PRO-MIX YP BIOFUNGICIDE
YP - young plant production
PRO-MIX YP BIOFUNGICIDE* is a specialized formulation for young plant production that is ideal for vacuum-formed or paper cells and other transplanting machines. Whether for cuttings, seeds or plugs, in medium to large size cells, PRO-MIX YP BIOFUNGICIDE* provides a root zone environment which supports healthy and strong early growth. Its precise blend composed of fibrous blond sphagnum peat moss, coir (horticultural grade) and horticultural perlite provides resistance to compaction, yet it holds together adequately to maintain a sturdy fiber pot.

Advice from our specialist
For 'Young Plant' production, growers require a growing medium that is free of sticks and roots for automated filling of paper and fiber cells. The growing medium must be clean and free flowing to not clog machinery, but must provide good structure to encourage root development. PRO-MIX YP has been specifically formulated for this application.
Our popular BIOFUNGICIDE* bacterium for the suppression of root diseases is now incorporated into PRO-MIX YP BIOFUNGICIDE*.
Horticulture Specialist Troy Buechel talks about the sphagnum peat moss ingredient used in our PRO-MIX professional growing media and its benefits for your crops.
SPHAGNUM PEAT MOSS (45-55%)
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.
COIR - HORTICULTURAL GRADE
Coir is a natural product which comes from the exterior envelop of an aged coco fruit. We have carefully selected a material providing the 3 important following qualities for a high-quality professional growing medium:
- Physical (particles type and size)
- Chemical (washed material with a very low salinity level)
- Microbiological (exempt from any pathogens)
Perlite is an alumino-silicate ore of volcanic origin. The raw ore is crushed, graded and screened in various particle sizes. Perlite has a high total-porosity and improves drainage and air porosity.
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.
