Corn Crop Disease Control with Beauveria bassiana

Our Beauveria bassiana products, both in organic and non-organic forms, have been proven through extensive research and trials to significantly bolster plant resistance against a variety of fungal diseases. This enhancement is particularly notable in corn, which is the top crop grown in the U.S. Our products, including SPE-120 and SBb 2.5, have been shown to improve corn’s resilience to challenges such as Mycotoxins, Fusarium, Goss’s Wilt, Anthracnose, and various pests like Corn Earworm, Northern and Western Corn Root Worm Beetles, and the European Corn Borer.

One of the key advantages of Beauveria bassiana is its ability to fortify plants against extreme environmental conditions, including flooding and drought. This is a critical aspect in today’s agriculture, where such challenges are increasingly prevalent. Additionally, while certain plant protections can be achieved through chemical applications or genetic modification, Beauveria bassiana offers a more holistic approach. Unlike these methods, which typically target a single issue, Beauveria bassiana provides a broad spectrum of benefits.

A striking demonstration of its effectiveness is seen in organic corn farming. When compared to conventional methods that rely on fungicides, pesticides, or foliar biocides, organic farming with Beauveria bassiana not only maintained but significantly enhanced corn yield and quality. Organic corn yields showed a 12- to 20-bushel increase per acre over conventional yields, which averaged only a 4-bushel increase. This not only signifies a healthier crop but also translates into increased profits for growers.

The use of Beauveria bassiana is a game-changer when it comes to your corn crop disease control. It offers a natural, versatile solution that not only protects plants from a range of diseases and pests but also boosts their resilience against environmental stresses, all while enhancing crop yield and quality.

The Beauveria bassiana in SPE 120 and SBb 2.5 is a PLANT isolate and is considered beneficial fungi.

Our Seed & Soil Products Protect & Strengthen Plants as They Grow

Direct contact with seed is preferred to assure plant entry at germination. Applied on, under, or atop of seed allows Beauveria bassiana competitive preference to initial plant roots where it becomes a symbiotic entophyte within the plant.
