How it works
Bio Root Care
Bio Root Care is applied as a soil application, seed or seedling treatment which can be formulated to offer a tailor-made blend of naturally occurring microbes which colonize the root zone, secreting secondary metabolites, targeting pathogens and suppressing growth in various pathogenic bacteria, fungi and nematodes.
Bio Foliar Care
Bio Foliar Care contains a number of species of entomopathogenic bacteria and fungi. It comes in the form of a liquid spray or powdered mix and when applied, this made-to-measure solution will reduce pest numbers rapidly either by ingestion by target insects or attachment and subsequent penetration of the exoskeleton, restricting the hosts physiological functions leading to reductions in problems associated with air-borne pests.
Unlike chemical fertilizers, Tetra’s range of Bio Nutrients exploit the natural symbiotic relationships between plants and microbes. These organic products can be administered separately or as a mixture, made up of naturally occurring microbes including nitrogen fixers, phosphate solubilizers, potash mobilizers and Vesicular Arbuscular Mychorrhizae (VAM). The network of mycorrhizal fungal filaments establish simultaneously inside the roots and the surrounding rhizosphere to which the root system has access. This leads to more efficient absorption of water and minerals by plant roots resulting in a better nutritive equilibrium. The outcome is an increase in plant resistance to environmental stresses such as drought, chilling and the detrimental effects of some root pathogens.
