Better emergence of Aronia melanocarpa with DCM VIVISOL®

Adding the soil improver DCM VIVISOL® MINIGRAN® helps to obtain a rich and active soil life and ensures optimal health of the seedbed and the young seedlings. The high organic matter content enriches the soil with humus and gives it a crumbly structure, which enhances the emergence of the germinating seeds. DCM VIVISOL® MINIGRAN® also increases soil fertility, and the added Bacillus sp. make the nutrients that are present in the soil (including phosphorus) more readily available. The result? The plant roots develop better, young trees and shrubs grow more easily and stay healthy.

Trial: DCM VIVISOL® applied in autumn sowing of Aronia melanocarpa

The soil improverDCM VIVISOL® MINIGRAN® was applied to a plot at Hergo Boomkwekerij B.V. in Zundert when Aronia melanocarpa was sown in autumn (September). The following summer (July), it was clear that the addition of DCM VIVISOL® MINIGRAN® – to the non-disinfected soil – led to better emergence and more vigorous growth of the young plants.
