Seed Mix root inoculum contains of four species of endomycorrhizal mycorrhizal fungi and seven species of ectomycorrhizal fungi. The powder comes in a particle size of less than 300 microns (#50 screen). MycoGrow Micronized Endo/Ecto Seed Mix ensures the mycorrhizal symbiont is present at germination helping seedlings access water and nutrients for vigorous early growth. The powered inoculum can be stored in a cool dry area for 24 months without loss of viability.
1 Ounce is sufficient to coat 1 pound of seeds.
Endomycorrhizal fungi: (130,000 propagules per pound total)
Glomus intraradices, G. aggregatum, G. mosseae, G. etunicatum (71.7 propagules per gram each)
Ectomycorrhizal fungi: (110,000,000 propagules per pound total)
Rhizopogon fulvigleba, R. villosullus, R. luteolus, R. amylopogon (2,750 propagules per gram each)
Pisolithus tinctorius (220,509 propagules per gram)
Scleroderma cepa, S. citrinum (5,500 propagules per gram each)
Micronized Seed Mix is most effective when applied in direct contact with plant roots and seeds, root enzymes stimulate mycorrhizal germination.
- Seed Treatment: To use as a seed coat at time of planting, moisten seeds slightly, drain excess water and coat 1 pound of seeds with one ounce of inoculum.
- Restoration: Use 10 pounds per acre. Broadcast mixed with seed or hydromulch operation before or during plantings.
- Agriculture: Inoculum can be banded in rows or side dressed before or during planting at a rate of 1–2 pounds per acre or approximately ¼ teaspoon under each planting
- Nursery: Inoculum can be mixed in planting soil before/during filling cavities, pots, and trays at a rate of 4–12 ounces per cubic yard of soil.
- For compost tea or watering in: Inoculum can be mixed in compost tea or water at a minimum rate one ounce (2 tablespoons) to about 1 gallon. Mix well and keep agitated. One gallon will treat about 75 one-gallon sized plants.
