Soil and root health are essential for the production of healthy, nutrient dense food. The resulting plants are stronger, exhibiting increased pest and disease resistance.
The Madumbi Root Health program combines increased growth promoting microbes with nutritional support to optimise root health and development, nutrient update and disease suppression. This holistic, integrated approach induces the plants inherent resistance mechanism – more commonly known as Induced Systemic Resistance (ISR)
Plant root health can be negatively affected by a range of soil pathogens including fungal pathogens such as Phytophthora, Rhizoctonia, Pythium, Fusarium, Sclerotinia, etc.
A compromised root system is less effective at taking up water and nutrients from the soil which ultimately has a negative impact on plant growth and yield.
In severe cases plants may die resulting in yield losses and more frequent replants (perennials) with associated costs and production reduced income.
