Additional Information

Don't Let Soil-Borne Diseases Ruin Your Vegetable Crop

  • Protects plants from damping off disease
  • Defends tomatoes, squash, melons and more

Harmful soil fungi like pythium and fusarium cause root diseases that can devastate the most promising plants. Our all-organic Root Shield forms a defensive barrier right from the start. This university-tested beneficial fungus forms a symbiotic bond with plant roots, protecting them from soil pathogens all season long. Add it to potting soil or mix with water to use as a drench.

Product Details

  • Three tablespoons mixed with 1 gallon of water protects 25 feet of garden row (approx. 100 sq. ft.)
  • Active ingredient: Beneficial fungus (Trichoderma harzianum Rifai strain KRL-AG2 1.15%)

        Comments about Root Shield, 4 Oz.:

        I have found since using this product the past 2-3 years that I have had a reduction in the number of tomato plants that have had fusarium wilt, which is soilborne and over-winters. I add it to the plant-hole before putting in the transplant. I recognize that perhaps the beneficial results are coincidental, and a big factor might be that I've learned over 30 years of growing tomatoes, but since it's no big deal to use, I will keep on using it. Only negative is that the package has a one-year expiration.

          After several years of watching my ripening tomatoes succumb to blight, I started using this product. It is very effective. Follow the directions!

                This product is very easy to prepare & use. I mixed it one gallon at a time in a clean watering can & drenched the soil where I wanted to plant pole bean seeds. Previous seedings had resulted in poor germination or seedlings that sickened & died soon after germinating. Honestly, I can't think of a downside.
