For replanting owing to wood decay fungi, we recommend careful removal of most of the core of the old root system along with infected soil. As a precaution, we also recommend the use of Avengelus PRO products at least once or several times (depends on the infestation of the soil and the fungus, e. g. for Armillaria mellea we suggest a cure over several years), which are especially conditioned for individual cases of decay fungi. In this way, the growth of wood decay fungi is arrested, thus minimising new population outbreaks.
Reduce the risk of renewed infestation
Avengelus PRO products ensure that space and food is taken away from the wood decay fungi in the soil. The parasitism of wood decay fungi can be accelerated with Avengelus PRO, since these products contain Trichoderma harzianum, which is especially cultivated in the laboratory for the most common wood decay fungi.
Trichoderma harzianum triggers the production of messenger substances, such as jasmonic acid and salicylic acid. As a result, the newly planted tree is automatically on alert for pathogens and can effectively counter this.
Increase the diversity of soil biology
The more beneficial organisms, the better it is for soil health. In mixed cultivation, soil diversity is better. In monocultures or in urban areas, beneficial organisms should be brought in during planting to support the health and vitality of the tree. Following the example of mixed cultivation, beneficial organisms can support the tree during stressful times.
Contains fungal spores (Trichoderma harzianum CBS 140589) 1×108 (CFU per ml).
Application & Dosage:
Dry application for a long-term effect: Apply 2 ml granules per m² to the soil and irrigate well. For replantings, granules have to be in contact with the roots of the plant. Can be mixed with compost before planting (10 g per 10 L of compost).
Liquid application: Add 2 ml granules to 1 L of water. Soak for at least 30 min, stir well an apply with a watering can or squirting barrel 1 L per m² directly to the soil and/or spray directly onto the plant.
Particularly effective for application over 4 years with at least 4 doses per year in 4-week intervals. Safe for humans and animals when used properly.
Please note: Avoid mixing Avengelus PRO Gel with products that have a pH value below 4.5 and above 8. Do not mix with products containing bactericides, fungicides or phosphates.
Trichoderma harzianum grows fastest at temperatures between 20 °C and 25 °C. At lower or higher temperatures, growth inhibition occurs. Death of the active ingredient occurs at temperatures above 40 °C, due to irreversible heat-related damage. Cooler temperatures do not pose an existential problem, but growth is inhibited. Even temperatures below 0 °C or unfavourable conditions, such as drought pose no problem for Trichoderma harzianum due to the formation of chlamydospores. These spores are formed when Trichoderma harzianum senses that danger is imminent. Chlamydospores are particularly resistant and ensure the survival of Trichoderma harzianum.
Avengelus PRO granules should be stored separately in a cool and dry place and protected from direct sunlight. Ideally in the sealed original packaging with a breathable membrane at a temperature of 10-15 °C. Once opened, bags should be stored at 4-8 °C.
