With fumigants being aggressively restricted by environmental advocacy groups and rapidly growing resistance to some traditional chemistries, growers are increasingly concerned about future options for treating their soil. BioSafe Systems, a family-owned company specializing in sustainable Crop Protection Solutions, has invested significant resources into pioneering an advanced new soil treatment program encompassing it’s patented Peroxyacetic Acid technology called TerraClean 5.0 with a new soil microbial inoculant called TerraGrow. BioSafe’s Simply Sustainable Soils program offers growers two unique options in addressing soil health challenges:
1. TerraClean 5.0 Soil Treatment Fungicide utilizes the power of Peroxyacetic Acid Technology to eradicate both soil-borne and water-mold pathogens throughout the soil profile. Chemigated directly drip irrigation or microjets, TerraClean moves through the soil profile attacking and oxidizing pathogens such as pythium, phytophthora and fusarium.
2. TerraGrow Soil Microbial Inoculant is an advanced seven-strain package formulated to rapidly establish strong beneficial microbes to the root structure and soil profile. TerraGrow’s package contains five strains of bacillus and two strains of trichoderma that were selected through an extensive research process. Coupled with the advanced microbial package, TerraGrow also contains a concentrated blend of humic, fulvic and amino acids that are critical to healthy soil and plant structure.
While TerraClean 5.0 Soil Treatment provides rapid destruction of detrimental soil-borne pathogens such as pythium and phytophthora, TerraGrow will improve soil characteristics and plant stress tolerance for a wide variety of row crops, fruits and vegetables. It will restore and increase soil health and tilth, making it exceptional for young plants, which will respond quickly by establishing a strong and vigorous root system. TerraGrow can be applied through your drip irrigation system to reduce transplant shock and improve nutrient availability.
Ensuring your crop starts strong and stays healthy is our goal and BioSafe’s Sustainable Soils Program is a critical first step in addressing soil health and controlling soil borne pathogens.
