Agro Fumo

Agro Fumo is a WP formulation containing conidia of the entomopathogenic fungus Paecilomyces fumosoroseus. It is pathogenic to Diamond Back Moth (DBM) infesting cabbage and cauliflower, aphids, whiteflies and mites on vegetables, cotton, etc.

Mode of action:

When Paecilomyces fumosoroseus comes in contact with the larvae the fungus secretes chitin dedrading enzymes like chitinase and proteinase which help to dissolve the outer cuticle and penetrate into the haemocoel wherein, mycelium develops further and colonize the whole visceral mass. The infected larvae ultimately die.
