Building on the positive grower response to the “MycoApply Injector” concentrated injectable product line recently launched in the US market, mycorrhizal fungi manufacturer Mycorrhizal Applications has rolled out inoculant MycoApply SuperConcentrate10 for the Canadian market

Registered and available in Canada, the product features four species of endomycorrhizal fungi: Glomus intraradices, G. mosseae, G. etunicatum, and G. aggregatum.  According to the manufacturer, these soil organisms benefit about 85 per cent of plant species, and are included at a very high concentration of 22,000 propagules per gram (9,979,024 propagules per pound).  The broad label makes this new product ideal for growers with diverse operations.

Endomycorrhizal fungi (also known as Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi or AMF) are biological, symbiotic soil fungi, which colonize plants’ root systems and act as a living extension of the roots, increasing the absorptive surface area and improving the plant’s nutrient and water efficiency. Data shows that mycorrhizae provide a range of direct and indirect benefits to host plants through this symbiosis, and ultimately increase plants’ overall vitality, stress resilience, drought resistance, and transplant success, says the manufacturer.

Advertisment

Designed for ease and efficiency of application, the high concentration of active ingredients allows MycoApply SuperConcentrate10 to be added to a production protocol by adding the inoculant directly into the injector stock tank.  The suspension can then be applied to the crop via boom spray, sprinkler, drip irrigation, hand spray, hydroseed/hydromulch, in-furrow, or any method that effectively drenches the crop plant’s root zone to get the propagules into direct contact with the growing roots.

MycoApply SuperConcentrate10 is designed to be applied at a rate of 20 grams per 1 gallon (3.78 litres) of water in the injector’s stock tank, and diluted at a rate of 1:100 gallons of drench via injection/dosing equipment.  Each 227-gram bottle of MycoApply SuperConcentrate10 can treat 1,135 gallons (4,296 litres) of application suspension.
