Biostimulator (Trichoderma ) producten
Well-considered work on sustainable agriculture under the guidance of an Orgapower research program, led to the development and production of Orgapower compost with Bio-stimulator. We have succeeded in achieving positive soil fungal derivatives that grow at high concentrations. The high concentration of microorganisms in Orgapower’s Bio-stimulator reassemble some of the naturally produced soil fungi, such as those that derive from some mixtures of Trichoderma Harzianum, derivate T22. Trichoderma Harzianum, derivate T-22, is the first derivate registered and allowed as a plant enhancer in the Netherlands by The Board for the Authorization of Plant Protection Products and Biocides (CTGB). Orgapower has entered into a licensing agreement with Koppert Biological Systems B.V., in Berkel en Rodenrijs, in order to mix the Trichoderma Harzianum, derivate T-22, with the Bio-stimulator compost of Orgapower. This symbiotic fungus/plant association is known as Mycorrhiza. With the use of this product the hyphae forms a closely woven mass around the rootlets so the mold stimulates the uptake of minerals and water by the roots of the plant. The fungus/plant association promotes the growth and development of the plant. In addition, the woven mass around the rootlets leaves less space in the soil for the presence of possible harmful microorganisms, such as for example, Pythium, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, Sclerotinia, Cylindrocladium, and Verticillium.
Open field: Normally the Bio-stimulator compost is scattered 1 to 2 m3 per cm topsoil depth. For example, to inoculate a 20 cm thick topsoil layer it is necessary to add 20-40 m3 per hectare.
Potting Soil: First application 2% volume of the essential Bio-stimulator Mix followed by the application of 1%. Larger pot sizes also mix 1% volume. Another option is sprinkling and dispersion through light irrigation.
Numerous independent studies reveal a significant disease suppressive effect on bioassay-level and at several block field test (click the right button at the top PRACTICAL EXPERIENCES for all studies). The DLV experiments also show that Bio-stimulators also have suppressing effects on root-lesion nematodes.
