and hence improve mineral and water uptake. Auxins are known to stimulate rapid plant growth by increasing cell elongation and cytokinins are known to stimulate long-term plant growth by facilitating cell division and differentiation in plants.
Plant associated microbes efficiently colonize root surfaces. This allows them to not only provide the benefits listed above, but to also help prevent the deleterious effects of phytopathogenic organisms. They do this through direct competition for resources and through the production of fungal cell wall degrading enzymes and other antimicrobial compounds.
Terra-Fresh Home and Garden ™ creates an environment where beneficial bacteria populations reach their maximum potential. As a result, nutrient cycling and availability is enhanced, phytohormone production is increased and the growth of undesirable pathogenic organisms is suppressed. The plant, in turn, feeds more efficiently and processes more nutrients leading to superior growth.
