Biological stimulyator Albit is developed in Albit Scientific and Industrial LLC by the employees of the Biological scientific centre of the Russian Academy of sciences. Albit is protected by the patent Nr 2147181 «Pesticide for increase of plant productivity and protection from plant pathogens». The inventors of Albit have been engaged in development of biological pesticides over 30 years, joining necessary experience to fulfill farmers' actual requirements.

High efficiency of Albit has been confirmed in more than 250 successful field trials carried out in 1997-2004 by leading russian scientific institutions.

High efficiency of Albit was demonstrated in long-term field trials on winter and spring wheat, barley, rye, oats, rice, sugar beet, sunflower, corn, flax, potato, millet, sorghum buckwheat, soybean, pea, vetch, galega, canola, string bean, lupine, alfalfa, lentil, vine, apple, white and Chinese cabbage, onions, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, pepper, lettuce, eggplants, vegetable marrows, table beet, strawberry, currant, cherry, gooseberry, roses, roses, amaranth, decorative green plantings and wood breeds, lawn grasses, outdoor and greenhouse flowers (total on 50 agricultures).

Albit is registered in Russia and also in a number of the European Union countries. Registration is also in progress in other countries.


Albit contains purified active ingredient (poly-β-hydroxybutyrate, PHB) isolated from soil bacteria Bacillus megaterium and Pseudomonas aureofaciens. In the natural environment, these bacteria inhabit on plant roots and stimulate root growth, protect plants from diseases and unfavorable environmental factors. The formulation also includes balanced starting set of micro and macro-elements (N, P, K, Mg, S, Fe, Mn, Mo, Cu, Co, B, I, Se, Na, Ni, Zn) and terpene acids of coniferous extract. Albit does not contain living microorganisms, that makes its activity more stable and less dependent on environmental conditions. Albit combines low cost and low toxicity of biological pesticides, and efficiency, stability and predictability of chemical pesticides.

Increase of yield and plant growth stimulation. Albit stably increases yield of cereals, sugar beet, sunflower, potato, flax, vegetables, legumes, horticultures, fodder grasses averagely by 5-20% (Plant protection and quarantine, Nr 9, 2005). The yield increase of plant species having high undisclosed potential (such as buckwheat and canola) might reach up to 50 % over the control.

In field trials Albit provided averagely 2.25 times higher yield increase than other biopesticides and plant growth regulators. Effectiveness of Albit was practically the same as that of chemical fungicides, which are tenth times more expensive.

Yield quality

Albit increases gluten content in wheat grain by 0.5-5.1% (averagely by 2.3%). Albit also improves yield quality of other crops, for example, increases sugar content in sugar beet by 0.3-2.0%, output of sunflower oil and percentage-number of flax fibre by 26-55 % (reports of All-Russia Flax Institute).

In vegetables, Albit increases content of vitamins by 6-25 % whereas content of nitrates decreases by 16-26% (reports of All-Russia Institute of Vegetable Selection and Seed Breeding). Joint application of 1 ml of Albit with insecticides provides additionally 5 L of canola oil on average.

Protection against diseases

Albit possesses protective activity, suppressing development of the broad range of main diseases of agricultural crops (root rots, powdery mildew, leaf spots, brown rust, fusarioses, septorioses, anthracnose, scab, late blight, black leg, white and grey decay, bacterioses, etc.); Albit is officially registered in Russia as a mean of protection against 26 diseases. Biological efficiency of the pesticide against diseases is 40-90% averagely. Efficiency of Albit against many diseases is not inferior to that of much more expensive chemical means of protection. E.g., the biological efficiency (BE) of Albit against root rots of cereal crops is 59-81% averagely, whereas BE of chemical fungicides is just 40-70%.

Unlike chemical fungicides, Albit is not toxic and does not eradicate pathogens, but it increases the natural resistance (immunity) of plants. Therefore, plants should be treated before appearance of the first signs of disease, and infestation with complex of pathogens must not exceed 30% (in absence of internal infections). At higher infestation level, the biopesticide is recommended to combine (mix together) with chemical fungicides.

Reduction of applications rates of fungicides and seed treatment agents. Treatment of plants with the majority of chemical pesticides causes stress and temporary oppression of the plants, negatively affecting yield and yield quality. Albit relieves the fungicide-mediated stress, and also increases natural protective mechanisms of plants against diseases, that lead to increasing fungicide activity of a chemical pesticide. Therefore, use of chemical fungicides mixed with Albit makes possible application of the lowest recommended fungicide rates, or even using the partial (halved) dose of fungicide with complete preservation of the plant protective effect.

For example, it is demonstrated high efficiency of spring barley presowing treatment with combination of Albit and decreased dose of flutriafol/thiabendazol based fungicide. Treatment with such combination provided considerable acceleration of plant growth and 28.9% yield increase over untreated control (in variant with full dose of fungicide yield increase was just 17.1%), and total suppression of root rots.

Yield increase of different agricultural crops, under the influence of Albit (centners/ha over control, mean values of all field trials). Crops are listed in alphabetical order.
