Fungicides are real helpers and magic wands of gardeners. For example, the use of "Fitosporin" allows you to greatly simplify the task of protecting your garden from various diseases. Today we will talk about the features of its use, advantages and disadvantages. It should be noted that this is one of the best drugs of its kind. Universal, industrial, microbiological fungicide of prolonged action with a long shelf life allows you to quickly and easily solve the problem of fungal and bacterial diseases. The use of "Fitosporin" can be justified on any fruit and decorative leafy plants.
What is "Fitosporin"
It is a biofungicide with a wide spectrum and long-lasting action. What is the reason for its effectiveness? It includes live spore bacterial culture. It allows to suppress the reproduction of pathogenic microorganisms by the products of their vital activity. In addition, the use of "Fitosporin" allows you to significantly enhance the immune system and stimulate the growth of the plant itself. This is very important to increase their productivity and reduce the risk of re-infection.
The main advantages of "Fitosporin"
First and foremost is its versatility. The drug is suitable for the protection of potatoes, fruit and vegetable crops. The use of "Fitosporin" gives an excellent result in the protection of winter wheat and rye, spring wheat and barley, leguminous plants, and most root crops. But that's not all. If you use this drug, you will have the opportunity to protect the crop from the risk of infection of the fruit with fungal spores. This significantly increases the shelf life and also improves the quality of vegetables during long-term storage. However, there are a lot of similar products on the market today, but it is Fitotorin M most often chosen. Its application is completely safe, which attracts gardeners even more. Vegetables and fruits can be consumed immediately after processing, without meeting a certain period. This is a definite plus.
Let's take a closer look at when it is possible to successfully use Fitosporin. Application (feedback from experienced gardeners suggests that it can be resorted to throughout the season, when processing any crops) of this fungicide is very important in a number of bacterial diseases. These are alternarioz and powdery mildew, fusarium rot, bacteriosis and bacterial rot. Phytophthora and tracheomycosis, bacterial spotting and bacterial carcinoma, dry and wet rot of roots, mold and rust can be treated very quickly. But this is not the whole list of diseases from which Fitosporin helps. The use (for tomatoes of this drug is simply irreplaceable) of the above mentioned means allows to protect the plants from white spot and brown rust, brown rot and powdery mildew, scab and peronospora.
Use of the preparation for processing vegetables before storage
Any vegetables and bulbs sent to storage are exposed to a variety of pathogens. Most often they are affected by gray and white, fruit and bacterial rot, as well as many other types of fungi. At the same time, it should be understood that Fitosporin is not a panacea for all diseases. Application for tomatoes and other vegetables - after harvesting the fruit - can significantly reduce the risk of yield loss, but does not eliminate it completely. The effectiveness of the drug is 65-95%, depending on the disease, this is a very good indicator, especially if we consider that the fungicide we are considering is low toxic and can be used even in an apartment or room environment. As already mentioned, this biological product is a live spore culture. They can survive under any conditions, at a temperature of +50. -50 degrees. That is, even after freezing and thawing, it retains all its properties. If the conditions are unfavorable, the bacterial culture goes into a spore state, but as soon as the conditions are normalized, the bacteria again become active, inhibiting pathogenic fungi and microorganisms by their vital activity.
"Fitosporin" is not only a drug to fight fungi, but also an excellent fertilizer. Marking "M" on the package indicates that the product is enriched with humic bioactive fertilizer gumi. This should be indicated on the packaging. At the same time, keep in mind that humic acids are needed only for the roots, therefore it is worth using such a preparation only at the time of planting.
What is the liquid form of the drug used for?
This is the most popular "Fitosporin M". Application, reviews of which are only positive, involves spraying of vegetative crops on a leaf, as well as processing of vegetables, fruits, berries and tubers before putting it into storage. In this case, a liquid form of the agent is found under various names. You need to know that this is the same drug in its composition, and dilute it the same way: about 10 drops per glass of water. In this solution, you can soak the cuttings or seeds.
This is the second popular form that is often found on the market. If it is spring outside and you plan to plant the plants, it means that Fitosporin-paste is best for you. The use of this form is reduced to dilution with water at the rate of 1: 2. Now you are ready to concentrate, which can be diluted with water immediately before use. For soaking tubers before planting, you need to dilute three tablespoons of the concentrate in a glass of water. And in order to soak the seeds, it is necessary to dilute two drops of the concentrated solution in 100 g of water.
Watering the soil with the help of "Fitosporin" is produced in spring and autumn. To do this, in a bucket of water you need to add only 1 tablespoon of the drug. In this solution, planting material, cuttings and seedlings, seeds are soaked before planting. Typically, this preparation occurs a few days before landing in the ground. In this case, the solution contains 4 drops of the drug and 200 g of water. During intensive growth and development it is necessary to spray the seedlings with this composition about once every two weeks.
Judging by the reviews, the regular use of the considered drug allows you to grow much stronger and healthier plants. Gardeners assure that such seedlings are much less sore, adapt faster to transplanting into the ground, and also flourish and bear fruit, and all at the expense of feeding with humic acids. Another advantage is that the drug is very economical, its consumption is very small. One package of pasta is enough for the whole season (for a small suburban area).
