Bio-fungicide granule – Registered for onion white rot and Fusarium basal rot
Tenet is a bio-fungicide granule applied during field planting of onions and garlic.
The active ingredient is a specific strain of Trichoderma atroviride licensed from Lincoln University and known as LU132. The Trichoderma aggressively colonises and occupies the root zone, protecting the plants’ roots from the pathogens causing Onion White Rot and Fusarium Basal Rot.
Alongside the disease reduction, effective colonisation of the space around the emerging seedling also significantly improves plant emergence and establishment.
Application should be applied using a Gandy box or similar system attached to the seed drill.
Tent is applied at the rate of 25 – 50 kg per ha depending on infection levels in the soil.
We can now apply the active ingredient in Tenet as a seed dressing. Available now and known as Plantmate Onion, initial trial results have focused on increased skin numbers and yields of export quality bulbs.
