Mode of action
Pseudomonas Fluorescens is found to suppress the soil borne diseases caused by pathogens they are well adopted in soil and foliar spray, enhance plant growth and yield. Pseudomonas has the special ability to enter the plant vascular system, reach the various parts of the plant system and act as a systematic bio control agent against various fungal and bacterial diseases. They help in uptake of nutrient and also produce plant growth promoting substances. Iron chelating siderophore antibiotic, hydrogen cyanide and lytic enzymes (Cellulase, Chitnase and protease) produced by Pseudomonas are directly involved in the reduction of plant pathogen and induce plant resistance.
