Natural Fungicide

Bacillus Methylotrophicus

Botrytis treatment fungicides prevent gray mold for strawberry and grape

Bacillus methylotrophicus is a natural solution and powerful biocontrol agent used in agriculture. It can produces antimicrobial and biostimulant compounds that can help plant diseases including gray mold treatment, and improve crop yields. With its multiple benefits, the botrytis fungicide is becoming an increasingly popular choice for sustainable agriculture. If looking for Bacillus Methylotrophicus powder uses in agriculture, choose Novobac for high-quality bacteria and fungi at reasonable price.

Mode of Action

  • Nutrient competition and site competition, occupies a favorable target position by colonizing and multiplying in the rhizosphere, surface or body of the plant to reduce the chance of pathogenic microorganism infection.
  • Inhibit the growth of plant pathogens by producing antimicrobial compounds likes bacillomycin, fungistatin, bacilysin and iturin
  • Stimulate root growth, increase nutrient uptake through secreting biostimulant compounds such as Auxins, Cytokinins, Gibberellins and Polyamines,
  • Secrete siderophiles, which can compete with pathogenic bacteria for Fe3+ in the soil. Since iron is an essential trace element for microbial growth, the botrytis fungicide can inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria.
  • It produces esterases, hydrolases, and oxidases enzymes, break down the chemical bonds in the pesticide molecules, makes them more accessible to other microorganisms that can further degrade the compounds.



  • Protect soil health and improve nutrient retention long-term
  • Effective biocontrol various plant pathogens such as gray mold
  • Degrades organic pesticides and herbicides residue
  • Can be rapidly colonized and propagated in the roots of crops
  • Adjust the soil microecological balance
  • Avoid the soil problem by continuous cropping
  • Improve the utilization ratio of fertilizer

Application Rate

  • Apply 2-3 kg per acre, apply as early as possible to the crop for optimal effect, such as seed germination, root development, or transplanting.
  • Mixed with water or other compatible fertilizers or pesticides, and apply via drench, drip-irrigation, or by spray while sowing to the cultivation medium
  • Reapply at interval of 4 weeks for season-long treatment during the appropriate growth stages
  • Use Bacillus Methylotrophicus biocontrol as part of an integrated pest management (IPM) program, which includes multiple strategies for pest and disease treatment to reduce the reliance on synthetic pesticides and increase the sustainability of the production system.
  • Optimally in temperatures between 25-30°C, soil moisture content of 60-70%, and pH range of 6.5-7.5, suitable to different soil media types.
