Sunday, July 11  9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Description:  Learn about the benefits of the main biological inoculant products for use in nursery and greenhouse applications, including beneficial bacteria, mycorrhizal fungi, and other beneficial fungi. We will explain how these microbes interact with plants’ root systems and benefit plant development. We will go beyond the product labels to explain best application practices, as well as how to make the most of these technologies in real-life production protocols. This session will help growers understand the role of these microbes and their interactions with cultural management practices so they can make informed decisions about product choice and use to achieve maximum return on investment.

ProGibb® LV Plus T&O



Actinovate® biological fungicides suppress and control root rot, damping-off fungi, and foliar fungal pathogens. Available in Retail (Actinovate® Lawn & Garden) or Professional (Actinovate® SP) formulations, the active ingredient is a patented bacterium that grows around the root system (when soil-drenched) and foliage of the plant (when sprayed on) while using several novel modes of anti-fungal action to protect plants and lawns. In addition, when applied to the soil, Actinovate Biofungicides break down minerals and micronutrients, making them more available to plants, resulting in increased size and vitality. Plants and turf treated with Actinovate as a soil drench will become hardier, more vigorous, and will have a robust and protected root system.
