Bio-Cure F is a preventive biological (living) fungicide based on a beneficial antagonistic fungus, Trichoderma viride. The product contains the conidial spore and the mycelial fragments that attacks disease-causing pathogens before they reach the root system.
It grows fast and coils around the pathogen and penetrates through it and takes nutrients from the pathogen. The pathogen eventually dies and finally eliminated from the field. Bio-Cure-F controls the disease-causing pathogens causing root rot, root wilt, seedling rot, and collar-rot diseases in crops like tomatoes, potatoes, bananas, etc.

Mode of Action:
Bio Cure-F can control the pathogens through different modes of action.
Substrate competition: Bio Cure-F controls pathogens by creating competition for substrate and nutrients.
Mycoparasitism: It grows fast and coils around the pathogen, then penetrates through it and takes the nutrients from the pathogen. The pathogen eventually dies and is finally eliminated from the field.
Antibiosis: It offers a long-lasting control against the pathogen by secreting secondary metabolites which exhibit an antibiosis effect on the pathogen.
Bio Cure-F is an eco-friendly and non-toxic product. It is safe to the beneficial microbes in the rhizosphere. It increases resistance in the plant system against diseases. It does not create resistance, resurgence or residue problem and is an ‘organic certified’ product.
