The term mycorrhizal comes from a Greek origin of the two words "mykes", meaning fungus, and "rhiza", meaning root. These types of fungi have been able to establish symbiotic (or mutually beneficial) relationships with a wide variety of plants over time. More than 90% of plant species in natural areas form a symbiotic relationship with the beneficial mycorrhizal fungi. The networks created in the root system of plants by the mycorrhizae essentially create more surface area for the roots to be able to access and absorb more water and nutrients from the soil.
Please read further down for specific uses and application rates.
• Enhanced plant efficiency in absorbing water and nutrients from the soil.
• Reducing fertility and irrigation requirements.
• Increased drought resistance.
• Increased pathogen resistance/protection.
• Enhancing plant health and vigor, and minimizing stress.
• Enhanced seedling growth.
• Enhanced rooting of cuttings.
• Increased salt tolerance.
• Increased root generation.
• Enhances other valuable organisms in the soil.
• Produce more stress resistant plants during production and for landscape.
• Potentially less pesticide usage.
• Potentially higher transplanting success and faster establishment.
1 Ounce is sufficient to coat 1 pound of seeds.
