Roots of the plant

Healthy plants have a fine and dense network of vital, white roots.

Healthy roots provide the opportunity for the plant to establish itself and grow.

If the root system of the plant is unhealthy, the plant will stall the initial years in order to concentrate on root development.

Proper tillage and timing of the planting will contribute to the plant's growth and a healthy root development.
