Streptomycin Sulfate

Streptomycin Sulfate is a bactericide that controls brown spot, common blight, and halo blight. Streptomycin sulfate prevents the bacteria from manufacturing the cell wall, so the bacteria dies. It is used to treat tuberculosis, and other bacteria. The recommended rate is 30,000 ppm (3%) solution of streptomycin sulfate 62.5%. Streptomycin sulfate is used to treat seed to help inactivate bacteria on the seed surface. This product cannot be used after planting.

Streptomycin sulfate is an antibiotic used in combination with other drugs to treat tuberculosis (TB). TB is a chronic bacterial infection. TB causes more deaths worldwide than any other infectious disease. TB is spread through the air and usually affects the lungs, although other organs are sometimes involved. Some 1.7 billion people - one-third of the world's population - are infected with the predominant TB organism, Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Most people infected with M. tuberculosis never develop active TB. However, in persons with weakened immune systems, especially those infected with the HIV virus, TB may overcome the bodyís defenses, multiply and cause active disease. While streptomycin is no longer considered a first line treatment for TB, some strains of multi-drug resistant TB (MDRTB) are susceptible to treatment
