RootShield® Seed Treatment naturally protects seeds and plants from soil-borne diseases such as Phytophthora as well as PythiumRhizoctonia, and Fusarium as well as other plant diseases. RootShield Seed Treatment is a preventative biological fungicide for control of plant diseases. The active ingredient is a microbe, Trichoderma harzianum Rifai Strain T-22, which when applied to seeds, grows onto plant roots as they develop and provides protection against costly and destructive plant root pathogens. RootShield Seed Treatment can be used alone or in conjunction with certain chemical fungicides; consult the appropriate tank mix compatibility charts listed below.
