Bio/Organics Landscape Inoculant

Landscape Inoculant This inoculum contains a concentrated blend of multiple widely adapted strains of dormant spores of beneficial mycorrhizal fungi. Glomus brasilianum, G. clarum, G. deserticola, G. etunicatum, G. intraradices, G. monosporus, G. mosseae, Gigaspora margarita and others. - minimum 50 whole spores per cubic centimeter. Ectomycorrhizal fungi spores, minimum 50,000/cc (Pisolithus tinctorius, Rhizopogon spp.).

Once in contact with the host plant, the fungus spreads throughout the root system and begins searching the surrounding soil for nutrients to bring to its host plant.

Mycorrhizae promote plant vigor and disease resistance. As a rule, fertilizer inputs can be substantially reduced for mycorrhizal plants.

Most landscape and restoration plants use one or more of the species in this powdered blend.

The main observed benefits are improved survival and growth rates, greater tolerance of problem soils, and a reduced need for water & fertilizer.

Sprinkle inoculant on roots of transplants, dust on seeds, or mix into water and apply as a soil drench to new plantings. For existing plants, these superior species are best introduced by inoculating roots of cover crops.

Studies have documented good effects on turf grass (including golf greens), ornamentals in poor urban soils, freeway and site restoration projects, plus flowerbeds. The powdered inoculant can be applied as a dust, mixed into water and applied as a drench, or injected to root zones.

Application Rates and Procedures
Transplanted Trees, Vines and Shrubs: sprinkle 1/4 tablespoon of micronized inoculant directly on damp roots or rootballs immediately before planting or scatter inoculant in planting holes. 3 lbs of inoculant will treat at least 400 typical-size transplants. Use 1 tsp/5cc for small trees and shrubs; 1-4 T./15-50cc for larger trees; 1 cup/.25 liter for very large boxed transplants.

New Turf or Flower Beds: Apply as drench immediately after laying sod, seeding, or transplanting flowers into beds. Turf drench mix: 1 T/gal or 4cc/liter; apply 1 gal/50 sqft, 1 liter/sq.meter or 27.5 lbs/acre.

Other Applications: Inoculant may be added to hydroseeding mixtures, blended into soil amendments, or injected to root zones of existing trees.

For maximum benefits, the use of lower analysis gradual-release fertilizers is recommended. Fast-acting fertilizers (especially P) can harm mycorrhizal fungi. Avoid use of soil-drench or systemic fungicides, although contact-type fungicides are generally not harmful. Insecticides and herbicides that do not kill the host plant are generally not harmful.
