Bacterial preparation "Profibact-phyto"









Linked profile in other language
Margarita Bortnik
The Institute of Genetics and Cytology offers consumers the bacterial preparation "Profibact-phyto" to combat root rot of cucumber and green crops under a manufacturing agreement, or the acquisition of trademark rights under a license agreement and is looking for partners to conclude a distribution services agreement.
The bacterial preparation "Profibact-phyto" is designed to combat root rot of cucumber and green crops. The drug is environmentally friendly, its effectiveness is superior or comparable to other biopesticides, while differing in lower consumption rates. "PROFIBACT-PHYTO" has been implemented since 2012 and has proven itself well in the greenhouses of the republic. The regulations for the use of the drug are adapted to the technology of cultivation of cucumber and green crops in closed ground (mineral wool and soil).

The bacterial preparation is recommended:
• to combat cucumber root rot when grown in soil or on mineral wool (hydroponics) in stationary and film greenhouses;
• to combat root and basal rot of tomatoes in protected ground (mineral wool);
• to combat root rot of green crops in flow hydroponics.

The basis of the drug Profibact-phyto:
- Phyto - a mixture of strains of rhizospheric bacteria Bacillus sp. BB58-3 (Group B.
amyloliquefaciens - B. subtilis) and Pseudomonas aurantiaca B-162/255.17. The bacteria included in the preparation are antagonists of a wide range of plant pathogens of fungal and bacterial etiology. The selected combination of active strains in the composition of the preparation ensures high efficiency of biological protection and a balanced growth-stimulating effect on plants.

Detailed information can be found here. (Catalogue of the Institute of Genetics and Cytology of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus "Applied Developments").

The drug is produced according to the requests of JSC "Bobruisk Plant of Biotechnologies".
Advantages and Innovations
In production tests, the biological effectiveness of protecting cucumber from a complex of root rots using the PROFIBACT-PHYTO preparation is 60.8 ... 63.3%. The drug helps to increase the resistance of plants to peronosporosis (biological efficiency - 36.3 ... 63.4%) and other fungal and bacterial infections that affect the vegetative parts of plants. The yield of cucumber as a result of the use of the drug increases by 18 ... 24%. The biological effectiveness of protection against root rot of green crops (dill, parsley) under flow hydroponics is 70...81%.
