Avengelus LAB

Custom-made solution for your tree

Are you concerned about a weakened tree and suspect that it might be infected with a wood-decay fungus? Would you like to identify the pathogen? Then we can help you!

MycoSolutions develops products that help weakened trees and plants to recover. Trichoderma harzianum (active substance of our products) helps trees by activating their own defence systems. In addition, Trichoderma harzianum competes very strongly in the soil for nutrients and space and can therefore displace other pathogens in the soil. Trichoderma harzianum is an environmentally friendly fungus that is specifically cultivated in our laboratory and used as a custom-made antagonist. Correctly and carefully applied, can help to mobilize important nutrients such as iron and phosphate in soils.

Laboratory analysis and product development

The development of a custom-made product includes the isolation and molecular biological identification of the pathogen in the laboratory as well as the preparation of a laboratory report. After we receiving your samples the pathogen is isolated in the laboratory and dual-culture tests are performed. A specific highly antagonistic Trichoderma harzianum isolate is developed and produced for your tree. Once it is applied to the tree a process of pre-immunisation is induced and the defense system of the tree is enhanced.

NOTE: Insulation and identification of the pathogen can also be ordered separately – the cost per sample is CHF 275,- / EUR 239,1

After application of Avengelus LAB, the spores of Trichoderma harzianum germinate and the mycelium grows on the root system of the tree. Rapid growth rates and the efficient competition for nutrients and space by Trichoderma harzianum displaces soil pathogens.

Depending on the site and condition of the tree, gel or granulate can be applied. Maybe it is also necessary to use both carrier substances. We are happy to advise you on the choice of our products and help you to develop a personal treatment plan.

The gel contains fungal spores (an antagonist individually customized to the tree with Trichoderma harzianum CBS 140589) 1×10(colony forming units/g), gel with 4 g/L sodium polyacrylate and water.

The granules contain fungal spores (an antagonist individually customized to the tree with Trichoderma harzianum CBS 140589) 1×108 (CFU/g) and corn granules.

Harmless for humans and animals.

Application & Dosage

After the laboratory work, a product for 4 treatments is produced for the first treatment. The amount required depends on the size of the tree and its crown– we offer two packages: Package 1 for a crown below 100 m² for CHF 1.692,50 / EUR 1.471,74 and package 2 for a crown of more than 100 m² for CHF 2.352,50 / EUR 2.045,65. We are also happy to advise you on the type of application – gel or granules. For effective results, follow-up treatments are recommended for a period of 4 years or more and with 4 treatments per year. The products for the follow-up treatments are also custom-made for your tree. However, there are no laboratory expenses. The costs for the following years for a crown below 100 m² are CHF 264,- / EUR 229,57, for a crown of more than 100m² CHF 386,- / EUR 335,65.

Avengelus LAB as gel:

A) Soil treatment: Measure 2 ml gel per liter water. Stir well and apply with a watering can, backpack sprayer or squirting barrel 1 L per m² directly to the soil.

B) Plant treatment: Apply with a brush directly to branches, stem or pruning wounds.

C) Plant application with a spraying bottle: Fill 30-100 ml gel per liter water in a spraying bottle. Fill up spraying bottle with water. Shake well and spray onto the plant tissues.

Storage: 8 to 12 °C in sealed packaging.

Avengelus LAB as granules:

A) Dry application for a long-term effect: Apply 2 ml granules per m² to the soil. Whenever possible add mulch to the soil.

B) Liquid application: Add 2 ml granules to 1 liter of water and soak for at least 20-30 minutes, stir well, filter liquid and apply 1 L per m² of soil with a watering can, backpack sprayer or squirting barrel. The liquid can also be used for a direct application to the plant e.g. leaves.

Application conditions for Avengelus LAB are soil temperatures above 12 °C.
