Fight Foliar and Root Diseases with Actinovate SP


Actinovate SP is a high concentration of a patented beneficial bacterium on a 100% water soluble powder. This powerful new product effectively suppresses/controls a wide range of soil borne diseases including Pythium, Phytophthora, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, Verticillium and other root decay fungi.

Actinovate SP is also labeled as a spray application for foliar diseases (when appled as a spray) such as Powdery and Downy Mildew, Botrytis, Alternaria and others.

In fact, when used as a preventative, researchers have seen Actinovate SP work as well or better than most chemicals.

The benefits of Actinovate SP don't stop there: Because of the special properties of the Actinovate microbe, plants treated with Actinovate SP will be vigorous, have increased vitality and have much better root growth. Actinovate SP contains the microorganism Streptomyces lydicus strain WYEC 108.

When introduced into the soil this microbe colonizes and grows around the root system of plants. While settling in the root's rhizosphere, the microbe forms a relationship, feeding off of the plant's waste materials while secreting beneficial and protective by-products. This combination of the colonization and the protective secretions forms a defensive barrier around the root system of the plant which in turn suppresses and controls soil pathogens. S. lydicus also has been shown to prey on certain pathogens, disrupting their cell walls and disabling them in the process. Finally, the by-products of the Actinovate microorganism also aid plants in complexing minerals and micronutrients found in the soil, allowing easier uptake and, thus, creating a stronger, more robust plant.

This symbiotic relationship between the plant and the microbe is the optimum balance for a natural, productive soil environment. Actinovate SP makes it happen.

Research & Development

Streptomyces lydicus WYEC 108 is currently used in products by thousands of turf, agriculture and horticulture professionals around the world. For published research and additional trial data measuring the effectiveness of Actinovate SP, please visit our online resources section here.
