SR1: Cereals

£50.00 + VAT

SR1 Cereals contains soil dwelling Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and plant derived biostimulants that act to increase the effective root area of treated corps. Plants efficiency is enhanced through increased nutrient and water uptake. Mycorrhizal Fungi improve natural plant defences and develop a framework for other beneficial soil microbes.

  • Description

    SR1 offers growers of cereal and field vegetable crops the ability to harness natural microorganisms to achieve yield benefits as well as improved plant and soil health. Applied using a granular applicator (e.g. Stocks AG or Techneat) or as a seed blend, PlantWorks’ SR1 granular mycorrhizal fungi can be placed precisely in the seed zone and once germinated will associate with compatible crops within as little as two weeks. The added biostimulant contains molasses and plant derived amino acids to support mycorrhizal development and further enhance benefits for treated crops.

    The product is delivered in two specific mixes. When ordering please specify whether you wish to be supplied SR1 for Vegetables and Pulses or SR1 for Cereals.

    Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) associate with 90% of all crop plants. By growing into the root, as well as accessing large areas of soil around the plant, these remarkable fungi effectively increase the uptake surface area of plant roots up to 700 times. Additionally plant defence mechanisms are improved by the partnership. Put simply, plants colonised by AMF are healthier and significantly more efficient at collecting water and nutrients from the soil.
