Antibiotics, also referred to as antibacterials, are antimicrobial drugs used as a prevention or treatment of bacterial infections. These antibiotics either inhibit the growth of, or kill, the infectious bacteria. As viruses are responsible for huge losses in crop production every year, antibiotics for plants are used to prevent the viruses from destroying all the crops.

These antibacterials possess the ability to suppress the bacterial infections, molds and yeast infections in plant cell and tissue. This will ensure that no virus will ruin the growth and development of the plant.

At Lab Associates we can offer a variety of antibiotics for e.g. anti-bacterial, anti-mycotic and anti-viral. Examples are:

  • Ampicillin
  • Cefotaxime
  • Timentin
  • Nystatin
  • Rifampicin
  • Plant Preservative Mixture (PPM)
  • Kanamycin

Bacterial infections, mold and yeast infections, for example on cherry trees, could be suppressed by antibacterials.

Antibiotics could prevent huge losses in food production, like the production of bananas, as a result of viruses.
