RootShield WP

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

RootShield® WP is a new and improved formulation of the highly effective biological fungicide PlantShield® HC–with a water soluble carrier.  RootShield WP protects roots from the most common root diseases affecting greenhouse, nursery and vegetable crops.  The active ingredient, Trichoderma harzianum strain T-22 prevents Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Fusarium, Cylindrocladium and Thielaviopsis by blocking and actively attacking pathogens–”eating” them before they reach the root system.

The new RootShield WP makes mixing easier, with its water soluble carrier and virtually clay-free formulation to eliminate clogging.  Additionally, it has a broader label to encompass even more crops, and is labeled for field chemigation.

RootShield WP has a 0-hour REI and can lower growers’ costs by eliminating or reducing the need for chemical root fungicides, and saving material and labor costs of repetitive drenching.  One application provides up to 12 weeks of protection and costs less than 1 to 2 cents per 6-inch pot.  RootShield WP can be used in rotation with insecticides, rooting compounds, growth regulators, fertilizers and most fungicides.  RootShield WP is an excellent choice for sustainable programs.

Note:  RootShield WP is in the state registration approval process.  Visit www.bioworksinc.com to see a map of the states that have approved RootShield WP.

Holistic, Integrated Approach To Pest Control Rooted In…

Greenhouse growers have been practicing integrated pest management for decades, but it’s becoming increasingly more important with the continued scrutiny of conventional pest control by a number of “regulators” — government, retail, and consumers. I just returned from Meister Media Worldwide’s Biocontrols USA 2016 Conference, in Monterey, CA, at the beginning of March this year, which served 450 attendees and 50 exhibiting supplier companies. It’s clear from the presentations and the growing attendance at this specialized event — now only in its second year — that use of biocontrols in IPM will continue to be adopted widely, as more growers get past their personal hurdles of doubt and intimidation, and embrace a new way to approach pest and disease control. Many growers think of using biocontrols as an all-or-nothing approach, but ultimately, IPM is about balance. Growers will need to continue to focus on IPM, integrating chemistry with biology, because […]
