ActinovateŽ 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..

ActinovateŽ 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 ActinovateŽ SP work as well or better than most chemicals.

The benefits of ActinovateŽ SP don't stop there: Because of the special properties of the ActinovateŽ microbe, plants treated with ActinovateŽ SP will be vigorous, have increased vitality and have much better root growth. ActinovateŽ 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 synergetic 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 ActinovateŽ 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 plant and microbe is the optimum balance for a natural, productive soil environment. ActinovateŽ SP makes it happen.


Spray usage is 1 tsp per gallon. For drench, use 1/2 tsp per gallon.
