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 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.

  • Anthracnose by Colletotrichum orbiculare causes brown lesions on the entire plant foliage
  • Downy mildew by Pseudoperonospora cubensis causes thin brown lesions with purple to gray spores on the upper and lower side of the leaves respectively
  • Phytophthora fruit and crown rot by Phytophthora capsici is identified by wilted plants, with brown stem and root lesions; and in periods of high humidity, downy growth is seen

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:

  • Pseudomonas syringae causes small water soaked leaf lesions that under humid conditions exude a milky white substance that dries to form a thin crust; the lesions dry out to form leaf holes
  • Xanthomonas campestris causes small yellow leaf spots that expand into distorted brown lesions with a yellow halo, that dry out leaving curled and distorted leaves

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:

  • Xanthomonas campestris causes small yellow leaf spots that expand into distorted brown lesions with a yellow halo, that dry out leaving curled and distorted leaves
  • Phytophthora fruit and crown rot by Phytophthora capsici is identified by wilted plants, with brown stem and root lesions; and in periods of high humidity, downy growth is seen
