"Phytosporin" is not only a preparation for combating fungi, but also an excellent fertilizer. Marking "M" on the package indicates that the product is enriched with humic bioactive fertilizer gumi.

The application of this form is reduced to dilution with water at a rate of 1: 2. Now you have a concentrate ready to be diluted with water immediately before use.
