Mycostop is a biological fungicide that contains the spores of a naturally occurring soil microbe called Streptomyces. This microbe is known for its ability to inhibit the growth of a wide range of plant pathogens, including Fusarium, Pythium, Rhizoctonia, and Phytophthora. Mycostop is used to control and prevent fungal diseases in various crops, including vegetables, fruits, flowers, and ornamental plants.
Here are some tips for using Mycostop in your garden:
- Apply Mycostop preventively: Mycostop is most effective when applied preventively, before fungal diseases become established. Apply it early in the season or when planting new plants to prevent fungal diseases from taking hold.
- Use Mycostop in combination with other IPM practices: Mycostop should be used as part of an integrated pest management program that includes other practices such as proper watering, adequate ventilation, and crop rotation. By combining Mycostop with these practices, you can help prevent the development and spread of fungal diseases.
- Reapply Mycostop as needed: Mycostop is not a one-time treatment. It may need to be reapplied throughout the growing season to maintain its effectiveness.
