Soil Trooper - the Active Components
There are two active parts of Soil Trooper: spores and hyphae.
The hyphae are like the runners of a grass and the spores are like seeds. If you make a spray with a 1ha (60g) pack of Soil Trooper and 200L of untreated water, there will be about 20 spores for every drop of that 200L. There will also be many fragments of hyphae. Each of those fragments has the potential to grow into a fungi that produces millions of spores and unimaginable amounts of hyphae.
The spores are hardy and can survive droughts and freezing weather. They will, like many seeds, sprout only when the conditions are right. The hyphae, on the other hand, are fragile. Hyphae will die if they get hot or dry. It is the hyphae that are Soil Trooper’s rapid establishment component and the spores that are the back-up. When a fragment of hyphae lands it will begin to grow immediately and, if the weather is kind to the fragile microscopic strand, it will grow fast.
Our research and testing indicates that it is these hyphae that are responsible for the fast response times that have been reported.
For best results, use Soil Trooper when the weather is a bit damp and not too hot.
Hyphae - plural, each of the branching filaments that make up the mycelium of a fungus.
