Crop production is compromised by stress. Unfavourable weather conditions, pests and diseases, soil type and fertility as well as general agronomic practices can all deplete cropping potential.
Healthy and balanced growth is essential to making plants more resistant to stress, thereby optimising yield and quality.
Roots serve as the ‘brains’ of the plants operation, controlling both nutrient uptake and hormonal balance. Ensuring hormone balance is critical to both healthy growth and the crop’s ability to withstand stress and achieve higher yields.
Every 7-14 days the root cap cells are shed, and must be replaced by new cells. Without this replacement process, there will be fewer roots and root tips to absorb essential nutrients, synthesise plant hormones and control plant growth. Rootfeed can be the answer to optimising and maintaining vigorous new root growth and subsequently a strong, healthy crop.
Stoller’s RootFeed ensures your crop maintains continuous root growth and replacement of root caps throughout the growing season and post-harvest period. RootFeed can help plants develop a stronger root system leading to a greater tolerance to stress as well as improved plant balance and health.
