Plant Health Care Solutions

At Burkholder, we know that the most economically efficient approach to protecting your investment in your landscape is to maintain plant health rather than fall into a cycle of constant plant decline, replacement, and redesign. In its ideal form, plant health care (PHC) is very similar to the model of human health care, with an emphasis on preventive measures and building resiliency, with intervention only called for when the threat gains an edge over the body’s natural defenses. Also for plants, the greatest resiliency is held within healthy specimens under stable abiotic conditions; however, soil nutrition, physiological problems, pest attacks, and weather conditions can work against and overcome these natural defenses.
