Mycostop Biofungicide contains a naturally occurring bacterial strain isolated from Sphagnum peat, Streptomyces actinobacterium. Streptomyces deprives pathogenic fungi of space and nourishment by colonizing plant roots, where it also acts as a hyperparasite, disrupting cell walls of pathogens and producing metabolites that further inhibit these pathogens
- Easy application by drench, surface spray or through hydroponic delivery
- Can be used simultaneously with nematodes and other biological control organisms
- Control or suppression of many root rot and wilt pathogenic fungi, such as Pythium, Fusarium, Alteraria, Phomopsis, Phizoctonia, Phytophthora and Botrytis. Plants often respond with increased vigor and yield, like a vitamin boost
- Great for Hydroponics, solves most root rot issues
- Apply at any time, regardless of plant maturity/stage
- Use on all crops such as medicinal herbs, vegetables and ornamentals
- OMRI listed since 1988 & EPA registered since 1994
- Colorado MED approved for use on medicinal herbs up to the day of harvest (SDS available upon request)
- *We cannot currently ship this product to Hawaii or Alaska due to restrictions on the import of biologicals.*
When applied as a drench or spray the dried spores and mycelium of the Streptomyces culture in Mycostop germinate and begin to grow on and around the plant roots. In doing so, they create a biological defense against root infecting pathogenic fungi which cause disease such as wilt and root rot.
Mycostop is used by growers for disease caused by Pythium, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, Alternaria, Phomopsis, and to a lesser extent for Botrytis and Phytophtora. Mycostop has particularly good activity against Fusarium, Mycostop is increasingly used as a seed treatment for Pythium, Fusarium, and other seedling pathogens.
Mycostop has been shown to increase plant vigor and yields even in the absence of obvious root pathogen activity, as the Streptomyces produce plant root stimulating hormones that benefit plant health overall.

We are using this all the time in a CCH2O system. Nice instructions from the support people here. They know about hydroponics and they have used stuff like this.
This is expensive but it does what you need in aerocloners and deep water culture systems. Use at lower mix rates in a hydroponic system that does not run off. Makes yields higher because of bigger roots so it does end up paying for itself in a way.
No more risk of losing harvests anymore I only grow with this
I don't have brown roots anymore in any of my hydroponic systems. This fungicide is making better yields too.
You don't have to use it all at one time you can put the rest in a ziplock bag and keep it in the freezer. I have made the big packs last a few months that way for my small garden. Use it every 2 weeks if you keep seeing problems.
This biofungicide saved my gardening season. I had a brutal outbreak of Southern Bacterial Wilt in my tomato garden at the beginning of summer and I lost around 100 plants. I tried every fungicide I could find with no effect-Bonide fungicide and Actinovate were useless and then I decided to give this Mycostop biofungicide a try out of mostly desperation. As soon as I started using it the rampant wilt began to slow and now all of the tomato plants I have treated at least three times are still alive and producing tomatoes or still growing (as I have some that are about 2 months old). This includes a root treatment (which is by far the most crucial part of the entire application), and a two week treatment, followed in three weeks by another treatment (depending on how bad the infection). I bought the 5 gram package and divided it into 10 half gram treatments, which are then mixed in a one gallon sprayer, which worked wonderfully on tomato plants. Fill the sprayer about half way and put in the half gram package-then you have to wait a little over 30 minutes-fill to the line, and agitate then place the top on and shake well before pumping the sprayer up to working pressure-spray on mostly cleaned roots for about 10-15 seconds-spray inside containers and into the soil where the plants will be transplanted. For the two week and three week treatments spray at the base of the stem for 10-15 seconds on each plant.
No root rot in my DWC system and I am getting better harvests
