As any professional grower or gardener will tell you, Pythium root rot is a nasty pest that, if left untreated, can cause failure of an entire crop in very short order. Formerly classified as a fungus, scientists have learned much more about the varying “strains” of Pythium and have changed its classification to a pathogen. Regardless of the type of pathogen involved, the mechanism of action for the Pythium genus remains the same. Oftentimes Pythium root rot is referred to as “damping off.”
Just thought we would share some of are wonderful results of Hygrozyme! We have been growing pumpkins for over 17 years and we are always trying new chemicals mixing and matching.
I read about your product in a few magazines a year ago and decided to try it. So I put our pumpkin seeds in the ground on June 24 2006 in a side to side comparasion 1 with miracle grow, 1 with hygrozyme.
The function of Hygrozyme in pure hydroponic systems is one of acting as a refined natural facilitator/cleaner. Hygrozyme aids in the removal and conversion of dead organic material by facilitating and expediting the natural breakdown progress. What normally might take weeks can be accomplished in minutes with the presence of specific natural enzymes. In a closed hydroponic system are many factors which can facilitate the development of disease. The build up of dead matter is usually the contributing factor to this common problem.
