Mode Of Action:The fungus Ampelomyces quisqualis is a naturally occurring hyper parasite of powdery mildews. This parasitism reduces growth and may kill the mildew colony, the micro parasite directly penetrates the walls of hypahe, conidiophores and immature cleastothesia, but may be unable to infect mature cleastothesia. Approximately in 7 – 10 days, microparasites spread within the hyhae of the mildew colony without killing it. Thereafter, the process of pycnidial formation begins and completes within 2 – 4 days, infected cells generally die soon after pycnidial formation begins. Repeated applications of the micro parasite are generally necessary and high humidity and rain fall aid in spread to developing mildews colonies. In adverse climatic condition i.e. low humidity & low temperature /pycnidial which will be produced from the infected mildew are more resistant and persist in the environment for relatively long period at least into next season. These in turn may give rise to viable spores when conditions become favorable again.
Target Disease/Insects:Mainly powdery mildew but also parasitic on Botrytis cinerea, Alternaria solani, Colletotrichum, Coccodes and Cladosporium cucumerinum.
Target Crops:Wide range of powdery mildew affected crops like Cucurbits, Grapes, Apple, Peas, Beans, Tomato, Pulses, Cumin, Chilies, Coriander, Mango, Ber, Peas, Strawberry, Medicinal and Aromatic crops and Roses.
