Sun Gro Resilience Put to the Test

Sun Gro Horticulture is proud to report significant and dramatic results after recently trialing Resilience, its brand of patented growing and propagation mixes enriched with silicon. To demonstrate the plant growth benefits of Resilience, Sun Gro tested Sunshine, Fafard and Metro Mix at the Sun Gro Discovery Center in Anderson, South Carolina. Researchers measured week-by-week growth of more than 40 commercial plant varieties, from transplant through to post-harvest. Resilience-enriched mixes showed 40% better root growth, 12% increased stem diameter, 77% longer time before wilt and 13% earlier flowering time, as compared with standard mixes. “Growers can now deliver stronger, more vigorous plants from the greenhouse to retailer,” says Chris Bednar, COO of Sun Gro. “This will increase sales and reduce plant losses for growers and garden retailers.” Resilience is also included in select Sun Gro retail potting mixes, including Black Gold, Fafard, Sunshine and Sunshine Advanced.
