BIOfungicides Alirin-B, Gamair, Gliokladin, Trichocin in questions and answers
For those who still have doubts about using or not using biological products, Alirin-B, Gamair, Gliokladin, Trichocin, those who have not heard what biological products are, how to work with them, what they are for, whether they are dangerous, we offer a list of the most frequently asked questions about what kind of drugs are and give detailed answers to them.
Question: what are biologicals?
Answer: Biological preparations are preparations based on natural microorganisms (bacteria and fungi). Their mechanism of action is the release of natural antibiotics in the process of life that inhibit the development of pathogens, as well as competition with these pathogens for nutrition.
Question: you say that your preparations are biological - why then are they called “pesticides”?
Answer: while state registration of drugs there is no separate concept of “biological products”, therefore, all biological products are registered in the same way as chemical pesticides, and are included in the broad concept of “pesticides”
Question: What is the guarantee that biological products are safe for humans?
Answer: the guarantee of the safety and effectiveness of biological products is the availability of their state registration (not to be confused with TU. TU - these are just technical conditions for production). When passing the procedure state. Registration of the drug and its active substance pass the examination of toxicologists, ecologists, tests for effectiveness, safety and much more. The examinations are carried out by state organizations included in the list of those approved by the Ministry of Agriculture to conduct such examinations. The drug should go on the counter only after receiving the state. registration. Unfortunately, now the market control system practically does not work, therefore, manufacturers' drugs that ignore the mandatory state requirement enter the market. Therefore, we strongly recommend that when choosing a drug, be sure to pay attention to the presence on the packaging of data on its state registration.
Question: How do I know if a drug has state registration?
Answer: All registered drugs are included in the Catalog of pesticides registered in the Russian Federation. The catalog is maintained by the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia. This is open information and anyone can read it on the website of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation.
Question: how safe are biological plant protection products Alirin-B, Gamair, Gliocladin, Trichocin?
Answer: These drugs are safe for humans, bees, fish and animals. The basis of biological products - natural microorganisms (beneficial bacteria and fungi), taken from nature and artificially propagated. The drugs have passed all the necessary examinations and received state registration.
Question: What is the difference between Alirin-B and Gamair?
Answer: Alirin-B is a biological fungicide, and Gamair is a biological bactericide and fungicide. Alirin-B is aimed at suppressing pathogens that cause fungal diseases, such as powdery mildew, late blight, alternariosis, gray rot. Gamair inhibits the development of pathogens of bacterial diseases (various spotting, bacterial rot, vascular and mucous bacterioses) and fungal (scab, moniliosis). In the working solution, the preparations are perfectly compatible and enhance the effect of each other, therefore, we recommend the combined use of both drugs to increase the spectrum of pathogens that you can restrain due to the combined treatment.
Question: What is the difference between Gliocladin and Trichocin?
Answer: At the heart of Trichocin, SP, as well as at the base of Gliokladin, tab. lies the microscopic fungus Trichoderma harzianum. The preparations differ in the concentration of the active substance (Trichocin - a more concentrated drug), strain and preparative form (tablets, powder).
Glyocladintab. it is intended primarily to protect seedlings from root rot, hence the formulation that is easy to dose and use even when growing seedlings on the windowsill.
TrichocinThe joint venture is intended primarily for soil spills. It is completely soluble in water, so it is convenient to use it for spring or autumn disinfection of soil in the beds.
Question: Is it possible to use these biological products during fruiting?
Answer: Need to. The active substance of these biological products are natural microorganisms, therefore, for these drugs, the waiting time (the interval that must be observed between processing and harvesting) is not standardized. This means that you can take off the fruits immediately after processing the plant. Here the scheme works - processed, removed, washed, ate.
Question: where and how to store already opened packages with drug residues?
Answer: the opened bag can be clamped with a clothespin, paper clip or clip, chopped with a stapler or just wrap the top. Opened packaging with the remains of the drug can be stored at room temperature in a dry place, away from children and pets
Question: Can I use an expired drug?
Answer: it is possible, but it is better to use the rate of consumption by a factor of 2 when using it. By the time the expiration date has passed, the effectiveness of the drug is reduced, because the number of active cells of the active substance decreases, but it continues to work.
Question: Is it possible to solve all problems with plant diseases with one drug?
Answer: Unfortunately, there is no such universal “pill for all diseases”. One drug can actively suppress only a few pathogens, and not all at once.
Question: Is it possible to combine treatment with biological products with top dressing, fertilizers and chemical treatments?
Answer: bacteria-based preparations (Alirin-B, tab. and Gamair, tab.) can be combined with fertilizers, and growth stimulants, insecticides, and even chemical fungicides. But mushroom preparations (Glyokladin, tab., Trichocin, SP) are not compatible in one solution with chemical fungicides. In this case, it is worth observing the interval between treatments of 5-7 days.
