Active ingredients work together to enhance plant performance, quality and yield. 

Insect suppression claims

PRO-MIX BIOFUNGICIDE + MYCORRHIZAE offers growers the benefits of plant protection from root diseases caused by specific root pathogens, plant growth enhancement from MYCORRHIZAE and insect suppression – recently approved by the EPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) - aimed at fungus gnats and thrips. All of these benefits are exclusive to PRO-MIX BIOFUNGICIDE + MYCORRHIZAE growing media products. 

Through years of research on active ingredients, Premier Tech has developed products with an optimal combination of BIOFUNGICIDE (Bacillus pumilus) and MYCORRHIZAE (Glomus intraradices). PRO-MIX BIOFUNGICIDE + MYCORRHIZAE is a line of growing media products that includes active ingredients protecting plant roots from harmful pathogens and enhance plant growth. Basically, the bacillus is a natural bacterium that suppresses the pathogens Fusarium, Pythium and Rhizoctonia that cause plant root diseases, crown rot, and seedling rot diseases.

Researches over many years

A series of research experiments conducted over many years included several short-term bedding crops and long-term ornamental crops (cyclamen, poinsettia). Research results indicated that PRO-MIX BIOFUNGICIDE + MYCORRHIZAE suppresses both insect pests, fungus gnats and thrips, to an average level of 30% and 22% respectively during the whole crop growing period. We also observed a reduction of fungus gnat infestation that could reach up to 67%, for a specific time during plant culture. By reducing the fungal food sources of certain root zone dwelling insects with Bacillus pumilus bacteria, there is an indirect suppressive effect on insect populations.


Exclusive to US, PRO-MIX® BIOFUNGICIDETM+ MYCORRHIZAETM, ENHANCE plant growth with MYCORRHIZAETM, PROTECT against rootdiseases caused by specifc root pathogens, and also SUPPRESS fungus gnats and thrips. (EPA Reg #: 74267-4) Product availability may vary depending on the US region.
