A beneficial bacterium for the control of plant pathogenic fungi, bacterial and nematodes.
The bacteium acts on plant pathogens through different mechanisms.
It attacks the pathogens and disintegrates by secretion of extra cellular enzymes that degrade the complex cell walls of the pathogens.
It release complex toxins that is specific to pathogens which inhibits the germination of the spores and also interfere with growth mechanism. This prevents the establishment of the pathogen on the crop.
Grows abundantly on host surface and acts as a shield and thus preventing penetration of pathogens into plant tissue including nematodes.
It secrete several growth promoting substances (gibberellins, cytokines and indol acetic acid) which induce vigorous growth of the plant. In addition it help plant in to get insoluble phosphorus in easily available forms. All these beneficial effects give plants protection against attack of pathogens.
It has been reported to induce systemic resistance (ISR) in Pseudomonas fluoroscence applied plants. As a result of ISR disease reduction and plant faster green growth were observed in many crops.
