Real Trichoderma (bio-fertiliser)

Trichoderma asperellum is a common beneficial fungus found in the soil. It can grow saprophytically on organic matter in the soil as well as on the roots of plants. It is capable of entering the plant either through a foliar spray or root application.

Eco-toxicological studies confirm that Real Trichoderma asperellum has no negative environmental, operator or consumer safety issues. It therefore has a zero Pre-Harvest-Interval and no pesticide residue issues.

Trichoderma asperellum produces natural substances which solubilises phosphates in the soil and makes them available to the plant. Real Trichoderma will increase root volume and promote the growth of plants.

Real Trichoderma asperellum, isolate TR900, is unique to Real IPM and is a most cost effective product because of its following useful attributes:

  • Considerable bio-fertiliser effects, promoting growth and branching of roots.
