SUN BIO NEMA is a biological product used in managing pathogenic nematodes in horticultural as well as agricultural crops. It has ability to colonize the eggs of a wide range of phytophagous nematodes. For protection of crop roots it is very easy and protective biotic method. It is effective on Meloidogyne spp. (root knot nematodes); Radopholus similis (burrowing nematode); Heterodera spp. and Globodera spp. (cyst nematodes); Pratylenchus spp. (root lesion nematodes); Rotylenchulus reniformis (reniform nematode); Nacobbus spp. (false root knot nematodes).
The fungus parasites on nematodes. It grows profusely on egg mass of the nematode and also penetrates the egg. The fungal hyphae which penetrate egg destroy and thus preventing further development.
Paceilomyces lilacinus on getting attached to the host forms a dense mycelium that gives rise to conidiophores. These bear phialides at the ends of which spores are formed in long chains. The spore of this fungus acts by infecting, parasitizing and killing eggs, juveniles and young adults of most phytophagous nematode species. The fungus produces an appressorium (a swelling on the end of the germ tube) which marks the start of invasion of insect. The appressorium produces a penetration peg that enters the external skin (cuticle) of the host. The fungus produces hyphae inside insect body which proliferate and start feeding on insect’s internal contents. When the spore of SUN BIO NEMA comes in contact with different stages of the nematodes, they germinate and grow and proliferate throughout the nematode eventually paralysing the nematode leading to the death of the nematode.
Paceilomyces lilacinus produces a serine protease that is toxic to eggs. It also produces proteases and chitinase enzymes that weaken nematodes so as to enable a narrow infection peg to be established and push through the insect’s exterior and pathogenesis it from within.
