Potato Early Dying Complex

Potato Early Dying Complex – Control Nematodes from Eating Into Potato Roots.

Potato early dying complex is caused by two sources – a nematode and hostile endophyte (Verticillium) that enters and grows inside the plant.

Potato Early Dying Disease Makes Crops Unmarketable.

Our Beauveria bassiana (Bb) REPELS the nematode to the extent that the nematode will not eat the root which would have created an opening for a hostile endophyte to enter the plant.

Potato early dying complex is obvious in this potato field.

When Beauveria bassiana is used to coat seed potatoes/seeds, it is incorporated into the roots and grows in the plant between the plant cells in a symbiotic relationship.

The Beauveria bassiana repels the nematode to the extent that the nematode will not eat the root which would have created the opening for the hostile endophyte to enter the plant.

In addition, as the symbiotic Beauveria bassiana is growing inside the plant, the hostile Verticillium is excluded from also growing inside the plant.

The results from using our Beauveria bassiana, which we have researched and developed over more than 20 years, are:

  1. Healthier plants
  2. More uniform potatoes meaning increased yield of premium potatoes and higher revenues/profits.
  3. Increased yield of more than 20 CWT per acre
  4. Potatoes with a significantly longer storage life
  5. Pick outs reduced from 23% to 2%

Natural Scientific Solution – SBb 2.5 or SPE 120 – Beauveria bassiana Repels Nematodes!

  • Beauvaria bassiana (Bb) is a plant health enhancer. It grows in harmony and interstitially within the roots, stems, and leaves of the plant, strengthening the plant as it grows.
  • Beauvaria bassiana helps plants fend off future pathogens and diseases.
  • Once in the ground, the active Bb spores can live in the soil for seven years or more, benefiting future planting.
  • Bb already exists naturally in the soil but due to current farming practices, it has been tilled out of the soil. We are simply adding back nature’s method of protecting plants from disease and pests.
  • It is safe for humans, plants, and beneficial insects
