Effective control of soil-borne diseases with Trianum

Problems with soil-borne diseases are on the rise, causing severe crop losses worldwide. Trianum continues to perform well to control these diseases both in greenhouses and outdoor crops like onion, leafy, carrots and potatoes.

Trianum is based on the unique fungus Trichoderma harzianum T-22 and protects plants against various soil-borne pathogens such as Pythium, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia and Sclerotinia.
Additionally, Trianum increases the plant’s resistance to stress caused by diseases and suboptimal conditions in nutrition, water and climate.

‘The efficacy of Trianum is comparable to that of a chemical fungicide, but whereas chemicals put stress on the plant, Trianum makes the plant more resilient to stress. Healthier root systems improve the uptake of water and nutrients and helps the plants’ growth’ explains Paolo Banzato, Product Manager at Koppert.

How does Trianum work?

After applying Trianum, the fungus rapidly starts to grow. It creates a barrier around the roots to protect the plant from soil-borne diseases, while competing for food and space. Trianum actively attacks fungal pathogens by breaking down their cell walls.

But there is more. This unique product also supports plant growth and uniformity. This keeps your plants healthy and strong.

Effectively controlling soil-borne pathogens with Trianum can lead to increased yields.

Easy and safe to apply

Trianum can be easily included in your IPM strategy. Paolo: ‘Trianum does not require any special application equipment. It is available in two different formulations to match various application systems used by growers. You can spray or add Trianum-P to an irrigation system or apply Trianum-G to the soil or in the furrow using a granulator’. Another significant advantage of Trianum is that it is safe to use.


Using bio-controls solutions, such as Trianum, offer you many benefits. These products leave no chemical residues on the crop. This will support you in being compliant with the increasing demands and requirements of the value chain. Moreover, you do not have a pre-harvest interval, which will give you more control and flexibility on your moment of harvest.

Trianum can be applied in many different crops, such as leafy, onion, carrots and potatoes. But can also be applied in indoor crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers and strawberries.
This makes Trianum the ideal partner in your fight against soil-borne diseases.
