RhizoVital FZB42

RhizoVital FZB42 contains a highly concentrated fermentation liquid of a specially isolated strain of beneficial soil bacteria called Bacillus velezensis Isolate FZB42. FZB42 was selected from hundreds of soil isolates for its ability to colonise around seeds and at the rhizosphere (root zone) of key horticultural crops where it supports successful seed germination and growth and development of a healthy and resilient root system.

25 billion spores/mL Bacillus velezensis Strain FZB42

RhizoVital FZB42 works to stimulate plant growth and improve the vitality of plants, especially for use in crops, turf and seeds. It is characterised by a long shelf life, miscibility with other products and a wide range of uses such as dipping, pouring, spraying or in hydroponics. The Bacillus velezensis bacteria colonises the root system and forms a healthy microbiome around the roots making it an unfavourable environment for soil pathogens. The metabolites from FZB42 stimulate the root system helping the absorption of essential nutrients like manganese, zinc and phosphate to create stronger plants and healthier yields.
