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.

Rootsheild is a good product.
By garden lover
Once in a great while your garden can use extra help.
from Mid-Hudson Valley, NY
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.

I've been looking for a product like this for a long time.

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.
I know how important the ecosystem of the soil is. I have used similar products with great results and I am very much looking forward to treating my plants with this
Saved my cucumber
I have never been able to grow cucumbers in my poor soil. This season I tried again with two transplants. One died and the other was looking like it wanted to. I drenched the soil around the small, limp, cucumber plant with Root Shield and a week later it has healthy new growth and flowers.
