I haven't used the product, but I noticed the bacteria in it acts as a broad spectrum preventative bio-fungicide which means it will also kill beneficial fungi. I am just starting to learn a little about greenhouse production and am not qualified to comment on that type of application.

However, this product is also labeled for use as a soil drench in nurseries for
woody ornamentals and forest seedlings. A better strategy might be to out compete the pathogens by promoting the growth of beneficials as the seedlings will be better perpared to fend for themselves once transplanted.
