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:

  • Anthracnose by Colletotrichum musae causes brown spots on the fruit peel, with large brown to black necrotic patches
  • Banana aphid infestations cause curling and shriveling of leaves, with their colonies usually seen at the base of pseudo-stem

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.

  • Rhizome Rot, by Erwinia sp. identified by yellow watery pseudo-stem breaks
  • Panama disease (Fusarium wilt) by Fusarium oxysporum causes yellowing of older leaves gradually progressing to death
  • Root knot nematodes (Meloidogyne sp.) leading to gall formation on the roots, and reducing plant life 

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:

  • Panama disease (Fusarium wilt) by Fusarium oxysporum causes yellowing of older leaves gradually progressing to death
  • Root knot nematodes (Meloidogyne sp.) leading to gall formation on the roots, and reducing plant life

Soil fumigation:

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

  • Rhizome Rot, by Erwinia sp. identified by yellow watery pseudo-stem breaks
  • Root knot nematodes (Meloidogyne sp.) leading to gall formation on the roots, and reducing plant life
