How SpinOut Works: As the root tips hit the container wall, they begin to grow around the inside of the pot, forming a circled and matted root system. Poor root architecture leads to poor plant quality.
As its roots come into contact with SpinOut-treated container, they become inhibited, not damaged. Because elongation stops, that growth energy stimulates the development of secondary and lateral roots promoting a fibrous and healthy root system.
SpinOut promotes a more natural root system, which in turn leads to a better quality plant that has a greater chance of survival once transplanted. Research shows that SpinOut improves the plants ability to uptake nutrients. SpinOut plants develop a more fibrous root system, which is able to take up more nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium resulting in a healthier plant. With SpinOut, root pruning or trimming is not necessary. As a result, transplant shock is significantly reduced. Three to six days after a SpinOut plant is transplanted into a new environment, its root tips will begin to grow again. This quick root regeneration allows far faster establishment in the landscape, reducing the risk of transplant shock and increasing the plants chances of survival. Research has also shown that this can promote faster growth resulting in larger plants.
SpinOut is being successfully used on over 250 different species including, vegetables, cereals, annuals, trees and shrubs. SpinOut can be included in every stage of production from the beginning plug trays to the container the plant is being sold in and every stage in between. Plants grown in SpinOut-treated containers are easier to remove and easier to handle because there are no roots sticking to the inside of the container.
SpinOut gives growers a more saleable plant with a longer shelf life because the plant remains in peak condition for an extended period of time.
SpinOut reduces heat and cold stress. A plant grown in an untreated container may have up to 80% of its roots next to the container wall, thus exposing these roots to extreme temperature changes. The roots of a plant grown in a SpinOut-treated container are more evenly distributed in the soil, which insulates them from temperature extremes.
The use of SpinOut improves the quality of the plants a grower sells and reduces the costs involved.
