Verticil Plus

Verticil Plus contains the spores and mycelial fragments of an entomopathogenic fungus called Verticillium lecanii which has mycoparasitic action on rust and powdery mildew fungi. ABTEC Verticillium is available in both wettable powder and liquid formulation.

infects all stages of insects including eggs, larvae, pupae, nymphs and adults. The spores attached to the insect’s cuticle/ integuments germinate and penetrate the insect body. The hyphae, through enzyme action, proliferate in insect body and cause mortality through a combination of chemical, mechanical, water loss and nutrient loss effect. The insect body ultimately gets covered with mycelium and spores, which may get dispersed and cause subsequent infections. Certain toxins called destruxin produced by this fungus also cause the mortality of insects. It effectively controls sucking pests such as Aphids, Scales, Thrips, Whiteflies, Red spider mites, Leaf hoppers and  Mealy bugs, for a wide range of crops. Very effective on Coffee green scales and is eco-friendly and helps to maintain the ecological balance.
