- Effective against the following fungal pathogens of root diseases of different plants

 

Fungal Pathogens of Plant Disease:

  • Fusarium spp.
  • Pythium spp.
  • Rhizoctonia spp.
  • Thielaviopsis spp.
+ Key factors for mode of action of RootShield® WP against root diseases of different plants
  • RootShield® WP act as a preventative biological fungicide and protects the plants from pathogenic fungi that are responsible for causing root diseases to different crops grown in organic home gardens, fields, greenhouses, nurseries or landscapes.
  • When the RootShield® Wettable Powder containing Trichoderma harzianum strain T-22 is mixed in water and then drench-applied in the fields, greenhouse pots or nurseries, its spores in the water suspension will come in contact with the roots in the soil.
  • As soon as spores of T-22 strain come in contact with the growing roots of healthy plants, they will start growing on the outer surface of the roots and quickly cover the entire root system without entering into the roots.
  • As name implies (RootShield®), the outer cover formed by Trichoderma harzianum strain T-22 on the surface of roots serves as shield that blocks the entry/ infection of disease causing pathogenic fungi into the roots and thus preventing the incidence of disease and keeping plants healthy.
  • In addition, upon contact with pathogenic fungi, T-22 strain will release enzymes that generally dissolve cell wall of many disease causing pathogenic fungi and kill them before they can infect and cause root diseases.
+ Rates of application of RootShield® WP in the greenhouses, fields, gardens and nurseries?

The optimum concentrations of RootShield® WP in spay solution for the effective control of different diseases is 1-2 tbsps/5 gallons of water or 4-5 oz/100 gallons of water.

One application of RootShield® WP can protect crop from disease causing fungal pathogens for 12 weeks

  • Apply 100 gallons of RootShield® WP suspension for optimum coverage of 800 sq.ft. of surface area of trays/flats/pots that are less than 4-inches deep.
  • Apply 100 gallons of RootShield® WP suspension for optimum coverage of 400 sq. ft. of surface area of beds or pots that are more than 4-inches deep.
  • Apply approximately 1 cup (8 fl. oz. of solution) of RootShield® WP suspension/6-inch pot.
