Astha TH is a biofungicide manufactured by Lila Agrotech Pvt. Ltd. It is made from the fungus Trichoderma harzianum, which is a naturally occurring beneficial fungus. Astha TH can be used to protect a wide range of plants from a variety of fungal diseases, including:
- Damping-off: Damping-off is a fungal disease that affects young seedlings, causing them to rot and die. Astha TH can be applied to the soil to prevent damping-off.
- Root rot: Root rot is a fungal disease that attacks the roots of plants, causing them to wilt and die. Astha TH can be applied to the soil to prevent and treat root rot.
- Powdery mildew: Powdery mildew is a fungal disease that causes a white powdery coating on the leaves of plants. Astha TH can be applied to the foliage of plants to prevent and treat powdery mildew.
- Early blight: Early blight is a fungal disease that affects tomatoes, potatoes, and other vegetables. It causes brown spots on the leaves and fruit of plants. Astha TH can be applied to the foliage of plants to prevent and treat early blight.
- Late blight: Late blight is a fungal disease that affects tomatoes, potatoes, and other vegetables. It causes large black spots on the leaves and fruit of plants. Astha TH can be applied to the foliage of plants to prevent and treat late blight.
Capsule rot: Capsule rot is a fungal disease that affects the capsules of plants, such as cotton, okra, and eggplant. The fungus causes the capsules to rot and fall off the plant, resulting in reduced yields.
Collar rot: Collar rot is a fungal disease that affects the base of the stem of plants, such as tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant. The fungus causes the stem to rot and collapse, killing the plant.
Foot rot:Foot rot is a fungal disease that affects the roots and crown of plants, such as lettuce, celery, and cabbage. The fungus causes the roots to rot, which can lead to wilting and death of the plant.
Rhizome rot: Rhizome rot is a fungal disease that affects the rhizomes of plants, such as ginger, turmeric, and bamboo. The fungus causes the rhizomes to rot, which can kill the plant.
Stem rot: Stem rot is a fungal disease that affects the stems of plants, such as potatoes, tomatoes, and peppers. The fungus causes the stems to rot, which can lead to wilting and death of the plant.
Dholaa disease: Dholaa disease is a fungal disease that affects the leaves and stems of rice plants. The fungus causes the leaves to turn yellow and die, and the stems to become weak and break.
How these diseases disturb plants:
These diseases disturb plants in a number of ways, including:
- Reducing the amount of available water and nutrients to the plant.
- Damaging the plant’s root system, making it difficult for the plant to absorb water and nutrients.
- Weakening the plant’s stem, making it more susceptible to breakage.
- Killing the plant’s leaves and fruits.
In severe cases, these diseases can kill the entire plant.
How Astha TH Works
Astha TH works by competing with other fungi for space and nutrients. It also produces enzymes that break down the cell walls of fungal pathogens. Astha TH is a systemic fungicide, which means that it is absorbed by the plant and moves throughout its tissues. This makes Astha TH very effective at preventing and treating fungal diseases.
