RootShield WP Now Available in Canada 

Victor, New York (September 27, 2011) - BioWorks is pleased to announce that RootShield WP is now available in Canada. RootShield WP is a new, improved formulation of RootShield HC biological fungicide. 

 RootShield WP for Canada

RootShield WP's enhanced formulation replaces clay with a water soluble carrier for easier mixing and suspension, which reduces clogging in application and irrigation equipment. RootShield WP provides preventative control of major root diseases including Pythium, Fusarium, and Rhizoctonia. The product's active ingredient, the highly effective, hybrid fungus Trichoderma harzianum, strain T-22, grows on roots, protecting them against damaging fungi. RootShield WP is registered for indoor and outdoor root disease control on greenhouse and outdoor ornamentals and vegetables, and has a 4-hour Restricted Entry Interval (REI). 


Currently all BioWorks products available in Canada are distributed through Koppert Canada Limited. "We are proud to announce the arrival of RootShield WP into Canada and look forward to working with Koppert in offering this new and imporoved product to Canadian growers," commented Joe Gionta, Director of Sales and Marketing for BioWorks.


Paul Goodspeed, President of Koppert Canada Limited stated "We have been anxiously awaiting the release of this new formulation of RootShield. The WP formulation will make RootShield much easier to use while providing consistent, effective disease control in a wide variety of crops."
