UK: Root dip shown to positively influence transplanting
In 2016 a trial was conducted on new 30 metre long hedge planted in January using Hawthorn together with Hazel, Dog Rose and Field Maple to evaluate the effectiveness of MycorDip Universal. The trial was located in Barnham, West Sussex, UK and the soil type was Brickearth (Hamble Association).
Trees were treated with MycorDip Universal as a bare root dip immediately before planting. To act as a control, the trees in a 4 m section of the hedge were left untreated. No fertiliser was used at planting time.
On July 6 the treatment effects were evaluated by measuring tree height and scoring tree vigour. This was conducted by independent consultant Susie Holmes.
The results clearly show the beneficial effects of treatment. Transplants treated with MycorDip Universal became established very quickly and soon started out grow their untreated counterparts, this effect has continued up to and beyond the date the trial was evaluated.
The trial site had good quality soil and the growing conditions in spring 2016 were favourable. Even greater responses might be expected therefore in less favourable soil conditions.
