TerrAktiv® PLUS – Microbially vitalised substrates for healthy plants
Growers rely on effective suppression of plant diseases. However, legal requirements allow increasingly little scope for the use of fungicides. This means that plant diseases such as Pythium, Phytophthora and Fusarium may occur again in greater numbers. The addition of biostimulants can have a suppressive effect in substrates and prevent crop diseases.
TerrAktiv® PLUS – successful trials about suppressive effects against crop diseases
Klasmann-Deilmann has conducted several series of scientific trials to investigate, among others, the ability of various bacteria and fungi to suppress crop diseases. The new compost product TerrAktiv® PLUS was tested in comparison with common biostimulants. All trial results have confirmed the highest suppressive effect of TerrAktiv® PLUS. A proportion of 5–10 % by volume in the standard substrate composition is sufficient to achieve excellent results.
TerrAktiv® PLUS – ideal for pot plants, shrubs and trees
The perfect basis: TerrAktiv® green compost
