Bio/Organics Root Dip Endomycorrhizal Inoculant

Root Dip Endomycorrhizal 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.

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, add disease resistance, and can increase yields while improving soil for future crops. As a rule, fertilizer inputs can be substantially reduced for mycorrhizal plants.

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

SPECIALIZED USE
A water absorbing horticultural hydrogel of mycorrhizal inoculant. Mixes instantly with water to make a convenient slurry that clings to bare roots.

ADVANTAGES
May be applied to cuttings or transplants in advance of planting, then moved to planting field or greenhouse. Total coating insures better final contact with roots after planting.

Mix with water at a rate of 3/4 cup inoculant per gallon of water ( 42 cc/l). Each 3 lb. jar of inoculant makes at least 10 gallons of slurry. Each gallon (4 liters) of slurry will treat 50 transplant vines or bareroot trees or 500 small plants (such as strawberries). No need to coat all roots of larger transplants. No harm in applying slurry at heavier rates.

The great majority of deciduous trees, shrubs, flowers, and grasses associate with the Endomycorrhizal-type species in our product. However, pines, oaks and a few other trees associate with Ectomycorrhizae. Landscapers may prefer the Endo/Ecto blend.

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.
