Unbalanced soil microbiology can lead to disease in plants. In healthy soils, disease-causing fungi and bacteria are suppressed by other soil microbes.
To give plants a better chance to withstand disease pressure the soil biology needs to be brought back into balance.
Terracin contains a bacteria that produces antimicrobial compounds which, when introduced to the soil, disrupts the existing soil biology. After applying Terracin, Mycorrcin is used to stimulate the beneficial bacteria in the soil to recreate the balance found in healthy soil.
By inoculating the soil with beneficial and protective microbes early in the season, fungal diseases can be resisted.
Terracin has two modes of action:
- The microbe Bacillus amyloliquefaciens BS 1b which produces a wide range of antimicrobial compounds
- Fermentation extracts and other bioactive nutrients that disrupt the soil microbiology to a better state.
Apply Terracin in winter or prior to planting when disruption of the soil microbiology will have minimal impact on plant growth.
Use Terracin to address soil microbial imbalances.
Terracin is compatible with many commonly used herbicides, liquid fertilisers, fungicides and insecticides allowing it to be co-applied with these products.
