Agricultural Uses

Foliar Sprays

Boost plant health and improve stress tolerance.

Direct Inject/Chemigation

Automate your plant health program with a simple injection system and apply through overhead irrigation or drip application.

Cutting and Root Dip

Dip basal end of cuttings or bare roots into the solution immediately before planting to improve plant vigor.

Seed Treatment

Inoculate seeds prior to planting to help stimulate plant growth and vigor.

Proven 5-Bacillus Plant Health Package

Bacillus licheniformis

Highly virulent strain surviving in varied conditions, specifically targeting tied up nitrates helping to improve nitrogen efficiency in the plant and helping to release other bound-up soil nutrients. Foliar applications will promote plant health and vigor, plus improve the plant’s abiotic stress tolerance.

Bacillus subtilis

Naturally versatile strain, releases soil bound nutrients, powerful enzyme producer, elicits natural plant defenses, and enhances stress tolerance.

Bacillus pumilus

Rapidly colonizes around root structure creating a competitive exclusion scenario, also aids in ammonia utilization. Foliar applications shown to stimulate plan growth and stress tolerance.

Bacillus amyloliquefaciens

Proven to work preventatively through rapid establishment around root zone causing competitive exclusion against pathogens while also improving plants tolerance to abiotic stress.

Bacillus megaterium

Very fast grower, releases soil bound nutrients (especially phosphorous), and know plant growth promoter.

BT NOW®

Biological Insecticide

BT NOW is a water-based, biological insecticide that utilizes a novel strain of bacteria, Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. kurstaki (Btk), to offer targeted control of the caterpillars of certain moths and butterflies on a wide variety of crops. Ingestion of BT NOW paralyzes the insect’s digestive system within hours, halting further crop damage potential. The affected larvae die within 2-5 days.

Active Ingredients

  • Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. kurstaki strain EVB-113-19

Certifications

  • OMRI Listed
Yellow and black caterpillar crawling up broccoli florets
Caterpillar eating a red apple
Many caterpillars feeding on cabbage

Why BT NOW?

  • Easy to use liquid formulation
  • Four-hour REI — Zero-day PHI
  • Low residue — MRL exempt
  • Can be used in conjunction with many beneficials and pollinators
  • Ideal for IPM programs — Low resistance potential (IRAC GROUP: 11A)
  • Tank-mix compatible with many commonly used pesticides, fertilizers and adjuvants

What is BT NOW's mode of action?

The Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. kurstaki (Btk) bacteria found in BT NOW contains natural insecticidal endotoxins called “cry toxins”. When consumed by the larval stage of target lepidoptera pests, these toxins bind to specific receptors in the insect’s gut which immediately disrupts and paralyzes certain digestive functions. After the pest consumes Btk, plant tissue will be protected from further damage as the pest halts all feeding within hours. As the activated toxins disrupt membrane integrity in the caterpillar’s midgut, Btk spores enter the body, proliferate and kill the pest 2-5 days later.


Caterpillar Control in Fall Ornamentals

BT NOW, a water-based product containing a novel strain of Bacillus thuringiensis, effectively targets hatched caterpillars Trichogramma may have missed, giving growers the best chance of a successful harvest. This combination achieves excellent control of caterpillars without harmful residue and without disrupting beneficial insect populations.

How should BT NOW be used?

Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. kurstaki products have a long history of safe and effective use in agriculture, forestry, and ornamental pest management. When applied properly, Btk products control lepidoptera larvae as well as traditional synthetic chemistries while also preserving beneficial species.

BT NOW is most effective on young, actively feeding larvae. For optimal results, employ early scouting programs to identify target caterpillar infestations and apply at first signs of feeding or when scouting program identifies pest presence. Cover foliage thoroughly to ensure product is consumed by the pest. Repeat applications when necessary to maintain control.
