Rhizo Power — Nadicom GmbH — Stand: L11
Rhizo Power — Irish soil bacteria bringing life back to Irish soil — is a probiotic for soil. Nadicom GmbH, has developed its innovative bio-fertiliser (IOA Certified) rhizo power Increased Crop and High Bloom, which act as probiotics, applied as a tonic to the soil, and are perfectly adapted for use in Ireland as it contains only natural bacteria, isolated from a wide variety of Irish soils. Rhizo Power Increased Crop and High Bloom work by producing phyto-hormones, anti-fungal agents and metabolites which promote the growth of the roots and then the growth of the plant.
Rhizo Power resolves the age old problem of over-cultivated, tired, lifeless soil. Pesticide usage in Ireland is under major change due to tightening European restrictions on availability and application. Progressive growers, amenities providers and farmers are aware of these changes and are searching for an alternative. Nadicom GmbH has found the answer in rhizo power.
Vegetable growers have trialled Rhizo Power in Ireland and have seen higher yields, ability to tolerate abiotic stresses, better root development, plant immunity to fungal diseases, greener leaves, and a greater storage ability after picking.
