ENTAZIA : Fungicide
FMC India recently announced the launch of its latest product, ENTAZIA bio fungicide.
- ENTAZIA is a bio fungicide crop protection product formulated with Bacillus subtilis.
- It was developed by FMC India.
- It will provide farmers with a powerful and sustainable tool to protect their crops from fungi while maintaining environmental integrity.
- It leverages the natural capabilities of Bacillus subtilis to control bacterial leaf blight, one of the most serious diseases of rice.
- By activating the crop’s defence system against plant pathogens, it acts to prevent and control bacterial leaf blight while staying harmless to natural predators and parasites.
- The biological product promotes natural pest defence by utilising the naturally occurring Bacillus subtilis to establish a robust line of defence against bacterial leaf blight.
- By fostering a healthy plant microbiome, it bolsters plants’ resilience to stress factors and contributes to overall growth and vigour.
- It can be applied in an integrated pest management program with FMC’s bio-stimulants and synthetic fungicides for additional plant benefits.
- Leaf Blight is a plant disease that affects the foliage (leaves) of various plants, causing discoloration, wilting, and, in severe cases, the death of the leaves.
