Turf Pro USA – Liquid Products

Class A, Non-pathogenic, Bacillus Spores Added

To add even greater coverage against disease we add the following bacillus to our products:

Bacillus licheniformis – ATCC 55406

Target Pests: Bacillus licheniformis has been found to be effective against a broad array of important plant pathogenic fungi, including Sclerotinia homoeocarpa (Dollar Spot disease), Rhizoctonia solani (Rhizoctonia blight), Rhizoctonia oryzae (Rhizoctonia Sheath Spot), Pyricularia grisea (Gray Leaf Spot), Microdochium nivale (Pink Snow Mold), and Bipolaris sorokiniana (Helminthosporium blight).

Other Uses: Bacillus licheniformis is a ubiquitous bacterium thought to be of importance in the environment as a contributor to nutrient cycling due to the production of protease and amylase enzymes (Claus and Berkeley, 1986).


Bacillus megaterium – ATCC 14581

Target Pests: Potential bacterial biocontrol agent against Rhizoctonia solani

Other Uses: Bacillus megaterium can work as a plant growth promoting rhizobacterium.


Bacillus polymyxa – ATC 842

Target Pests:   Bacillus polymyxa (Paenibacillus polymyxa), shows strong antifungal activity against B. cinerea

Other Uses: Data obtained demonstrates the capacity of lectins LI and LII from the soil nitrogen-fixing bacteria Bacillus polymyxa  to change their proteolytic activity after interaction with surface carbohydrates of wheat seedling roots.


Bacillus circulans – ATCC 9500

Target Pests: As an animal food supplement for chickens it can significantly reduce Campylobacter.

Other Uses: B. circulans can influence plant growth directly through the production of phytohormones and indirectly through nitrogen fixation and the production of biocontrol agents against soul borne patogens.
