TerraCottem Arbor Soil Conditioner
TerraCottem Arbor has been developed specially for tree and shrub planting. Central to this latest formulation are the new generation polymers, the inclusion of humic acids to further enhance water retention capacity, soil structure and microbiological activity and tree specific fertiliser (with a lifespan up to 12 months) balanced with a starter fertiliser for rapid plant establishment and a synthetic nitrogen fertiliser. All this, to ease early tree acclimation to the planting area, enhance root and plant growth and increase tree survival rate whilst reducing inputs and replacement costs.
The product is a physical soil conditioner designed to increase the water and nutrient holding capacity of soils and growing media, increase plants' root development, growth and survival rate and reduce the need for watering by up to 50%. The product is a dry, free-flowing, powdery-to-granular mixture of cross-linked hydro absorbent polymers, growth precursors and volcanic rock enriched with soluble, slow-release and synthetic nitrogen fertilisers and humic acids. The product has an absorption capacity of a minimum of 4500g H2O/100 g in distilled water using Method of Analysis CEN EN 13041 and more than 95% of the water contained in the polymers is plant available.
The soil conditioning technology has to be mixed homogeneously into the root zone or growing medium.
