Ready-to-use fungicide emulsion based on Pseudomonas chlororaphis (strain MA 342)
CERALL is a bio-fungicide based on Pseudomonas chlororaphis, strain MA 342, a gram negative bacterium that lives in the soil. Strain MA 342 is the result of a multiannual research: it has demonstrated a high effectiveness against some important diseases that affect cereals, such as helminthosporium disease (Drechslera graminae, teres, avenae, etc.), stinking smut of wheat (Tilletia caries), loose smut and covered smut (Ustilago avenae and Ustilago hordeii), Septoria nodorum, Bipolaris sorokiniana, etc. CERALL should be used exclusively for the industrial seed treatment. Once on the surface of the seed, Pseudomonas chlororaphis competes with pathogens for attack-areas and for nutrients, preventing their development. Moreover, it strengthens the plant, inducing resistance against pathogens and producing small doses of toxins. The bacterium remains dormant on seed until germination; then it increases in number and keeps a good efficacy until 5th leaf stage. The use of CERALL is allowed in organic farming.
Active substance: Pseudomonas chlororaphis
Authorisation of Ministry of Health: n° 12678 dated 24/05/2005
Pseudomonas chlororaphis 8,7 g/lt
Strain MA 342
Co-formulants: q.s. to g 100
Caution: handle with caution
PRE-HARVEST INTERVAL (PHI):
200 lt tank
MODE AND FIELDS OF APPLICATION:
Applications should be carried out only with closed plant systems located in factories specialized for industrial seed treatment (for example: slurry), directly spraying the seed with the appropriate rate of product (no dilution with water is required).
CERALL should be applied with the following rates:
Cereals (common and durum wheat, barley): 500-750 ml/100 kg of seed. The highest rate should be used on very infected batches.
The product should be used alone.
CERALL keeps its effectiveness for at least 3-4 months, if stored in its original packaging at 4-8°C. If stored at room temperature (20°C), the product should be used within 3 weeks. On seed treated and stored at room temperature, its efficacy lasts more than one year.
CERALL does not require special precautions in handling, because it does not contain active substances of synthetic origin.
Treated seed that are not used may be intended for feeding livestock.
Before using the product, carefully read all the instructions on the packaging label.
