PRO-MIX® PGX BIOFUNGICIDE™*

ProMix_MontageVignette_BioFunGen.png

PRO-MIX® PGX BIOFUNGICIDE™ is a plug and germination peat-based growing medium specially made to work with plug systems and automated seedling production that has been enriched with a biofungicide (Bacillus Subtilis) that prevents root diseases. These bacteria colonize developing root systems, and suppress disease-causing organisms, such as Pythium, Fusarium and Rhizoctonia, which attack root systems. The bacteria also act as a biostimulant developing with the growing root system. A vigorous root system is then established, resulting in more uniform plant stands after transplanting in the field and in greater crop yields.
