Rootshield WP (Wettable Powder)  
Biological Fungicide for Nursery, Greenhouse and Vegetable Crops
 

Based on the highly-effective, patented, hybrid fungus Trichoderma harzianum, strain T-22, RootShield Granules and PlantShield HC (a wettable powder formulation), protects roots, stems and leaves from many pathogens. They block and actively attack pathogens by “eating” them; ensuring uninterrupted plant growth. RootShield Granules and PlantShield HC are preventative biofungicides and should be applied to “clean” plants. Diseased plants should be treated with a curative fungicide first, since the aggressively growing active ingredient (strain T-22) only grows on the outside and does not enter the plant tissue. RootShield Granules and PlantShield HC are compatible with fertilizers, algaecides, insecticides, disinfectants, miticides, herbicides, growth regulators, and nearly all fungicides.

Root Protection:

  • Grows on the roots “shielding” them against root damaging fungi
  • Releases enzymes that dissolve the cell wall of many fungal pathogens
  • Promotes a healthier root system
  • 0-hour REI;  OMRI Listed;
  • VeriFlora® approved input materials
  • Reduces or eliminates chemical fungicide applications
  • Grows between pH 4-8; at soil temperatures between 48 – 97 F
  • Costs less than 2¢ per 6-inch pot for a root protection program.

Two Formulations:
RootShield Granules – Incorporated into your growing medium, it grows on the plant’s root system and is compatible in all bark, coir, peat based and soil-less mixes and will protect plugs, cuttings, liners and all container plants.

PlantShield HC – This wettable powder can be drenched into the soil for root rot protection or applied as foliar spray to prevent Botrytis and mildews on ornamentals.
