AGRI NEMATODE-LIQUID (PAECILOMYCES LILACINUS)
Agri Nematode is a biological insecticide based on a selective strain of naturally occurring entomopathogenic fungus Paecilomycis lilacinus. The product contains mycelia fragments. The spores of this fungus acts by infecting parasitizing and killing eggs and young adults of most phytophagous nematode species.
Mode of action: Mode of Action Conidial penetration: Paecilomyces lilacinus on getting attached to the host forms a dense mycelium that gives rise to conidiophores. These bear phialides at the ends of which spores are formed in long chains. The fungus produces an appressorium (a swelling on the end of the germ tube) which marks the start of invasion of insect. The appressorium produces a penetration peg that enters the external skein (cuticle) of the host. The fungus produces hyphae inside insect body which proliferate and start feeding on insect’s internal contents.
