Variables Studied

  • Root Development (Days)
  • Plant Emergence (Days)


39 days after application


Dosage: 500 cc / Barrel of water

Evergreen vs Trichomax


After observing the behavior of the different Treatments, we can conclude the following:
The treatment Evergreen 3.75 cc / Liter of Water (750 cc / Barrel of Water), showed the best performance, had the highest number of Stems / Mts, the one that obtained the largest size of the plants and the one with the greatest rooting, obtaining the first roots at 8 DAA and at 15 DAA the emergence of the seedlings. The Product used by the Farm (Trichomax) was the one that took the longest to emit roots and emerge .
