Zironar™ biofungicide/bionematicide

Zironar biofungicide/bionematicide is a root-colonizing biological used at planting that provides season-long protection against critical fungal diseases and soil nematodes. It is compatible with conventional at-plant applications and provides biostimulant effects to help boost yields.

 

Quick Facts

  • Protects against season-long fungal diseases and soil nematodes. This includes diseases caused by Rhizoctonia solani and Fusarium spp. as well as soybean cyst nematodes and root knot nematodes throughout the growing season.
  • This spore-based product creates a biochemical and physical barrier to improve plant health and put plants on a trajectory towards increased yield.
  • Provides an extended period of protection beyond what is typically achieved by standard seed treatment packages.
  • Increases root branching and biomass for enhanced vigor, which is especially beneficial under periods of drought.
  • Liquid soluble concentrate formulation that can be mixed with water and liquid
    soil-applied insecticides.
  • No preharvest or re-entry intervals. No known resistance issues, no crop rotation or
    plant-back restrictions.
  • Offers a two-year shelf life and is highly compatible with other pesticides, fertilizers and seed treatments.

Active ingredients

  • Bacillus licheniformis
  • Bacillus subtilis

Product Overview

Zironar biofungicide/bionematicide mitigates disease stress by providing protection against Rhizoctonia solani and Fusarium spp. as well as season-long challenges like soybean cyst nematodes and root knot nematodes. It provides an additive benefit to nematicide, fungicide or synthetic seed treatment products when soybeans are struggling with plant stressors.

The spore-based product is triggered by seed germination and colonizes roots, creating a chemical and physical barrier. This creates a biofilm that consumes root exudates and competes to exclude other soil microbes. Root biomass is increased for enhanced vigor, which is especially beneficial under periods of drought.

Zironar biofungicide/bionematicide also provides an extended period of protection beyond what is typically achieved by standard seed treatment packages and is shelf stable for two years, making it an excellent tool to biologically enhance plant performance.

Trials show improved plant vigor, seed pod development and root and shoot branching as well as greater stand uniformity and faster rate of canopy closure for fewer weed escapes in the field.
