Natural Fungicide

Bacillus Firmus

Bacillus firmus powder for sale kill nematodes naturally

Bacillus firmus is a natural biological nematicide that effectively suppresses both the larvae and adult stages of various plant parasitic nematodes. It kills nematodes naturally including root knot, cyst, remiform, burrowing, citrus, golden cyst, and lesion nematodes. The active ingredient acts preventively to manage nematodes in soil before they become a problem for crops. It is an effective and environmentally friendly solution for nematode treatment. Novobac is reliable manufacturer for nematicide powder production.

Mode of Action

  • Produces enzymes proteases and chitinases that break down the nematode’s protective cuticle. The cuticle is a hard protective layer which shields the nematode from predators and environmental exposures. By breaking down the cuticle, it kills nematodes naturally.
  • Produces toxic compounds lipopeptides and polyketides. These compounds are released when the nematodes in soil are in contact with the powder or its spores. The toxic compounds can disrupt the metabolic processes, leading to paralysis and death.
  • Produces substances for nematode treatment, which disrupts the formation of the eggs and larvae to kill nematodes naturally.
  • Enhances plant growth and nutrient uptake. It does this by producing plant growth-prom oting substances indole acetic acid (IAA), gibberellins, and cytokinins. These substances stimulate root growth and increase nutrient absorption, leading to improved crop yields.



  • Biological control: Inhibits the growth of nematodes in soil by producing secondary metabolites antibiotics, enzymes, and volatile compounds.
  • Improved nutrient availability: Improves yield by solubilizing minerals.
  • Plant growth promotion: Produces substances which can stimulate root growth, increase nutrient absorption, and enhance stress tolerance.
  • Enhanced soil health: Contributes to enhanced soil health by improving soil structure and increasing microbial diversity. This can result in improved water retention, nutrient cycling, and overall soil health.

Application Rate

  • For soil treatment, 3 kg per acre before and after sowing/planting. Reapplication at 1 kg per acre is recommended every 4 weeks for season-long control. It can be applied via drench, drip-irrigation, or by spray while sowing to the cultivation medium to kill nematodes naturally.
  • For seed treatment, mix it with water (200 gram /100 kgs seed) and apply to seed ensuring even coverage. It should only be applied through a properly-calibrated seed treatment machine to high quality undamaged seed.
