Broadleaf Root Dip

Broadleaf Root Dip is beneficial for all sizes of softwood and hardwood trees and on all species of bushes and shrubs. It is also ideal for bare-root transplanting of vegetable crops and international transporting of bare-root plant material.

Bare-root treatment with BROADLEAF ROOT DIP and planting-pocket incorporation of Broadleaf P4 can be used together in a complementary manner to great short and long term benefit. Bareroot dipping is intended to act as an anti-desiccant to extend out-of-soil life and counteract transplant shock. It is not designed to replace the incorporation of Broadleaf P4, which is needed to supply roots with adequate moisture to support a sizeable leaf canopy over an extended period of time after transplanting.

The quantity of Broadleaf Root Dip gel that can be loaded onto the bare roots will depend on the type of root system (e.g. fibrous versus bushy or spindly) and the consistency of the gel. If dipped plant material has to be transported any significant distance to the planting site, cover the roots with a suitable carrier or container, such as a plastic wrap, to retain the gel around the roots.
