The conditioned Trichoderma grows specifically towards the hyphae of the host fungus, coils around them and attaches to them. The hyphae of Trichoderma colonise the foreign fungal hyphae. Through the secretion of lytic enzymes, the opposing cell walls are degraded and the cell contents are used as food. With the help of the mycoparasitism from the conditioned Avengelus PRO products, the infection burden of the tree can be managed.
Trichoderma initially builds up large populations in the natural environment, which then shrink during the course of time owing to unfavourable environmental conditions, e.g. drought. For these reasons it makes sense to apply our products several times. We recommend 4 doses during the vegetation period every 4 weeks over several years.
Contains fungal spores (Trichoderma) 1×108 (CFU per ml).
Application & Dosage:
Measure 2-10 ml for soil treatment, 30-100 ml for plant or fruiting body treatment to 1 l of water, stir and apply 0.5-1 l per m² of soil with a pot or hand sprayer (spores should reach the first 20-40 cm of the soil) and/or spray directly on the fruiting body using a jug, backpack sprayer or spray barrel. In the case of cork-like fruiting bodies, drill holes and inject the spore solution. When spraying directly onto the fruiting body, select several days without precipitation and below 30 °C to allow Trichoderma to establish itselfs.
After initial treatment, to maintain a stable population of Trichoderma doses should be applied at four week intervals during the growth season. Safe for humans and animals when used properly.
Please note: Avoid mixing Avengelus PRO Gel with products that have a pH value below 4.5 or above 8. Do not mix with products containing fungicides.
Trichoderma atrobrunneum (before harzianum) grows fastest at temperatures between 20 °C and 25 °C. At lower or higher temperatures, growth inhibition occurs. Death of the active ingredient occurs at temperatures above 40 °C, due to irreversible heat-related damage. Cooler temperatures do not pose an existential problem, but growth is inhibited. Even temperatures below 0 °C or unfavourable conditions, such as drought, pose no problem for Trichoderma atrobrunneum (before harzianum), due to the formation of chlamydospores. These spores are formed when Trichoderma atrobrunneum (before harzianum) senses that danger is imminent. Chlamydospores are particularly resistant and ensure the survival of Trichoderma atrobrunneum (before harzianum) .
Avengelus spore solution should be protected from direct sunlight and temperatures above 30 °C. Do not store below 0 °C. Shelf life between 0-4 °C 18 months. Shelf life between 10-15 °C 12 months. Shelf life above 25 °C 1 month. Empty packs can be disposed of with household waste.
