Title of the Innovation: NAVINYA – A PLANT BASED FORMULATION FOR CONTROL OF MULBERRY ROOT ROT DISEASE

Brief About Innovation

NAVINYA is a formulation mainly consisting of plant based anti-fungal biological compounds that are eco-friendly, non-toxic and non-corrosive for the management of the root rot fungus, Rhizoctonia bataticola (Taub.) in the mulberry. In addition to the biological compounds, few selected organic and inorganic chemicals in small proportions are also used for the preparation of the formulation that function as a synergistic to biological compounds and also these enhance the basic metabolism of the mulberry plant. Trials carried out in the field using this formulation have been very positive in the recovery and rejuvenation of the infected mulberry plants and further spread of the disease has been checked. There has been no residual effect any of the chemicals and the sericulture farmers were able to harvest and use the mulberry leaves for the silkworm rearing without any effects on the silkworms.
