To add even greater coverage against disease we add the following bacillus to our
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).
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.
Target Pests: As an animal food supplement for chickens it can significantly reduce
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.
