Products like DYNROOT and DIP&ROOT contains high-purity active ingredients that will stimulate fast and prolific rooting of various types of plant cuttings. The product range consists of various formulations to be used on any type of plant cutting from soft wood to hard wood types.
DYNAROOT showed greater results compared to the top European product, during independent trials in the Netherlands. In recent tests on grapevine cuttings (pictured below) the superior performance of DYNAROOT was also confirmed by the ORO AGRI research division.
Uneven rooting of cuttings can produce weak plants that are difficult to manage and may cost growers a significant amount of additional labour or even crop loss. Similarly, delayed rooting or lack of rooting can extend the growth cycle of cuttings and will have a negative effect on nursery efficiency. The PBR Trading product range will induce faster rooting times, minimise delays in nursery practices, and create stronger and healthier plants for nursery customers.
