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.

  • Phytophthora capsici causes permanent wilting of plants; plant stem close to the soil line gets discoloured, with cottony mold on the rotting fruit

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 campestris cause dark lesions that merge to form a tanned layer on the fruits
  • Phytophthora capsici causes permanent wilting of plants; plant stem close to the soil line gets discoloured, with cottony mold on the rotting fruit
  • Pseudomonas syringae causes thin water soaked lesions which expand between the leaf veins; in humid conditions, lesions ooze a milky substance that dries to form a white crust, and tans eventually; the center cracks, leaving leaf holes

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:

  • Pseudomonas syringae causes thin water soaked lesions which expand between the leaf veins; in humid conditions, lesions ooze a milky substance that dries to form a white crust, and tans eventually; the center cracks, leaving leaf holes
