Purpureocillium lilacinum, previously known as Paecilomyces lilacinus, it works as nematode pesticide, which can infect plant roots and cause damage to crops. P. lilacinum can parasitize the eggs, juveniles, and adult females, inhibit the hatching of eggs and limit the growth of root-knot nematodes. The nematodes spray also has a high tolerance for pH and can grow on various substrates.

Purpureocillium lilacinum is a fungus that is highly effective at controlling various types of nematodes, and even the intestinal roundworms of humans and animals. The nematode pesticide has been shown to have a high rate of egg parasitism of up to 60-70% against Meloidogyne incognita and Nemacystus albicans, and is considered a promising biocontrol agent for preventing and controlling root-knot nematodes.
Paecilomyces lilacinus mode of action is inhibiting root-knot nematodes involves the fungus surrounding the eggs with a viscous matrix of biocontrol bacteria hyphae, which then rupture the surface layer of the egg shell with the help of exogenous metabolites and fungal chitinase. The fungus then invades and replaces the egg shell, and may also secrete toxins to kill the nematodes.
By following these application guidelines, you can effectively protect your crops from nematode damage.
