Bacillus subtilis

Bacillus subtilis is a bio fungicide and Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR), which colonizes on roots and protects the root system of the plant. It hinders spore germination in plant pathogens and prevents pathogens from attaching to the plant, outcompeting other soil microbes making it exceptional for soil borne fungal diseases and on leaves and fruit diseases.  It enhances the N2 fixation, solubilizes the soil phosphorus, produces siderophores having biocontrol potential (promote plant growth & suppress pathogen growth). Help plants to produce secondary metabolites, regulate intracellular phytohormone and increase plant stress tolerance. Provide healthy growth to the plant and root.

Benefits of Bacillus Subtilis

  • The competitive effects of Bacillus subtilis mainly include nutritional competition and spatial locus competition. It can rapidly and massively multiply and colonize in the rhizosphere and interfere with the colonization and infection of plant pathogenic microorganisms on plants, thereby achieving antibacterial and disease-preventing effects.
  • Bacillus subtilis can produce a variety of materials with antibacterial and bacteriostatic activities during the growth process, such as subtilin, organic acids, antibacterial proteins, etc. These substances can inhibit the growth and reproduction of pathogenic bacteria and even destroy the bacterial structure and kill Pathogens.
  • Bacillus subtilis not only directly inhibits plant pathogenic bacteria but also enhances plant disease resistance by inducing the plant’s disease resistance potential.
