MycoApply products enhance plant productivity and long-term soil health by forming root acquisition networks and stable soil aggregates. Together, this optimizes nutrient and water use efficiency and contributes to carbon sequestration.
What is MycoApply?
MycoApply technology is comprised of multiple species of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) selected to enhance plant productivity and soil health in agriculture and horticulture. Mycorrhizal fungi form symbiotic relationships with an estimated 85% of all plant species and promote:
- Root mass expansion
- Improved water acquisition
- Nutrient uptake efficiency
- Improved soil structure
What can MycoApply do for you?
These proven benefits translate to improved abiotic stress mitigation and yield optimization for a wide range of crops.
Early-season applications of MycoApply expand the active root zone of the plant, improving plant nutrient use efficiency (NUE) and water use efficiency (WUE) throughout the crop cycle.
Over the long term, MycoApply revitalizes soils. AMF produce a substance called glomalin that binds soil particles into stable soil aggregates that improve water infiltration and water-holding capacity and build organic matter that contributes to carbon sequestration.
Plant Health Benefits of MycoApply
Expanded Root Mass
The extensive hyphal network that MycoApply forms with the plant can expand the plant’s area of absorption up to 50 times.
Increased Nutrient Use Efficiency
MycoApply helps the plant by improving nutrient acquisition and efficiency to optimize productivity, fertilizer availability, and retention.
Improved Water Acquisition
MycoApply increases a plant’s access to and storage of water from the soil, helping plants improve their drought tolerance and mitigate abiotic stress.
Soil Health Benefits of MycoApply
The glycoprotein that AMF produce, glomalin, forms the basis of strong soil structure, resulting in:
Enhanced Functional Microbial Diversity and Carbon Cycling
The addition of MycoApply to the soil system improves the soil microbiome and supports balanced bacterial to fungal ratios for optimum benefits from soil services.
Improved Water Infiltration and Water-Holding Capacity
Glomalin helps bind soil particles to promote aggregate formation and increase porosity of compacted soil.
Mitigation of Soil Erosion
Glomalin facilitates the formation of soil aggregates that improve soil stability and support reduced erosion of finer soil particles.
