Restoration of bacterial microflora in orchards and berry crops
Improving yields

Orchards and berry crops are characterised by the presence of a peculiar microflora specific to this growing environment. Maintaining the right composition of beneficial microorganisms on the plant surface is key to maintaining plant health, fruit health and increasing the storage value of the crop. GARD H is an effective biopreparation for the hygienisation of orchard and berry environments. The bacteria in the formulation rebuild the natural microflora on the plants. Due to their high concentration and high multiplication capacity, beneficial bacteria colonise the plant in a way that is competitive with pathogenic microorganisms by limiting the surface area for their growth. Thus, they support healthy plant development and improve crop yields.

Approved for use in organic farming


To prepare a working solution for spraying an area of 1 ha, dissolve 1 kg of the preparation in 500-1200 litres of water.   Start spring treatment as soon as 50% of the leaves have developed on the plant

Repeat the treatment every 14-21 days in the late afternoon or evening.  Perform autumn treatments after the harvest

A minimum of three applications per growing season is recommended  Proposed treatment dates:

  1. When 50% of the leaves have developed.
  2. Flower setting phase, up to 60% flower formation.
  3. Fruit setting phase until 50% of the fruit are set.

Application effects:

  • improves plant nutrition
  • stimulates vegetative and generative growth
  • increases shoot growth
  • improves plant health
  • results in the ‘rejuvenation’ of plantations
  • increases the marketable yield and reduces the non-marketable yield
  • improves yield quality
  • promotes plant recovery following a stress factor
  • increases the storage value of the fruit
  • allows reducing chemical residues in the crop
