Oracle is an organic certified liquid base formulation made up from crab extract. It acts as fungicide, viricide, and bactericide. It also shows nematocidal activities. Crab extract containing Chitin and chitosan are naturally-occurring compounds that have potential in agriculture with regard to controlling plant diseases. These molecules were shown to display toxicity and inhibit fungal growth and development. They are active against viruses, bacteria and other pests.
Content : Crab Extract (Chitosan)
Mode of Action : Plasma membrane of fungi is the main target of chitosan. The positive charge of chitosan enables it to interact with negatively charged phospholipids components of fungi membrane. This will increase the permeability of membrane and causes the leakage of cellular contents, which subsequently leads to cell death. Chitosan acts as a chelating agent by binding to trace elements, causing the essential nutrients unavailable for normal growth of fungi. Chitosan could penetrate cell wall of fungi and bind to its DNA. This will inhibit the synthesis of mRNA and, thus, affect the production of essential proteins and enzymes.
Recommended crops : Grapes, Mango, Pomegranate, Apple, Chickoo, Orange, Banana, Tea, Tomato, Onion, Brinjal, Cotton and all vegetables and flowers plant.
