The advantages of Trianum

The Trichoderma harzianum T-22 fungus in Trianum has many positive characteristics that are beneficial for growers, as it reduces the levels of disease, improves growth, and results in a stronger and more resilient crop. And which grower wouldn't want that?

The most significant advantages of Trianum in a nutshell: 

  • The Trianum Trichoderma fungi compete with pathogenic fungi. The principle is very simple: the space that Trichoderma takes up on the roots is no longer available for pathogens and neither are the exudates around the roots, which significantly reduces the ability of pathogens to develop or even survive.
  • Trianum Trichoderma fungi are true parasites, and they use pathogens as a source of food. 
  • As Trichoderma harzianum T-22 grows, it produces substances (enzymes) that break down the cell walls of pathogens, inhibiting their development.
  • Trianum produces antifungal substances. This makes it difficult for harmful fungi to develop. 
  • When the Trichoderma harzianum T-22 fungi grow on the roots, they trigger the plant to activate its defense mechanism against pathogens. The plant goes into defense mode, increasing its resilience.
  • Trianum ensures that nutrients become more easily available for the crop.
  • A symbiotic balance is created between Trichoderma harzianum T-22 and the plant. The plant roots provide nutrients to this Trichoderma fungus, returning other nutrients and protection to the plant. Both benefit from this relationship and keep each other healthy and strong. 
  • Crops treated with Trianum are more resilient to stressful situations, such as extreme drought. It is therefore also possible to use this product preventatively.
