Target : Bacterial diseases like Leaf Blight, Leaf Spot, Cankers etc. in Tomato, Potato, Rice, Carrot, Cucurbits etc.
This highly effective formula also manages Viral Diseases like Leaf Curl Virus, Yellow Mosaic Virus etc. on Chilli, Okra, Tomato, Papaya, Cucurbits, Cotton, Spices etc.
Mode of Action : As Anti-Bacterial: Eugenol in clove oil has both anti-bacterial and bacteriostatic action.
It induces the cell lysis by the leakage of protein and lipid contents thus damaging the cell wall and cell membrane of the both Gram positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Hydrophobicity of Eugenol enables to partition the lipids of the bacterial cell membrane and mitochondria, thus disturbing the cell structures and rendering them more permeable for its antibacterial action.
Eugenol denatures proteins and reacts with cell membrane phospholipids changing their permeability and inhibiting a great number of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria.
Thus, primary mechanism of action of eugenol is disruption of the cytoplasmic membrane, which increases its nonspecific permeability allowing Eugenol to be dissolved in the membrane and accumulate with consequent damage to the membrane.
As Anti-Viral : Eugenol directly inactivates the free-virus particles and interferes with virion envelope structures required for entry into host cells.
Eugenol ameliorates the oxidative stress and inhibits the expressions of autophagic genes finally impairing the viral strain replication. This results in causing nonspecific and nonproductive binding to host cells preventing a successful infection.
Eugenol may act directly upon the virus envelope inhibiting postpending entry of the virus into cells. A slow buildup of Eugenol on the surface of the capsid over time leads to greater reductions in cell culture infectivity.
How to Apply : Mix the recommended quantity thoroughly in sufficient amount of water & spray on both sides of the leaves / affected areas.
Dosage Liquid : 250 to 300ml per acre.
