Wallace Organic Wonder, Root Beneficial Microbes New 1 pound size!
ROOT is a fully soluble biological inoculant to promote beneficial bacterial colonization at the roots. Containing eight different beneficial microbes, these natural bacteria convert nitrogen and phosphorus to simpler forms that can be more easily taken in and used by plants. ROOT enhances root growth, development and promotes plant health by improving soil fertility and plant nutrition. Active Ingredient * Formononetin is a naturally-occurring compound found in plant roots, which stimulates the natural growth of vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizae, enchancing the growth of plants! Bottom line Formononetin is a food source for mycorrhizae!
WHAT IS IN ROOT AND HOW DOES IT WORK? ROOT is comprised of beneficial bacteria and formononetin that act in a variety of ways. » These bacteria help to break down the larger nutrient molecules in the soil, making uptake easier for the plant’s root system. » Other beneficial bacteria solubilize otherwise insoluble phosphorous increasing the availability of this essential macronutrient. A special class of bacteria in ROOT absorbs nitrogen from the air in the soil and makes it available to the plant’s root system. Trichoderma, an important ingredient in ROOT, is a fungal spore that acts like a bacteria and defends the plant’s root system from attack by pathogens in the soil. The Myconate® (formononetin) technology, exclusive to Rx Green Solutions, in ROOT is a signaling molecule that activates bacteria colonization on the plants root as well as stimulates the growth of any mycorrhizal fungi present in the soil.
CAN ROOT BE HARMFUL TO HUMANS SINCE IT HAS BACTERIA IN THE PRODUCT? No, the bacteria in ROOT are not harmful to humans even with skin contact. Our digestive system is actually lined with bacteria, which aids in the digestion of food, a very similar function of the bacteria in our ROOT product.
CAN ROOT BE OVER-APPLIED AND CAUSE DAMAGE TO MY GARDEN? It is best to apply ROOT according to the label rates; however, even significantly over-applying ROOT will not cause damage to your plants. It is microorganism-based, so only those organisms that receive enough food will survive, and the rest will simply die off. DO I NEED TO PH MY WATER BEFORE APPLYING ROOT? While pH adjustment is not required by our ROOT product, you will be applying a quantity of water to your plant’s root system, and you may feel more comfortable adjusting the water for that reason.
WHY IS IT FOAMING? The bacteria activates and multiplies when mixed in water, resulting in foam.
CAN I USE THIS AS A FOLIAR? No. The beneficial microbes are effective at the root zone, breaking down nutrients into more available forms.
WHAT IS FORMONONETIN? Formononetin is naturally occurring—originally isolated and identified from phosphorus-deficient clover roots and proven to stimulate microbial activities.
CAN I USE ROOT IN MY RECIRCULATING SYSTEM? We do not recommend ROOT for use in a recirculating system. It can cause bacteria build up and foaming, and will be difficult to clean.
