PRO-MIX PGX BIOFUNGICIDE
PGX – plug and germination
Balance and precision are essential in horticulture, even more so at the beginning of a crop. PRO-MIX PGX BIOFUNGICIDE is formulated with vermiculite for increased buffering capacity and nutrient retention at the early stages of plant growth. This carefully developed formulation optimizes plant growth by creating a root zone environment that is well adapted for plug production and seed germination applications.

Advice from our specialist
Premier Tech Horticulture offers two products: PRO-MIX FPX, which contains perlite for extra drainage, and PRO-MIX PGX, which contains vermiculite for more water retention. When using these products, remember to start fertilizing after the emergence of the first true leaves. For the best root development, cut back waterings once seedling roots go to the sides of the container. Allow the surface to dry down between waterings, which will encourage the development of an extensive, deep-rooted root system.
Vegetable and herbs have similar fertilization requirements to bedding plants early in their crop cycle. However, as vegetable and herb plants progress from vegetative growth into flowering and fruit production, fertility rates and ratios change for each crop.
Over the last several years there has been an increasing trend for “Young Plant” producers to move from seed germination to cutting propagation. One of the more popular methods for cutting production is the use of the Ellepot machine. Discover more about this process in the following article.
PRO-MIX® FPX and PRO-MIX® PGX are specialized Sphagnum peat-based media used for germinating and propagating ornamental plants and vegetables in small-plug trays and paper wrapped rooting cells.
SPHAGNUM PEAT MOSS (75-85%)
Canadian Sphagnum peat moss is a natural, organic matter that comes from a peat bog. This primary resource is carefully harvested by vacuum harvesters. Peat moss comes in various fibrosity and levels of decomposition. Once carefully graded, peat moss assures that qualities of each grade are optimized for based on grower and uses for a final product reaching high quality requirements.
Vermiculite is an expanded aluminum-iron, magnesium silicate mineral ore that is mined throughout the world. Vermiculite has a high total-porosity and has good nutrient-holding ability.
Used to adjust pH to optimum range. Also a source of Calcium and Magnesium.
A wetting agent is a substance that reduces the surface tension of water, allowing water to penetrate and uniformly wet growing media.
Biofungicide is a naturally occurring strain of bacteria called Bacillus subtilis (MBI 600). This bacterium enhances plant growth and combats harmful organisms such as Fusarium, Pythium and Rhizoctonia.
