ALDERM is a bio fungicide preparation containing spores and mycelia fragments of a selected strain of antagonistic fungus, Trichoderma viride. It is a preventive
biological fungicide that attacks disease causing pathogens before they reach the root system. It grows fast and coils around the pathogen and penetrates through it and by
taking nutrients from the pathogen and makes the pathogen die. It offers a long-lasting control against the pathogen by secreting secondary metabolites which exhibit antibiosis effect on the pathogens.
Mix ALDERM at the proportion of 2-3ml per liter of water/ Mix at 10g for seed treatments/ drip irrigation / FYM. Individual Plants 2ml / 2 grams / liter of water & apply directly into the soil.
Mode of action:
Trichoderma viride secretes Cellulase and Chitinase enzymes which react with cell wall of the disease causative pathogenic fungi or bacteria and dissolve the same. Trichoderma viride also secretes substances such as Gliotoxin, Viridine and Trichodermin which aid in destroying the fungal pathogens. It also inactivates the
pathogen’s enzymes by secreting certain plant growth stimulating substances.
