Active Ingredients
  • Paecilomyces lilacinus F18

MODE OF ACTION 

Mytech WP P. lilacinus parasitizes and subsequently kills eggs, juveniles and adult females of various plant-parasitic nematodes. It manages nematodes through:

  • Attachment – Upon attachment to the host, P. lilacinus forms a dense mass of mycelia that form conidiophores from which spores are formed in long chains.
  • Invasion – Spores germinate and produce an appressorium with a penetration peg that enters the host(eggs or masses)
  • Proliferation – The fungus produces hyphae inside the host’s body and feeds on the internal contents.
  • Emergence – Hyphae emerge from the egg and produce conidia which are released and continue the infection cycle.
