It produces enzymes that degrade the cell walls of fungi and colonizes the root zone and secretes antifungal compounds.

Antagonistic Activity of Trichoderma Longibrachiatum Against Pathogenic Fungi
Mode of Action
- Induction of plant defense mechanisms: The anthracnose fungicide induces various defense-related genes in plants toactivatedefense mechanisms against pathogenic fungi.
- Competition for nutrients and space:colonizes the root zone, competing with pathogenic fungi for nutrients and space. This reduces the population of pathogenic fungi and promotes plant growth.
- Production of plant growth-promoting substances:produces auxins, gibberellins, and cytokinins, which promote plant growth and development.
- Mycoparasitism:can directly attack and parasitize pathogenic fungi, leading to their death. This helps to control plant diseases in tomato blight treatment and root rot treatment.
- Biological control: An effective biological control agent against Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, and Pythium. The drench strain colonizes plant roots and generates antifungal compounds to protect them from fungal diseases.
- Plant growth promotion: Increases nutrient availability, enhances root development, and induces systemic resistance against biotic and abiotic stresses.
- Soil health improvement: Improves soil health by decomposing organic matter, releasing nutrients, and suppressing harmful microorganisms in root rot treatment.
- Bioremediation: Degrades pesticides, herbicides, and petroleum hydrocarbons, which makes thefungicide plant spray beneficial for contaminated soil bioremediation.
- Biofertilizer production: Fix atmospheric nitrogen and solubilize phosphorus, making these nutrients available to plants.
- Seed Treatment: Mix 1-2 grams with water to make a paste and coat the seeds with the paste before sowing.
- Soil Application: Apply 1-2 kg per hectare mixed with compost or organic manure during crop growth.
- Foliar Spray: Mix 2-5 grams with one liter of water and spray it on the plants using a foliar sprayer.
- Irrigation: Add 1-2 kg to irrigation water and apply it to the crops.
How can I maximize the effectiveness of the product？
- Use high-quality products: Ensure that the product contains viable and active spores in plant management including tomato blight treatment.
- Apply at the right time: Apply the anthracnose fungicide early in the growing season. This allows the fungus to establish a strong relationship with the plant and provide maximum protection against soil-borne diseases.
- Apply to healthy soils: Works best in soils with a diverse microbial population drench strain. If your soil is lacking in beneficial microbes, consider applying soil amendments or organic matter to improve soil health.
- Avoid using fungicides: Fungicides can kill beneficial fungi, reducing its effectiveness. If fungicides are necessary, apply them at a different time or use them sparingly.
- Follow practices: Crop rotation, proper irrigation, and weed management can help reduce plant stress and disease pressure, improving the effectiveness.
- Monitor crop growth and disease pressure: Adjust your management practices accordingly helps you identify when additional applications may be necessary.
