Growth Products Introduces Companion® Biological Fungicide Wettable Powder!

Companion Wettable Powder 8 oz Bag

White Plains, NY – Growth Products has expanded its product line to include Companion® Biological Fungicide Wettable Powder, a broad spectrum biological fungicide for the prevention, control and suppression of diseases on all agricultural crops. Companion® Wettable Powder has been registered as a pesticide by the EPA (71065-4) and has obtained an OMRI Listing (Organic Material Review Institute) for use in organic food production.

Companion's® GB03 strain of Bacillus subtilis has multiple modes of action in preventing and controlling soil borne and foliar diseases. It is a naturally occurring (Non-GMO) rhizosphere bacterium, plant growth-promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) that produces a broad-spectrum antibiotic (iturin) which disrupts pathogen cell-wall formation and colonizes quickly to crowd out and prevent pathogen growth and antagonistic effects. University trials have shown that GB03 triggers Induced Systemic Resistance (ISR) in plants, by activating a plant's natural immune system to fight disease.

Available in easy-to-use 8 oz., 20 lb., & 40 lb. packages, Companion® Wettable Powder is a dry concentrate that is fully soluble in water. It can be applied as a soil drench, foliar spray, or organic seed treatment on all types of field grown food crops including; vegetables, herbs, small fruits, berries, and nut trees, as well as in greenhouse plug production and hydroponics operations.
