This endo mycorrhizal produced by BioOrganics, LLC is OMRI listed and registered with the CDFA as an Organic Input Material. It contains a blend of nine of the top types of Endomycorrhizal spores - Glomus aggregatum, G. etunicatum, G. clarum, G. deserticola, G. intraradices, G. monosporus, G. mosseae, Gigaspora margarita, and Paraglomus brasilianum. The spore count guarantee is a minimum of 50 spores per cubic centimeter.

This endomycorrhizal inoculate can be used to coat crop seeds, is water soluble, and can be used as a root dip when transplanting vegetable starts, applied as a soil drench to large areas of turf grass, golf course greens, nursery seedlings, commercial vegetable crops, or bedding plants. 

It can also be blended into soil or soil less mixes or added to hydro seeding mixtures.

This is a general-purpose mycorrhizal inoculant for all Endo-dependent plants, including most vegetables, grapes, fruit trees, berries, turfgrass, and flowers. It can be dusted on transplant roots, blended into potting soils, worked into soil before seeding, or scattered on lawns and flower beds.

Application Rates:

Transplants: Sprinkle inoculant directly on roots or root balls at planting time, or scatter inoculant in planting holes.  Apply at least  teaspoon (5 cc) to new trees or vines.

Seeded Crops: Dust dry inoculant on seeds at minimum rate of 1 lb. per acre.  Seeds may need to be slightly dampened.

Existing Plants: Probe 2-8 small holes in area of new roots, push 1 teaspoon down hole to root zone.

Seedling Trays: Mix into water at a rate of 1/2 cup/gallon (30 cc/liter) and drench trays.  Avoid wasteful runoff, keep mixture agitated, and use within 24 hours.

Potting Soil: Mix in 1 lb./cubic yard or 2 tablespoons/cubic foot.

Lawns: Apply as soil drench, 1 tablespoon/gallon, each gallon treats 50 sq. feet.  Follow immediately with watering in.

GARDENERS: For garden row crops, such as corn or beans, apply 1 teaspoon per linear foot and work into top 2-4 inches of soil before seeding, or work a half-teaspoon of inoculant into soil under larger seeds, such as melons or squash. Dust a half teaspoon on transplants such as tomatoes, peppers, or bedding flowers.

COMMERCIAL GROWERS: A 3-lb. jar will contain enough doses for 500 larger transplants (grapes, fruit trees), 1500 vegetable transplants (tomatoes, peppers, etc.), or up to 5000 closely-planted small plants (strawberries). For blending into potting soils, we recommend a minimum of 1 lb. per cubic yard of soil. Please contact us for recommendations for your specific crops or nursery stock.

Beneficial mycorrhizae (root fungi) form a symbiotic relationship with 90% of all plants root systems.  Mycorrhizae fungi colonize a plants root zone and the surrounding soil.  These fungi extend microscopic straw-like filaments called "hyphae" into the soil surrounding a host plants root system.  The hyphae then extract, transport, and dramatically increases a host plant's supply of nutrients and moisture.  Nutrients and water once unreachable by ordinary root systems now become accessible through the "mining" effects which mycorrhizae process nutrients for plants.  Mycorrhizae fungi produce acids that process phosphorus and many trace minerals into forms available to plants.  Mycorrhizae fungi can increase the surface absorbing area of a plants root system by 10 to 1000 times facilitating more efficient usage of water and nutrients.  Any nutrients not taken up by plants will remain locked in the Mycorrhizae fungi for later release.  Mycorrhizae fungi are also known to form a protective barrier in and around the root zone outcompeting other organisms for food and space.  

Over time, Mycorrhizae fungi can improve soil quality in the rhizosphere resulting in healthier more disease and drought resistant abundant plants.

Ectomycorrhizae; preferred by hardwood and conifers, form a web colonizing the outside of the root and.

Endomycorrhizae; preferred by most annuals, perennials, vegetables, grasses, shrubs, and softwood trees, colonize the inside of the root and forms strands throughout the soil.
