Metcalf Gauntlet is applied to soil or growing media where it will colonise the root zone to create a healthy growing environment for onion, garlic and other plants. It contains trichoderma which are beneficial saprophytic fungi that feed on sugars excreted by plant roots as well as dead plant material. Established colonies can help create a growing environment less favourable to soil borne pathogens.
