Rootbastic is a universal root stimulator that is distinguishing for the high concentration of N-P-K and a large dose of trace minerals. The mineral nutrients, a vegetable extract and amino acids are present in high concentrations.
Rootbastic contains relatively many NPK’s (4-14-4 W / W). For a root stimulator, however, the phosphorus content is important. Phosphorus is the element that ensures the transport and storage of energy (in the form of ATP) and forms an important part of building elements in cells and DNA.
The addition with trace elements is essential in the first growth stages of the plant for the development of the roots. The only difference between the trace elements and NPK is that the amount needed for this type of elements is much smaller, but that does not alter the fact that these elements are important for the entire duration of the culture.
This universal nutrient is suitable for many crops like different kinds of vegetables, fruits and herbs like pumpkins, zucchinis, cucumbers, potatoes, rettich etc. Experienced growers can measure the required dosage per plant, based on the NPK-values.
• High NPK-concentration
• Healthy root system
• Better resistance against diseases and fungi
