Bacillus thuringiensis is a Gram-positive, soil dwelling bacterium of the genus Bacillus. It was described as a cornerstone of modern agriculture. Spores and crystalline insecticidal proteins produced by Bacillus thuringiensis are used as specific insecticides.

Because of their specificity, these pesticides are regarded as environmentally friendly, with little or no effect on humans, wildlife, pollinators, and most other beneficial insects. We are renowned bacillus manufacturers and suppliers from India.

Bacillus thuringiensis can be sprinkled around the root-zone and incorporated into the soil either mechanically or through watering the plant. The frequency of application also depends on the pest and the crop. For greenhouse pest problems, application once in every 15-20 days is recommended.

The bacteria compete with and thereby suppress plant disease fungal organisms such as Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Aspergillus, and others. Bacillus subtilis / pumilus continue to live on the root system and provide protection throughout the growing season. Therefore, even if treated seeds are stored for prolonged periods, the bacteria stay alive, and then grow and multiply after the seeds are planted.
