every 7-15 days helping in treating the following diseases:

  • Root Rot, caused by Phytophthora cinnamomi reduces plant growth, discolours roots and leaves, leading to rapid death of the plant
  • Blister Blight, by Exobasidium vexans is identified by the presence of mall yellow leaf spots with blighted patches on the undersides
  • Brown Blight, caused by Colletotrichum camelliae causing discolouration of leaves, wiith irregular patches of grey mycelium
  • Black Rot, by Corticium sp. gradually affects younger tea bushes leading to gradual loss of crops
  • Poria Branch Canker, by Poria hypobrunnea is seen as yellow wilted plants
  • Grey Blight, by Pestalozzia theae is seen as discoloured circular patches on stem with distinct rings of mycelium
  • Damping off, caused by Pythium sp. causing mass death of seedlings with lesions at ground level
  • Leaf & Stem Red Rust, caused by Cephaleuros parasiticus, Cephaleuros mycoidae affects young stems with small brown warts forming on leaf surfaces
  • Poria Root Disease, by Poria hypobrunnea seen as yellow wilted plants which upon uprooting show white mycelial growth on the roots, with reddish fruiting bodies 
  • Thorny Stem Blight, by Tunstallia aculeata is identified by undulation patches on the stem 
  • Termites&nbsp colony formation adjacent to the stem
  • Red Spider Mite, Oligonychus coffeae attacks upper surfaces of leaves with reddish spots develop 
  • Jassid, Empoasca flavescence attacks young leaves and tender stems 
  • Aphids, Toxoptera aurantil attacks buds, tender stems, and shoots 
  • Looper caterpillar, Buzura suppresseria feeds on young leaves 
  • Red Rust, by Cephaleuros parasiticus cause yellowing of leaves, with reddish to orange fruiting bodies
