Brevibacillus Laterosporus

Plant growth regulators help enhance crop growth and yield

Brevibacillus laterosporus, also known as Bacillus laterosporus, is a gram-positive bacterium that produces spores with a distinctive lateral position. It hinders the growth of fungi, nematodes, and insects as a plant growth regulator and fertilizer additive. It colonizes the rhizosphere and the plant tissues, and produce antimicrobial compounds and enzymes. It is one of the most effective and eco-friendly biological agents for plant protection.

Mode of Action

  • Produces antibiotics and other secondary metabolites that inhibits the growth and development of plant pathogens.
  • Produces a range of antimicrobial compounds including laterosporulin, bacillomycin D, fengycin, and surfactin, to disrupt the cell membranes of the target organisms, leading to leakage of intracellular contents and cell death.
  • Some of these compounds can also induce systemic resistance in crops, making them more resistant to infection by pathogens.


  • Acts as a plant growth regulator, protecting crops from pests and diseases.
  • Increases the resistance of crops to various biotic and abiotic stresses.
  • Helps in the degradation of organic pollutants present in soil, enhancing soil health.
  • Soil and fertility improver by fixing atmospheric nitrogen.
  • Reduces spoilage to improve the quality and shelf-life of fruits and vegetables.
  • Reduces the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, making agriculture more sustainable
  • Acts as soluble fertilizer additives to enhance plant growth and yield by promoting nutrient uptake.

Application Rate

  • For seed treatment: 5-10 gram per kg of seeds.
  • For soil application: 1-2 kilogramm per hectare.
  • For foliar spray: 3-5 grams per liter of water.


What are the best methods for applying Bacillus laterosporus powder in agriculture?

  • Seed Treatment: Seeding before planting ensures that the bacteria colonize the root system of the seedlings and provide protection against soil-borne pathogens.
  • Soil Application: Directly into the soil ensures that the bacteria colonize the soil and protect the crop roots from pathogens.
  • Foliar Spray: Helps to protect the leaves and stems of plants from fungal and bacterial diseases.
  • Drenching: Applying to the soil as fertilizer additives around the base of the crop ensures that the bacteria reach the root zone of the crop.
  • Hydroponic System: The plant growth regulators can be added to hydroponic systems to prevent the growth of harmful microbes.


Brevibacillus laterosporus powder in controlling plant pathogens compared to chemical means

  • Natural inhabitant of soil and water, and can colonize plant roots and rhizosphere.
  • Broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity against bacteria and fungi that cause crop diseases.
  • Produce spores that are resistant to environmental stress and can be easily formulated and applied .
  • Lower risks of developing resistance in target pathogens, as the fertilizer additives can produce different types of biological active molecules.
  • Lower impacts on non-target organisms, as it is pathogenic to insects, nematodes, and mollusks.
