AEGIS Sym Irriga


When AEGIS Sym Irriga is applied, the fungus begins the germination process due to favourable growing conditions in terms of humidity and temperature. Then the mycorrhiza formation process begins. The spores emit a germ tube or tubes and the fungal mycelium grows until it finds a host root, where it then forms a structure similar to an appressorium and penetrates between the epidermal cells or through the root hairs. After this penetration, the colonisation of the root’s parenchymatous tissue begins.

AEGIS Sym Irriga is formulated for its application through irrigation systems for all types of land and crops; providing plants with significant benefits; better absorption of water and mineral nutrients from the ground, increased survival on transplant, greater resistance/tolerance to certain pathogens from the soil and to hydric and saline stress. Other benefits are an increase in the root system of the plants, a reduction in the contribution from fertilisers and water, a better germination index, increased agricultural yield.

The application of soil disinfectants, fungicidal treatments and fertilisers with a high phosphorous content may affect or inhibit the development of mycorrhizal fungi. However, tests carried out show that some active fungicidals (chlorothanonil, cyproconazole, dimetamorf, iprodione, flutolanil, fosetyl-AI, metalaxyl, hymexazol, mancozeb, maneb, thiophanate methyl, mefenoxam, copper oxycloride, propamocarb, propiconazole, quinosol, thiabendazole, triforine) are compatible with AEGIS Sym Irriga when applied at the recommended doses.

Suitable for use on all plant species with the exception of the following: fir, poplar, cork oak, hazel, azalea, blueberry, chestnut, carnation, cabbage, holm oak, beech, laurel, orchid, pine trees, radish, beets, oak and rhododendron.
