SR1 Trees contains soil dwelling Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and plant derived biostimulants that act to increase the effective root area of treated crops. 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.

SR1 offers growers the ability to harness natural microorganisms to achieve yield benefits as well as improved plant and soil health. Applied at time of planting SR1 granular mycorrhizal fungi can be placed precisely in the seed/root zone and once germinated will associate with compatible crops within as little as two weeks.
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.
Rootballed and containerised:
1. Sprinkle the granules evenly, at the recommended dosage, directly into the prepared planting hole or pit.
2. Place the plant directly onto the granules so that the rootzone comes into contact with the granules.
For larger plants over 30L or 12-14 girth:
Apply during backfill against the side wall of the root zone to ensure contacts with feeder roots.
Mix 2 sachets with 60-80L of water.
The desired consistency will depend on the root density of the plant species used. The appearance of the solution, when mixed, should be similar to wallpaper paste. For more dense or fibrous roots, the solution should be thinner.
Add the rootgrow™ granules when the desired consistency is met and stir well.
We recommend dipping 25 whips per dip to ensure even coverage.
Use mixed gel dip within 2 days and do not allow to freeze.
