Mycorrhizal

Mycorrhizal Applications, Inc is the world’s leader in the production of diverse quality mycorrhizal inoculum. Produced for landscapers, farms, forest nurseries, restoration & erosion control companies, hydro-seeders and manufacturers. They research, and contribute to, a database of over 50,000 mycorrhizal abstracts and maintain their own research laboratory. About 95% of the world’s land plants form a mycorrhizal relationship in their native habitats. It is estimated that mycorrhizal fungal filaments explore hundreds to thousands more soil volume compared to roots alone.

Advantages:
Improved nutrient and water uptake
Improved root growth
Improved plant growth and yield
Improved disease resistance
Reduced transplant shock
Reduced drought stress
Parasitic nematode control
MycoApply Endo Granular

 

MycoApply ® Endo mycorrhizal granular inoculum consists of 3 carefully selected species of endomycorrhizae. These beneficial fungi build a natural microbial system, which greatly enhance plant growth, vigor and tolerance of environmental extremes. MycoApply ® Endo is a granular material containing mycorrhizal fungi that colonize roots and extend into the surrounding soil forming an essential link between plant and soil resources. About 90% of the world’s plant species form mycorrhizae with these beneficial endomycorrhizal fungi. Beneficial mycorrhizal fungi expand into the surrounding soil and greatly increase the root’s ability to absorb water and nutrients, while improving plant yields and health.

Directions:
The goal is to create physical contact between the roots and inoculant. Inoculant can be banded under seed, worked into seed beds, placed under cuttings, blended into potting soil, or sprinkled near roots at transplant time. Some examples of inoculation practices and rates include:

(1) Restoration: Use 20 pounds per acre for broadcast or hydromulch applications before or during planting.
(2) Nurseries: Inoculum can be mixed in planting soil before/during filling cavities, pots, and trays. May be mixed with mechanical equipment that allows passage of 1/4 inch (7mm) or larger particles. For propagation: Use 2 pounds per cubic yard.
(3) For turf: Apply during installation or aerification of turf. Use .25 to .5 pound per 1000 sq. ft.
(4) For planting: Apply in furrow 1 teaspoon per row foot; Cuttings-1/2 teaspoon under each cutting;Potted Transplants- Use 1-2 tablespoons per gallon planting size; Ball and Burlap plantings- use .5 to 1.5 ounces per inch of stem caliper.
(5) Agriculture: Band or mix with seed at 2 lbs./acre.

Benefits:
Reduces: Drought stress; Water and fertilizer needs; Disease losses; Transplant shock
Increases: Flowering and fruiting; Water and nutrient storage and uptake; Root growth
Promotes: Extensive root system; Soil structure; Plant establishment.

MycoApply Endo Powder
MycoApply ® Micronized endo mycorrhizal micronized powder inoculum consists of a 3 species blend of spores of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (endomycorrhizal fungi). The powder comes in a particle size less than 300 microns (#50 screen). About 90% of the world’s plant species form mycorrhizae with these beneficial endomycorrhizal fungi. These beneficial fungi colonize plant roots, expand into the surrounding soil and greatly increase the root’s ability to absorb water and nutrients, while improving plant yields and health.

Directions:
(1)Watering in: (Porous soil only) – Mix into water at minimum rate of 2 tablespoons per gallon (No harm in using stronger ratios if desired– especially for problem plants). Mix well and keep agitated. Mist or dip plant root systems during transplanting or water in as a soil drench. Each gallon will treat 50 one-gallon plants.  Â
(2) Restoration: Use 10 pounds per acre for broadcast or hydromulch applications before or during planting.
(3) Nurseries: Inoculum can be mixed in planting soil before/during filling cavities, pots, and trays. Use .25 to .75 pounds per cubic yard. Use higher rate if filling small individual cavities.
(4) Compost Tea: Use one pound per 50 gallons of tea as a soil drench. Apply tea at normal rate.
(5) Transplants: Touch damp roots to the inoculum so a small amount sticks to the roots or sprinkle into planting holes. Use 1/4 teaspoon under each cutting; 1-2 teaspoons for potted transplants; 1/2 ounce per inch of stem caliper plantings .
(6) Agriculture: Band or mix with seed at 1-2 lbs. per acre

Benefits:
Reduces: Drought stress; Water and fertilizer needs; Disease losses; Transplant shock
Increases: Plant quality and yields; Water and nutrient storage and uptake; Resistance to soil-born diseases
Promotes: Extensive root system; Soil structure; Plant establishment.


MycoApply Root Dip Gel

MycoApply ® Root dip gel contains 12 carefully selected mycorrhizal fungi, well suited to a variety of soils, climates, and plants. These fungi build a natural microbial system in and around plant roots, which greatly enhance plant growth and vigor. In nature, over 90% of all plants form a beneficial relationship with mycorrhizal fungi. MycoApply ® Root dip gel also contains soluble kelp, humic & fulvic acids, vitamins B and C, and an organic starch based gel for improved water storage and uptake. MycoApply ® Root dip gel can be stored in a cool dry area for 24 months without loss of viability.

Directions:
The goal is to create physical contact between the roots and inoculant.
(1) Mix 16 ounces MycoApply ® Root dip gel in four gallons of water or four ounces in one gallon water.
(2) Let stand for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The product will form a slurry or thin gravy, so the active ingredients will adhere to the roots
(3) Dip each root system for about 5 seconds and plant in soil.

One gallon of mix will treat approximately 250 small plants or 10 large plants. Four gallons of mix will treat 1000 small plants or 40 large plants. The number of plants treated depends on root mass and how much of the mixture the roots of your plants will absorb.

Benefits:
Reduces: Drought stress; Water and fertilizer needs; Disease losses; Transplant shock
Increases: Plant quality and yields; Water and nutrient storage and uptake; Resistance to soil born diseases
Promotes: Extensive root system; Soil structure; Plant tolerance of environmental extremes.
