This root inoculum contains four species of endomycorrhizal fungi and is designed to optimize vegetable plant growth by extending the root system with mycelial networks, resulting in greater water and nutrient uptake benefitting the plant with drought and disease resistance. This mycorrhizae comes in powder form (freeze dried spore mass) and contains about 130,000 propagules per pound. It is the perfect companion for garden or potting soils that are often devoid of beneficial microorganisms. The powdered inoculum can be stored in a cool dry area for 24 months without loss of viability.
Endomycorrhizal species: (130,000 Propagules per lb Total)
Glomus intraradices, Glomus aggregatum, Glomus mosseae, Glomus etunicatum (71.7 propagules/g each).
**Contains approximately 130,000 endomycorrhizal spores/lb.
This inoculum is most effective when applied in direct contact with plant roots and seeds. Root enzymes stimulate mycorrhizal germination.
