CEASE has been assigned a BM 02 FRAC (Fungicide Resistance Action Committee) code. BM denotes Biological with Multiple Modes of action, while 02 is classified as Microbial (living microbes, extracts, or metabolites). Bacillus subtilis was reclassified from FRAC Code 44 to BM 02 in 2020.
It is safe to use with most BCAs/beneficial insects. Remove or close bumblebee hives before application.
Research trials and grower experience have shown CEASE to be safe on sensitive foliage and open blooms. If tank-mixed, testing must be carried out to prove whether the mix is as safe as CEASE alone.
The active ingredient in CEASE is Bacillus subtilis strain QST 713. Synonyms for Bacillus subtilis are Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, Bacillus subtilis var. amyloliquefaciens, and more recently, Bacillus velezensis. The interchangeable names are due to the evolving taxonomic classification.

CEASE is packaged in 1 gallon plastic jugs (4 per case) or 2.5 gallon plastic jugs (2 per case).
CEASE can be applied in greenhouse, ornamental field, interiorscape, residential/commercial landscape, and shade house environments, on a wide array of ornamentals, container grown trees, shrubs and cover grown vegetables.
CEASE is a preventative fungicide and does not provide any curative or eradicant control.
No. CEASE is a contact fungicide. Thorough spray coverage of foliage is essential to ensure CEASE is being applied to the entire plant canopy.
Due to CEASE’s multiple modes of action, resistance is not likely to develop. This makes it an excellent tank mix or rotational partner with other products, such as MilStop®, coppers, etc. BioWorks recommends that CEASE be used in combination and/or rotation with other products as part of an effective [...]
