What is Bacillus amyloliquefaciens?

Bacillus amyloliquefaciens is a species of bacterium in the genus Bacillus that is the source of the BamH1 restriction enzyme. It also synthesizes a natural antibiotic protein barnase, a widely studied ribonuclease that forms a famously tight complex with its intracellular inhibitor barstar, and plantazolicin, an antibiotic with selective activity against Bacillus anthracis.

It is used in agriculture, aquaculture and hydroponics to fight root pathogens such as Ralstonia solanacearum, Pythium, Rhizoctonia solani, Alternaria tenuissima and Fusarium, as well improve root tolerance to salt stress. It is considered a growth-promoting, rhizobacteria and has the ability to quickly colonize roots.

Mode of Action

    Production of enzymes related to the degradation of organic substances
    Attacks cell walls of fungus and bacteria
  • Deprives pathogenic fungi of space and nourishment
  • Produces metabolites that inhibit plant pathogens


  • Enhanced growth and improvement of health
  • Improvement in water quality
  • Increased survival rate
  • Degradation of organic substances at the bottom of the farming pond

Application Guide

For Pond
Put Bacillus amyloliquefaciens in a container (such as a bucket) and mix it with fresh water or seawater depending on the type of aqua farming. After mixing, spread it evenly in the aquaculture pool. You can also put Bacillus amyloliquefaciens after you spray Baccillus amyloliquefaciens/ water mixture to the surface of the feed and dry it.
