plants health control: leaf and panicle blast

(Pyricularia oryzae)

Rice leaf blast

Vietnam, Can Tho Province,

Cuu Long Delta Rice Research Institute

4-fold treatment according to vegetation with Silver Mix® 1 l/ha
standard A
4-fold treatment according to vegetation by mixture of fungicides and antibiotics:
(tricyclazole 75% + gentamicin sulfate 2%) 18.75 g/ha + (oxytetracycline hydrochloride 6%) 75 g/ha
standard B
4-fold treatment according to vegetation by mixture of fungicides and antibiotics:
(fenoxanil 20%) 0.25 l/ha + (bronopol 200 g/kg) 25 g/ha
IMPORTANT! A comparison was made between mixtures of fungicides and antibiotics (STANDARD A and B) and a fertilizer that promotes plants immune response and disease resistance (Silver Mix®). The fertilizer was applied without the typically required organosilicone super-spreader.
Water consumption: 400-600 l/ha.

Biological efficiency: leaf blast, %

(in the above table: days after treatment; shown are the results obtained after one of four treatments)

Biological efficiency: panicle blast, %

  • 73.9%
    Standard А
  • 78.8%
    Standard B
  • 73.5%
    Application variant

Additional yield factors

  • The effectiveness of the complex eco-friendly fertilizer Silver Mix® against rice blast was comparable to the action of a powerful mixture of fungicides and antibiotics**
  • Plant resistance to leaf blast up to 96.9%
  • Plant resistance to panicle blast up to 73.5%
  • Yield increase compared to Standards
  • Improvement of qualitative indicators of the harvest (additional yield factors)
Standard А – 6.2 t/ha
Standard B – 6.4 t/ha
Application variant – 6.5 t/ha
CROP INCREASE – 0.1-0.3 t/ha
** - the use of antibiotics in agriculture is not permitted in most developed countries.

Up to 96.9%

plants are more resistant to leaf blast

Up to 73.5%

plants are more resistant to panicle blast

i - The “Application variant” is indicated by the name of the product from the SCS-Tech® line that was used ("Silver Mix", "Silver Phos" etс.). This doesn’t mean that only this product was used in the “Application variant”. If more than one product in the line has been used, the "Application variant" may be designated as "SCS-Tech". Plant protection and nutrition programs that include SCS-Tech® products ("Application variant") can use reduced dosages of fungicides.
