Trianum-G grows quickly on arable farms and open-field vegetable cultivation.
More and more farmers and open-field vegetable growers in the Netherlands are using our biological fungicide Trianum-G. Our product is an attractive alternative to chemical crop protection in more and more crops.
‘In a number of outside crops we see positive results when using Trianum-G. That's why more and more farmers are using it,’ says agriculture consultant Frank Druyff.
Trianum is based on the fungus Trichoderma harzianum, strain T22. While the plant protection product fights soil-borne pathogens like Pythium spp, Fusarium spp, and Rhizoctonia spp, it also increases the plant's resistance to stress caused by disease and suboptimal conditions in nutrition, water, and climate. Trianum also stimulates nutrient absorption, which boosts the development of the root system and above-ground parts of the plant. The Trichoderma fungus forms a mycelium growth along the roots of the crop, blocking attacks of pathogens and depriving them of their food source. The fungus can also damage the cell walls of pathogens, causing them to die.
Trianum's strong effects
‘Problems with soil-based fungi are still on the rise in arable farming and open-field cultivation. That's why it's good that the granulate version of Trianum-G is authorized in more and more crops here in the Netherlands’ says Frank Druyff. Examples of these crops include spinach (Pythium) and lettuce (Fusarium). Beans also benefit from a treatment with Trianum-G. ‘We have seen a positive effect on the uniformity of the crops, on legume setting, and with early flowering,’ continues Frank Druyff. Trianum-G promotes plant numbers and a uniform emergence in the seed stock for onion sets and spinach seeds. Potato and onion growers in Spain and Italy report good results from using Trianum to fight Rhizoctonia and Fusarium. More and more farmers and open-field vegetable growers are using our biological fungicide Trianum-G. Our product is an attractive alternative to chemical crop protection in more and more crops. ‘Trianum is developing rapidly,’ adds Frank Druyff.
Trianum-G is also used to protect red beets and parsnips, and it has achieved very strong results in carrots. ‘Emergence is better, the plant numbers are higher per metre, there is less loss, and the crop is more uniform. You can see the smaller plants benefitting as well,’ adds Frank Druyff.
