Biostimulant

Use for

Use for

Vidi Fortum contains an extract that resembles the composition of root exudates and will significantly improve crop performance and health. Application substantially enhances soil microbial activity and function. It is specifically focused on creating and maintaining a positive rhizosphere which directly leads to improved root growth, nutrient uptake and above-ground vegetative growth with higher levels of chlorophyll.

When to use Vidi Fortum?

  • Cell division and the formation of proteins, carbohydrates and chlorophyll
  • Root growth and branching
  • Nutrient uptake through the optimizing exudate and microbial levels
  • Increasing soil microbial biomass and beneficial diversity
  • Vegetative steering

How it works

How it works

How does Vidi Fortum work?

During periods of an increased demand for assimilates or in stressful conditions, the roots may experience an exudate deficiency in all growing media and soil grown crops. This deficit leads to physiological and nutritional disorders, as well as a greater susceptibility to stress and pathogens, irrespective of inputs. Vidi Fortum optimizes the survival and function of the soil microbial biomass around the plant roots by providing essential nutrients to these microbes. The absorption of essential elements increases significantly when the root environment improves, this results in improved plant growth and strength.

As the relationship between the plant and the growing media improves, there is a positive chain effect, leading to cell division, increased populations of disease suppressing substances, the formation of proteins, carbohydrates and chlorophyll.

It is an organic compound with targeted application to support the microbial processes around the roots. This strengthens the roots ability to function, making substances and disease-suppressing components available to the plant.
