Soil-borne diseases cause damage to vegetable crops and reduce yield quality and quantity. Over use and misuse of synthetics pesticides can lead to disease resistance, health hazards to human and animal, and environmental pollution
Reduces impact of soil-borne pathogens on plant/crop performance and yield. Increases protection against plant pathogenic fungi and bacteria. Reduces reliance on synthetic chemical pesticides to control a number of soil-borne and a foliar plant diseases. The fungus also helps with water and nutrient absorption and induces systemic acquired resistance.
