Drammatic K Suppresses Fusarium?
In a recent study conducted by the University of Guelph, in Canada, suppression of fusarium occurred in plants fertilized with Drammatic K fish hydrolysate.
In the study, cyclamen plants were exposed to fusarium. The study found the plants that had been fertilized with Drammatic K showed significantly slower growth of wilt symptoms than the plants not fed the fish hydrolysate, reported Dramm Corporation.
The study also found cucumber plants treated with Drammatic K produced a greater quantity of roots than untreated cucumber plants. In cucumber plants exposed to Fusarium, the plants treated with Drammatic K had about 50 percent less root disease than the untreated plants, also according to Dramm.
