SR1 (Vegetables & Pulses, Cereals)

SR1 offers growers of cereal and field vegetable crops the ability to harness natural microorganisms to achieve yield benefits as well as improved plant and soil health. Applied using a granular applicator (e.g. Stocks AG or Techneat), PlantWorks’ SR1 granular mycorrhizal fungi can be placed precisely in the seed zone and once germinated will associate with compatible crops within as little as two weeks. The added biostimulant contains molasses and plant derived amino acids to support mycorrhizal development and further enhance benefits for treated crops.  Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) associate with 90% of all crop plants. By growing into the root, as well as accessing large areas of soil around the plant, these remarkable fungi effectively increase the uptake surface area of plant roots up to 700 times. Additionally plant defence mechanisms are improved by the partnership. Put simply, plants colonised by AMF are healthier and significantly more efficient at collecting water and nutrients from the soil.
