Pure MycoApply® Endo Mycorrhizae - Granular
“Mycor” – “rhiza” literally means “fungus” – “root” and defines the mutually beneficial relationship between the plant and root fungus. These specialized fungi colonize plant roots and extend far into the soil. Mycorrhizal fungal filaments in the soil are truly extensions of root systems and are more effective in nutrient and water absorption than the roots themselves. More than 90 percent of plant species in natural areas form a symbiotic relationship with the beneficial mycorrhizal fungi.
Benefits of growing organically with Mycorrhizae

***Mixing Instructions: You cannot over apply mycorrhizae! If you under apply you simply will not get results, so it is always best to err on the high side.
Water Drench: 1 ounce of MycoGrow™ for vegetables is mixed with 1 gallon of water for a water drench. This product can also be banded in rows or side dressed before plantings, or mixed directly in pots and trays.
***Mixing into large quantities: The trick is to make sure that every pound of mycorrhizae has a few white specs in it that indicates the inoculant is present.
Field Application: Mix with CharcoalGreen® Pure Biochar at 20lbs - 60lbs/acre - approx. (2 tons biochar/acre)
The main goal of any mycorrhizal application is to get the product in the root zone of the plant.
High temperatures of 140 degrees F and above can kill the mycorrhizae
Not all, but certain Fungicides can also damage mycorrhizal fungi.
Mycorrhizal fungi actually attach and become part of the plant, they are not free living soil organisms, they require that symbiotic relationship, meaning they will stay with the plant for the life-cycle of that plant. When the plant dies the fungi die.
High levels of available Phosphorous does not harm or kill mycorrhizae, but it can slow there progress.
