POABS GREEN Bio Shield is a formulation containing Pseudomonas fluorescens, which is an antifungal and antibacterial bio control agent.

ADVANTAGES: Pseudomonas fluorescens suppress plant diseases by protecting the seeds and roots from fungal and bacterial infection. This effect is the result of production of a number of secondary metabolites including antibiotics, siderophores and hydrogen cyanide. Pseudomonas secrete numerous antibiotics including P.C.A, D.A.P.G, Oomycin A etc. which show strong antimicrobial activity. They produce siderophores, a compound that binds with iron present in the soil, making it unavailable for other microorganisms Production of fungal cell wall digesting enzymes like β 1-3 Gluconase, Kitinase is another line of defence mechanism exhibited by this bacteria. Pseudomonas fluorescens is found effective in controlling diseases of rice, wheat, vegetables, pulses, cotton, banana etc. incited by species of Helminthosporium, Alternaria, Fusarium, Diplodia, Pyricularia, Cladosporium, Rhizoctonia, Phythopthora, Phythium, Colletotrichum, Ralstonia, Xanthomonas, to name just a few.
