What is MycoApply?

MycoApply is a line of products used in agriculture and horticulture comprised of multiple species of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), selected to enhance plant productivity and soil health. Mycorrhizal fungi form symbiotic relationships with an estimated 85% of all plant species and promote such benefits as root mass expansion, improved water acquisition, nutrient uptake efficiency, and improved soil structure. These proven benefits translate to improved abiotic stress mitigation and yield optimization for a wide range of crops.

The term Mycorrhizae (myco – fungus; rhizae – roots) refers to the symbiotic relationship between fungi and plants. This is a relationship in which the fungus colonizes the host plant’s root tissues. The fungi provide the host plant with increased water and nutrient absorption capabilities while the plant supplies the fungi with carbohydrates formed from photosynthesis. Structures that make up arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi include:

Hyphae – filaments that extend into the soil for water and nutrient uptake
Arbuscules – intricately branched fungal structures where the exchange (nutrients, water, carbohydates) between the host plant and fungi take place
Vesicles – bladder-like structures that store nutrients and water in the form of lipids
Spores
– reproductive structures used for dispersal and/or survival during unfavorable conditions

Which crops is MycoApply used on?

  • Annual and Perennial crops
  • Specialty and Row crops

Why is MycoApply important?

MycoApply delivers both in-season (short-term) and multi-season (long-term) benefits to growers. In the short term (for most production systems), early-season applications of MycoApply expand the active root zone of the plant, improving physiological plant functions for the balance of the crop cycle. In the long term, MycoApply revitalizes depleted soils by dramatically improving soil structure and stability. AMF produce a sticky glycoprotein called glomalin that binds micro-soil particles into macroparticles, forming strong bonds that result in optimal soil stability and improved water penetration and holding capacity. These benefits combine to support crops by minimizing the negative impacts of heat, drought, and nutrient stress on yield.

How does MycoApply work?

MycoApply consists of four select AMF fungi species that colonize the cells of plant roots. These include Glomus intraradices, G. mosseae, G. aggregatum, and G. etunicatum. These fungal species spread through the growth of long, filamentous structures called hyphae – the vegetative structures of fungi. The hyphae grow into plant root cells and extend through the soil, colonizing the root system of the host plant to increase its root absorption area as much as 50x.

Plant Health Benefits of MycoApply

  • Root Absorption Area Expansion – The extensive hyphal network MycoApply forms with the plant can dramatically expand the vascular in the root zone
  • Nutrient Uptake Efficiency – MycoApply helps plants obtain available and unavailable nutrients more efficiently by increasing surface area for nutrient absorption and producing enzymes that release tightly bound nutrients in the soil
  • Water Acquisition – Mycorrhizal hyphae increase access to, and facilitate storage and transport of, water from the soil to the plant, reaching into tiny pores the plant would not otherwise reach. This access to otherwise unavailable water helps plants improve their heat and drought stress tolerance

Soil Health Benefits of MycoApply

In the mid 1990s it was discovered that mycorrhizal hyphae produce a sticky glycoprotein called glomalin, which binds soil particles into stable aggregates over time. The presence of glomalin forms the basis of strong soil structure, resulting in:
  • Mitigation of Soil Erosion
  • More Efficient Water Penetration
  • Enhanced Water Holding Capacity
