Classification: Microbial bio-Nematicide

General Description
Bio-Nematon is a talc-based biological nematicide containing spores and mycelial fragments of a
naturally occurring entomopathogenic fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus, a common saprophyte with
cosmopolitan distribution.
It is used in the control of a wide range of nematode species including Root-knot nematodes
(Meloidogyne spp.) Cyst Nematodes (Heterodera spp.), Burrowing nematodes (Radopholus similis).
Mode of Action
- The spores of this fungus act by infecting, parasitising and killing eggs, juvenile and young adults
of most nematode species.
- When they come into contact with different stages of nematodes, they germinate, grow and
proliferate throughout the nematode eventually paralysing the nematode and killing it.
