MIKPAECILO is a Paecilomyces lilacinus based product. Paecilomyces is basically filamentous fungus, effective against plant parasitic nematodes.Paecilomyces Slilacinus is a common saprophytic, entomopathogenic, mycoparasitic, saprophytic, as well as nematophagous, filamentous fungus. It is parasitic on nematodes infecting eggs, juveniles, and adult females of root-knot and cyst nematodes. The species can grow at a wide range of temperatures from 8°C to 38°C for a few isolates, with optimal growth in the range 26°C to 30°C. It also has a wide pH tolerance and can grow on a variety of substrates. P. lilacinus has shown promising results for use as a biocontrol agent to control the growth of destructive root-knot nematodes. Paecilomyces protects the roots against plant parasitic nematodes, specifically root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.), Banana nematodes (Radophilus similis) reniform nematode (Rotylenchulusr reniformis), and citrus nematodes (Tylenchulus semipenetrans). These nematodes infect horticultural crops of economic importance.
