Trichoderma product available
18 September 2014

As advised in the KVH Bulletin (15 May) Lincoln University is manufacturing a prototype trichoderma product called Trimix 1. Trichoderma are fungi present in soils, and some strains are able to colonise the root system of plants resulting in beneficial effects to the plant.

Trimix 1 is available once again to growers for use as a plant health enhancer (bio-fertiliser) from Lincoln University.They also recently received BioGro approval for TriMix-1 so it can now be used without restriction by organic growers.

While there is experimental evidence that the TriMix 1 can improve plant growth, Lincoln and/or KVH and Zespri cannot promote the product for Psa-V control as it does not have ACVM label claim from the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).

Growers interested in using the product as a plant health enhancer (bio-fertiliser) can click here to email Lincoln University.
