Product Description

Fungal soilborne disease can stop seeds from germinating before they even start, but Root Guardian™ has your seedlings' back! Designed for application to seeds, plant roots and soil during planting, Root Guardian protects roots from fungal diseases for up to 3 months, and promotes bigger, faster growing and vigorous root systems. Plus, our bio-fungal formula releases compounds that make nutrients more readily available to plants! The active ingredient is a microbe, Trichoderma harzianum Strain T-22 (KRL-AG2), which, when applied to seeds, transplants, soil, or planting mixes, grows onto plant roots as they develop and provides protection against harmful plant root pathogens.

For seeds, mix 1-3 tablespoons per gallon of water to treat a 25' plant row. Drench the planting furrow before covering the seed with soil.

For transplants, mix 1-3 tablespoons per gallon of water and apply .5-1 cup per plant at transplanting.

For new and established beds, mix 1-3 tablespoons per gallon of water and apply at a rate of 1 gallon per 25 sq ft.

For container plants, mix .5-1 cup (4-8 oz) per 4-8"" container.
