Rizobacter launches first biological fungicide for rice in Argentina

11.09.2020

The Argentine company Rizobacter, in alliance with the National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA), has launched fungicide Rizoderma Arroz in Argentina.

Based on the Trichoderma harzianum fungus (Th2 strain), the fungicide is the first organic application for rice crops launched in the country.

Rizobacter states that field trials demonstrated the effectiveness of Rizoderma Arroz, with a fungicidal control power equal to or greater than that of traditional seed cures. The biofungicide controls Fusarium spp., Alternaria spp and Bioplaris spp.

Rizoderma Arroz increases the volume of plant roots and aerial parts of the seedlings, and is compatible with insecticides for seed treatment.
