Companion® is a broad spectrum Biological Fungicide for the prevention, control and suppression of soil borne and foliar fungal and bacterial diseases. It can be used throughout the growing season on all types of crops to control diseases such as Phytophthora, Fusarium, Pythium, Sclerotinia, and on foliar diseases such as Alternaria, Botrytis cinerea, Colletotrichum graminicola and Xanthomonas.
It contains a natural rhizosphere bacteria that quickly populates the soil, forming protective colonies on and around delicate root hairs and on the leaf surface, destroying and warding off diseases. It is a gram-positive bacterium, which survives in extreme environmental conditions including heat & drought, making it a durable and reliable fungicide growers can trust.
This unique biological has been studied for years at leading universities and is proven to elicit the plants natural defense resistance to fight against many pathogens. Companion can be used in combination with other fungicides and phosphites at reduced label rates, boosting their efficacy, resulting in higher yields and a more marketable crop. Companion can be used up until harvest and has an REI of 4 hours. Companion is natural rhizosphere microorganism that contains high concentrations of organic components that can neutralize and reduce the harmful effects of TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) buildup from repeated applications of both chemicals and high salt fertilizers.
Green algae, called cyanobacteria, is a nuisance that can cause negative impact in hydroponic systems. Bacillus subtilis GB03 has the ability of inhibiting or biodegrading cyanobacteria by destroying its cell and plasma membranes, releasing cell organelles. This is an effective and environmentally friendly option for control versus chemical methods such as Algaecides.
