Our Bio Fungicide for plants, in particular, contains the power of the fungus Trichoderma harzianum at a spore load of 2 x 106 CFU/GM; an ideal concentration to ensure that the spores can successfully germinate and actively seek damaging species of fungi that cause root rot, damping off and wilt diseases. The specific strain contained in this product is the result of the mixture of the most desirable traits of several naturally-occurring subspecies, here condensed for the ultimate ease of use and benefit of the grower. It is at the same time an inoculator of beneficial fungi and an organic fungicide, designed to have a long-lasting to permanent effect, if the conditions for the survival of the Trichoderma fungi are met.
Though a sustainable approach to agriculture implies cooperation with many organisms, increased biodiversity and the presence of a wide variety of fungi and bacteria, growing organically doesn’t have to mean accepting serious yield loses to fungal infections. Any organic grower has recurrently heard the supposed truth that organic production is always bound to have lower yields than traditional systems of production, and that the only solution to pest problems is to switch to traditional methods whenever things get tough for the crops. This is an approach that defeats the purpose of organic agriculture, because if organic growing cannot deal by itself with the ever-present problem of disease without chemical pesticides, it is not only not organic: it is not sustainable at all. Is this all there is to the issue, however? Does the organic gardener have no option but to see plants fall repeatedly under the aggression of fungal diseases, root knot nematodes and other pests of agricultural production, unable to do anything or otherwise forced to resort to non-organic methods? Insects are easy enough to control with other biological agents, but what about smaller, peskier, equally damaging plagues?
If anything, one of the solutions to this problem comes in the form of a different kind of fungal life – one that can benefit the plants at the same time that it outcompetes damaging species of fungi and nematodes. Trichorderma spp. strains, in particular, are mycorrhizal fungi that not only favour the absorption of plant food, but also serve as a protective barrier that aggressively attacks and absorbs other fungi. A basic premise of the systemic approach that animates organic agriculture is, after all, that there’s no need to destroy the current system if you can just tweak it to become functional. That’s exactly what our products here at GrowMate seek to do for our customers.
Adopt a preventive approach to the protection of your plants with the aid of our products, for healthier individuals, larger yields and a more balanced soil microbiota, where beneficial microorganisms (such as our mycorrhizal fungi) are present at all times, effectively blocking the appearance of colonies of harmful pathogens that are large enough to harm your crops. Take advantage as well of the non-toxic, non-GMO, naturally-sourced character of our protective products, which can be safely used around both children and pets without any risks.
