Organic Pest and Disease Controls

Rootshield Plus+

The next generation of Plant Protection

This new formulation of ROOTSHIELD contains two active ingredients-the patented Trichoderma harzianum strain T-22, and Trichoderma virens G-41. These two strains are 100% compatible with Mycorrhizae. ROOTSHIELD PLUS+ provides 3-months of preventative control of major root diseases such as Pythium, Fusarium, Phytophthora, Rhizoctonia, Thielaviopsis, and Cylindrocladium, with improved suppression of the aggressive hot season Pythium.

When ROOTSHIELD PLUS+ is mixed with water at 6-ounces per 100-gallons of water over 150-billion spores are applied in one application. The spores germinate in 16 to 24 hours. As the Mycelium emerges from the spore it immediately starts coiling around the plants roots and any plant pathogen propagules present. After 24-hours ROOTSHIELD PLUS+ cannot be leached from the soil.
