Why Use a Transplant Solution or Root Dip?

Transplant drenches and root dips provide a shot of nutrients and water to help alleviate the stress of transplant and boost plant energy and resources to overcome and reverse the affects of stress.


Transplanting Introduces Stress

When a plant undergoes a transplant, it is taken from its comfortable environment and placed into an uncomfortable, new place. When a plant is taken out of the ground, it will lose much of its root mass, most of which will be in the form of the tiny root hairs that bring in the majority of nutrients and water. Some plants are kept in a small amount of original soil and other are removed from the soil in which they were growing and transported, bare root. Both methods expose the plant and its roots to a tremendous amount of stress and, if left in this state for long, will cause the plant to die. 


Recovering from Stress

This is why transplanting methods and procedures are key to plant recovery and continued plant health. While getting used to its new surroundings, much will have changed about the properties of the soil including texture, moisture, nutrient content and biological life (microbes). 


Factors and Inputs

A transplant drench can help to alleviate stress by providing key nutrients, growth promotants, and biological stimulants to the plant, its roots, and the surrounding soil. Transplant drenches can include a variety of materials, depending on the type of plant being transplanted, its age and time of year. Materials can include nutrients, micronutrients, humates, kelp, enzymes, ocean water, inoculants, and more.


Agriculture solutions provides many fine materials which can be used alone or in combination with one another to create an ideal transplant drench for your situation.
