PROPHYTEX® CE is the latest generation of biofungicidal products developed by LAM International and can not be compared with other Bacillus subtilis based biofungicides in the market. Based on a unique strain, it’s concentrated emulsion (CE) formulation technology, greater stability, high concentration (1 X 1012 CFU/liter), it’s multiple modes of action and reproducible field results, make PROPHYTEX® CE a different microbial fungicide.
The hydrophilic-lipophilic balance (HLB) and the ionic charges of the EC formulation, allows the active ingredient to reach its site of action, adhering to the leaf surface and plant structures. It then is able to penetrate the foliar mesophyll and as a result a localized systemic action takes place. For this reason, PROPHYTEX® CE has a greater significant efficacy than other products that claim to be similar.
PROPHYTEX® CE has a wide spectrum of action against plant pathogens that include Black Sigatoka (Mycosphaerella figiensis), Sheath blight of Rice (Rhizoctonia solani), Late Blight (Phytopthora infestans), Anthracnosis (Colletotrichum gloesporioides), Grey Mildew Disease (Ramularia areola), Powdery Mildew (Oidium spp.), Downy Mildew (Pernospora sparsa) and Coffee Rust (Hemileia vastatrix). Also controls bacteria, such as Ralstonia solanacearum that causes Bacterial Wilt, Burkholderia glumae causing Panicle Blight of Rice, and Black Leg produced by Erwinia carotovora.
