Bio-Tam 2.0 In Action
Bio-Tam 2.0 can be used on most crops, including fruiting vegetables, leafy vegetables and cucurbits, and in greenhouse and field applications. It is a tool to reduce the stress of disease infections associated with many soil-borne pathogens. Bio-Tam 2.0 colonizes the crop roots and surrounding soil. It acts as a protectant, forming a barrier that is antagonistic to disease infection. Bio-Tam 2.0 also attacks the pathogen cell walls with enzymes that actively inhibit disease infection.
