Emrald Dakshan contains the insect pathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae which is a widely distributed soil- inhabiting fungus.
When sprayed on the plant, it generally enters into the insects through spiracles and pores in the sense organs and produces a lateral extension of hyphae. When the internal contents have been consumed, the fungus breaks through the cuticle and sporulates, there by killing the insect. The pests are controlled within 3 – 5 days.
Emrald Maulika is a fungal-based Bio controllers containing the fungus, Trichoderma viride. They are highly active on root & stem rots caused by Schlerotinia Rhizoctonia ,wilts caused by Fusarium and blights / leaf spots caused by Alternaria, Ascochyta, Cercospora, Macrophomina, Downy Mildews & powdery mildews. Emrald Maulika act on the plant pathogens, through competition for space & nutrients, act as parasites and disintegrate the pathogen hyphae by enzymes antagonism. They are highly effective where conventional/ chemical fungicides have not able to control the root diseases.
Emrald Maulika are a beneficial fungi, secreting cellulase and chitinase enzymes, which reacts with cell wall of the disease causing pathogenic fungi and dissolve the same. By dissolving the cell wall, the protoplasm comes out and are used as a source of food by used by the fungi resulting in spore multiplication. By this method, the spores of the pathogenic fungi are destroyed.
