Heat Shield is designed to increase your crop’s tolerance to extreme field situations like salt, drought, cold and heat. The biggest impact will come from Heat Shield when it’s included with a seed treatment or applied in-furrow. This is because Heat Shield is a beneficial fungus that lives and works inside the plant to increase its abilty to withstand difficult growing environments.
There are six strains of Trichoderma harzianum fungi that make up Heat Shield and give it efficacy in a variety of extreme conditions. Heat Shield is a critical component of Hefty Complete Seed Treatments and has shown additional benefits when used with other biological products that promote plant health and increased nutrient efficiency.
