Both formulations of Double Nickel®, Double Nickel 55 WG & Double Nickel LC, are OMRI-certified and safe for use in organic production or as part of an integrated pest management (IPM) program to control or suppress over 90 different fungal and bacterial diseases, including Powdery Mildew, Botrytis, Alternaria, Fire Blight, Bacterial Spot and Speck, and more.
The active ingredient Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain D747 is a naturally occuring bacterium that features five modes of action: anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, growth promotion, plant triggering, and competitive exclusion. It has proven to prevent the establishment of disease-causing fungi and bacteria because it rapidly colonizes plant surfaces to protect from disease. Double Nickel has proven efficacy in the treatment of more than 90 diseases in over 74 different crops or ornamentals from research of 700+ lab and field trials. It is NOP approved, OMRI listed, residue exempt and made in the USA, and is safe for beneficials.
Metabolites kill pathogens by disrupting the cell membrane
Metabolites disrupt cell walls and kill pathogens
Improved nutrient uptake through hormonal interactions
Prevention of infection by pathogens
Because Double Nickel features 5 complex modes of action, resistance to the active ingredient is unlikely to occur. This makes the product effective for use in organic production as well as useful in an integrated disease management program. Bacillus amyloliquefaciens strain D747 works to prevent the establishment of disease-causing fungi and bacteria by rapidly colonizing plant surfaces through the production of defense metabolites.
