Tree and Root Moisture Retention
This natural wetting agent is derived from yucca, and is a natural compound which helps plants overcome water stress. increase your plant’s ability to establish itself in stressed conditions, as well as increase its water and fertilizer uptake.
We inject a natural solution including, ThermX, a pure Yucca extract deep into the soil around the root system of the trees and shrubs on the property (plants with accessible roots).
- Improve the soil’s absorption and dispersal of both nutrients and water by reducing surface tension. This allows plant roots to absorb more of what is available to them as the water and nutrients are distributed more evenly.
- Yucca extracts reduce salt buildup by reducing dry pocket formation within the soil and increasing permeability in clay soils. In the case of excessive mineral buildup, yucca extracts will reduce the amount of water necessary to flush the soil.
- Saponins and complex carbohydrates in yucca extracts provide slow-release food sources for many soil-dwelling microorganisms. As a result, many compost tea recipes use yucca extracts. Yucca extracts commonly contain micronutrients such as iron, zinc, manganese and copper as well.
- Yucca contains antioxidants (i.e. salicylic acid, vitamin C) that protect cells from free radical damage. Yucca extracts also stimulate plants’ immune systems to produce their own protective hormones boosting insect and disease resistance.
This is offered as a 5 step program, completed during the dormant season.
