About QuickRoots

The microorganisms in QuickRoots™ have been shown to increase availability of certain plant nutrients and can increase plant nutrient uptake. QuickRoots releases plant available phosphorus, which has been shown to increase root mass allowing the plant to explore a greater volume of soil. Increased plant nutrient availability will often lead to increased plant health and vigor which can translate into a yield response.
