PROTECT

A BIOLOGICAL APPROACH views nature as being brilliantly creative and diverse, with soil (a living ecosystem) being integrally interconnected with roots and plant health. The Biological approach is based on the natural prey and predator cycle occuring in ecosystems all around us. 

  1. These active ingrediants are alive. Always check product expiry date and keep cool.
  2. Less is more. 1 gram of “active ingredient” contains billions of spores. For the best results follow mixing and application instructions carefully.
  3. No “instant” knock down. Once inoculated, spores need time to germinate & penetrate. Insects/larvae should stop feeding within 24-48 hours, death occurs within a few days. Repeat applications as suggested.

EcoBuz Protect range has no negative effects on your garden.

FUNGAL INOCULANT

 

A beneficial fungi for enhanced root growth and the supression of listed root diseases.

RootPro is aggressive and fast growing. It parasitises and destroys soil pathogens, while enhancing root growth through its symbiotic realtionship with plant root systems.

Mix sachet contents with a samll amout of water to form a thin paste before mixing into 1L of water. Apply as a drench

THE SCIENCE BEHIND ROOT PRO

ROOT PRO is a Fungal Inoculant

ROOT PRO is aggressive and fast growing. It parasitizes and destroys soil pathogens. The fungi grows and has a symbiotic relationship with plant roots, out competes other microbes for nutrients and space, outcompeting other microbes for space and nutrients.

ROOT PRO helps to activate the plants natural defence mechanisms ie; Induced Systemic Resistance (ISR) is similar to a vaccination – boosting the plants ability to resist and fight off disease.

 

Directions for use – ROOT PRO

  • Mix sachet contents with a small amount of water to form a thin paste
  • Now mix the paste into 5L water
  • Apply as drench

 

ROOT PRO is a living organism, do not leave mixture in sun and use within 6 hours of mixing

PREVENTATIVE BIOFUNGICIDE

 

Biofungicide (beneficial bacteria) for the suppression of listed diseases

Disease Pro colonises plant surfaces and produces substances that inhibit the growth of fungal diseases.

Dilute sachet into 1L water, apply as a full cover spray, contact with diseases is important. Apply when disease is first noticed, repeat after 7 days – 14 days. Minimum of 3 applications.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND DISEASE PRO

DISEASE PRO is a Preventative Biofungicide

For the suppression of plant diseases, DISEASE PRO is capable of producing a number of substances (antimicrobial metabolites) that inhibit the growth of fungi. DISEASE PRO colonizes plant surfaces, occupying space and utilising available nutrients – outcompeting pathogens and making it difficult for them to get established.
