It is a microorganism of quick growth and proliferation, and it is better in the competition for nutrients and space than phytopathogen fungi, providing present biodiversity and future sustainability, with the same or higher efficiency than chemical therapics. Improving the contexture of the root, it facilitates the absorption of soil nutrients and provides greater resistance under stress situations.
It is a liquid product which has absolute sterilization guarantee. It is applied directly to seeds and is completely compatible with other products, even the ones having synthetic origin.
It is an organic-based formulation that protects seeds and strengthens the plant. And also it improves soil without causing damages to other plant or animal species.
When Trichoderma harzianum strains are applied to seeds, a fast growth is produced together with root development of treated seedlings, competing against phytopathogens fungi for nutrients and space at the level of rhizosphere.
The Trichodermafungi is developed around the pathogen and on its surface, which would allow it to penetrate inside by the action of lytic enzymes (chitinase and ß-1,3-glucanase) degrading its cell wall.
Finally, the controller fungus secretes antibiotic substances and metabolites that inhibit parasitic activity of pathogens, making the reproduction of the pathogen impossible.
Tests confirm it
Diseases related to fungi (mainly Fusarium graminerum, bipolaris, sorokiniana and Drechslera tritici-repentis) are sources of concern among farmers from different productive regions of the country.
Tests carried out reflect the excellent performance of Rizoderma offering better results against the check product in most tests and generating an increase in average yields of 190 Kg/ha.
In the comparative graph and table, the yield increase with the use of Rizoderma against the check plot is shown.
