Efficiency of ROA Natura Microbial Fertilizer vs Plant Pathogens
Fungal Plant Pathogens: Fusarium Crown and Root Rot (Fusarium oxyporum fsp. radicis-lycopersici)
You can see the efficiency analysis report of ROA Natura microbial fertilizer (Arthrobacter sp. , ROA9223 strain) against;
- Fusarium Crown and Root Rot (Fusarium oxyporum fsp. radicis-lycopersici)
below. Test was performed by BATEM (which is an official research institute of Turkish Republic Ministry of Agriculture).
As per this test report;
- mixing with recommended dose (30 ml / 200 l ratio),
- mixing %50 more concentrated dose (30 ml / 100 l ratio),
- mixing %50 more diluted dose (30 ml / 300 l ratio),
ROA Natura microbial fertilizer (Arthrobacter sp. , ROA9223 strain) has performed with high efficiency and blocked fungal plant pathogen(*).
(*): Fusarium oxyporum fsp. radicis-lycopersici are the most resistant species of the Fusarium genus. Chemical fungicides are not effective to control this soilborne pathogen. Proposed solutions are: cultural controls, resistant cultivars. (You may also read that article, published by University of Florida.)
IMPORTANT: Results in those reports were obtained from 2-week test periods. It should be considered that, pathogen control ratios will be more increased, if test periods up to 4 weeks.
