Biological fungus control that enhances plant vitality!

OMRI-listed, Actinovate SP is a high concentration of a patented beneficial bacterium on a 100% water-soluble powder. As a powerful spray, it controls and suppresses foliar diseases including powdery and downy mildew, botrytis, alternaria. When used as a drench, it controls soilborne diseases including pythium, rhizoctonia, fusarium, phytophthora, verticillium, and other root-decaying fungi. Because of the special properties of this microbe, it makes minerals and micronutrients more available to plants. These plants will be vigorous, have increased vitality and much better root growth. Actinovate SP contains the microorganism Streptomyces lydicus strain WYEC 108. When introduced into the soil, this microbe colonizes and grows around the root system of plants. As it settles into the root's rhizosphere, a synergy occurs such that the microbe feeds from the plant's waste materials while secreting beneficial and protective byproducts. The combination of the colonization and the protective secretions forms a defensive barrier around the plant's root system that in turn suppresses and controls soil pathogens. Finally, this biological fungus control is compatible with chemical fungicides, insecticides, fertilizers and other biologicals. Ship wt 1 lb.

claims of "soluble" are false. Tried dissolving in a gallon of water and only achieved small chunks

I have 9 rosebushes two of which were given to me by my aunt, I believe they are at least 30 years old. This summer all my roses and peony's developed fungal problems, the roses were really effected by black spot. I try to use organic products only and the previous sprays (sulfur based) did not work. I used this product both as a soil drench and spray. It did slow down the problem about 75%. I still have black spot but the plants have come back from just about dead. I intend to use actinovate early in the spring (proactive) and all summer long. It does work, but slowly.

Like this product. I grow 450 roses and this is a good product that I alternate with other fungicides and it gives good results. I have not tried it as a stand alone fungicide.

I bought this product to stop my Don Egolf redbud from dying of verticulum wilt. It did seem to help but I can't be absolutely sure. I did not apply it as often as I should have.
