Dr. Bacto's Nemos

Dr. Bacto’s Nemos is a biological insecticide based on a selective strain of naturally- occurring entomopathogenic fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus.

The spore of this fungus acts by infecting, parasitizing and killing eggs, juveniles and young adults of most phytophagous nematode species. When the spore of Dr. Bacto’s Nemos comes in contact with different stages of the nematodes, they germinate and grow and proliferate throughout the nematode eventually paralysing the nematode leading to the death of the nematode.

 Dr. Bacto’s Nemos controls effectively and economically important nematodes like root knot nematodes, burrowing nematodes, cyst nematodes, lesion nematodes etc., among wide range of crops.
 Helps to increase the productivity by containing the nematode pests.

Dose and Method of Application:
Soil Application:
Dr. Bacto’s Nemos 1 kg per hectare to be mixed with organic fertilizer or well decomposed organic manure or field soil or any other locally available agriculturally usable organic carrier and applied around the rhizosphere uniformly for existing crops in the field. The Dr. Bacto’s Nemos can be incorporated into the soil either mechanically or through profuse watering the field. It can be incorporated in the field as a pre-plant treatment, or at planting and emergence stage, or immediately after transplanting.
Drip System:
Dr. Bacto’s Nemos 1 kg per hectare is to be mixed in 1000 Litres of water and filter the contents well to separate out extraneous particle if any. After filtering with appropriate filters it can be incorporated into the soil through the drip irrigation systems during the pre or post planting stage.
 The frequency of applications also depends on the Nematode population.
 In the case of high nematode population pressures and in perennial crops, multiple applications are recommended.
