RootShield®PLUS+ WP (Wettable Powder or dissolvable powder) naturally protects plants from soil-borne diseases such as Phytophthora,Pythium, Rhizoctonia, and Fusarium as well as other plant diseases. Easy to mix into media, RootShieldPLUS+now contains two active ingredients, Trichoderma harzianum Rifai strain T-22 and Trichoderma virens strain G-41. When applied, these microbes colonize plant roots and protect from damping off caused by common soil pathogens. RootShieldPLUS+also produces stronger root systems that have greater soil exploration and moisture uptake, resulting in better plant quality and marketability. RootShieldPLUS+is compatible with many commonly used fungicides, fertilizers, insecticides, and herbicides. It is an excellent tool for fungicide reduction and resistance management.
