Mechanism of action
It is based on the ability of nanosilver to form in a plant nonspecific, systemic, long-term (for 1-2 months) resistance to fungi and bacteria and to activate growth and biological processes, which has a beneficial effect on increasing yields and improving product quality.
Mechanism of antibacterial and fungicidal action
Silver nanoparticles disrupt the functioning of the membrane proteins of the pathogen cell – the pathogen is destroyed.
Silver nanoparticles increase the production of reactive oxygen species – suppressing the development of the pathogen and increasing plant immunity.
Silver nanoparticles contained in the drug ARGITOS AGRO are fixed and retained on the cell walls of phytopathogenic microorganisms. Silver nanoparticles oxidize and release silver ions, which disrupt the functioning of membrane proteins, especially transport proteins, which leads to the death of the pathogen. The gradual oxidation of silver nanoparticles ensures a prolonged effect of the drug.
Colloidal nanosilver affects metabolism and helps increase the concentration of reactive oxygen species in plant tissues. Reactive oxygen species are one of the main factors of nonspecific plant immunity – they reduce the likelihood of infection and suppress the development of pathogens.
Most pathogenic microorganisms are not able to resist the complex action of colloidal nanosilver. ARGITOS AGRO protects plants from many bacterial and fungal diseases, subject to an average degree of disease development. In conditions of severe, including epiphytotic, development of the disease, when used together with fungicides, ARGITOS AGRO significantly increases their effectiveness.
Mechanism for stimulating plant growth and strengthening photoimmunity
Colloidal nanosilver reduces the plant’s sensitivity to ethylene, the aging hormone, by inhibiting ethylene receptors, which prevents premature aging of the plant and increases productivity.
Colloidal nanosilver increases the concentration of endogenous auxins, growth hormones, in plant tissues by inhibiting enzymes responsible for auxin oxidation. Thanks to this, a powerful root system is formed, the growth and development of plants is enhanced.
The effect of silver on the plant enzyme system, hormonal balance and phytoimmunity is similar for most higher plants, therefore the drug ARGITOS AGRO is effective for stimulating the growth of a wide range of crops.
Procedure for preparing the working solution
The working solution is prepared immediately before spraying in tanks with mechanical mixers. To prepare the working solution, it is necessary to prepare the required amount of ARGITOS AGRO and filtered water in the proportion: 1:500 (200 ml of ARGITOS AGRO concentrate and 99.8 l of water). Add ARGITOS AGRO to the prepared water and mix. The result is 100 liters of working solution.
Requirements for water quality for preparing the working solution: when working with water from artesian sources (with the presence of sulfate ions in high concentrations – more than 30-50 mg/l), it is recommended to use a working solution stabilizer.
Consumption of ARGITOS AGRO working solution:
- when treating seeds – 10 l/ton
- when processing vegetative plants – 200-300 l/ha
- for fruit and berry crops – 800-1000 l/ha
Soaking the seeds must be done 2-3 days before sowing.
The drug is available as a concentrate in sealed containers of 0.2 l, 1 l, 10 l (canister).
Storage conditions : store in a closed container at a temperature from +2 to 50 ° C
Shelf life: 3 years from the date of manufacture
NEW LEVEL OF QUALITY AND SAFETY
ARGITOS AGRO is effective in the fight against fungi of all types, and also destroys all known bacteria and viruses. There is no resistance of microorganisms. This means that ARGITOS AGRO does not require periodic replacement.
The natural and non-toxic drug ARGITOS AGRO destroys only pathogenic microflora and does not harm other bacteria. Absolutely safe for humans, animals, plants, non-toxic (safety class 4).
The cost of processing 1 ton of seeds or grain is 150 rubles.
