Can "anti rot" be used to drench the soil around a tree to combat fungal infection in the roots.

Sydney Botanic Gardens plant disease lab has recommended we drench the soil around a Californian redwood with anti rot to combat a root fungal infection. However your website only recommends it as a foliar spray. Is it possible to use it as a soil treatment and if so what are the dilution rates?

Answer: Dear Tim,

AntiRot is a preventative and curative systemic fungicide which when sprayed on the foliage will boost the plants self defence mechanisms, giving it the ability to prevent disease taking hold, as well as helping to cure disease that already exists.

The product is absorbed by the leaves and then travels down to the root system. It is not applied as a soil treatment. You will find all this information on the label.
