"Growing media with Bacillus Pumilus suppresses the growth of root disease pathogens"

PRO-MIX Bio-Fungicide is a line of EPA-registered growing media amended with a natural, non-GMO bacterium called Bacillus pumilus PTB180.

Bacillus pumilus:

  • Rapidly colonize plant roots, forming a protective biofilm around them.
  • Produce a polypeptide that acts as a natural fungicide, suppressing the growth of pathogens such as Alternaria, Fusarium, Pythium, and Rhizoctonia that cause root disease, crown rots, or damping off.


  • Reduce loss of seedlings, liners, and transplants from root disease pathogens.
  • Colonizes all plants and stays with the plant throughout its life cycle.
  • Reduces the need for maintenance applications of fungicide drenches, saving time and money.
  • No need to reapply PRO-MIX Bio-Fungicide – it stays with the plant through its whole life cycle.
