ROOTSTAR is foliar formulation intended for application in the early stages of plant development in order to improve rooting.

 

The product has a biostimulating effect in plants, activating the production of auxins which enhance cell division and induce the formation of adventitious and lateral roots. The process of root development and growth is further enhanced by synergistic interaction of auxins and zinc.

 

ROOTSTAR is intended for use after germination to improve rooting and during other growing periods in order to accelerate root regeneration after conditions of stress (e.g. freezing temperatures or damage by pests).

 

Major beneficial effects of ROOTSTAR include:

  • Dynamic development of the root mass
  • Improved plant health in the early stages of development
  • Increased plant tolerance to stress associated with low temperature of soil and water scarcity

 

Nutrients Content [g/l] Content [% by mass]
Total nitrogen (N) 73 6.0
incl. ammonium (NH4) nitrogen (N) 73 6.0
Zinc (Zn) 100 8.3
ROOTSTAR contains a specific zinc compound (zinc ammonium acetate) and substances that improve assimilation of nutrients and stimulate the development of the root system (antioxidants and vitamins, such as B1 – an essential component of rooting agents).

 

ROOTSTAR as an activator of plant rooting is one of the elements of the strategy to support the natural resistance of plants STRESS CONTROL SYSTEM (SCS).

FOLIAR SPRAYS

ROOTSTAR is intended for foliar application in the form of an aqueous solution. ROOTSTAR can be used together with other agrochemicals after conducting a miscibility test. Test results are presented in the table INTERMAG agrochemicals mixing table.
Detailed recommendations for foliar application are presented in the table below. You can also use the search engine and quickly find dose rates and times of foliar application for your crop. Select your crop
