Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is proposing registration for the sale and use of Bacillus subtilis strain BU1814 Technical, BAS 154 U ST, BAS 100 U ST, Velondis Plus, Velondis Flex and Velondis Extra, containing the technical grade active ingredient Bacillus subtilis strain BU1814, to be applied as seed treatments to corn, soybean and wheat for the suppression or partial suppression of soil-borne pathogens that cause seed and seedling diseases.
Bacillus subtilis strain BU1814 is a naturally occurring bacterium. It acts by rapidly colonizing germinating seeds and the developing root system. It produces a physical barrier to pathogenic fungi and produces antimicrobial components promoting Induced Systemic Resistance within the plant. It is used preventatively for the suppression or partial suppression of soil-borne pathogens that cause seedling diseases in corn, soybean and wheat.
