Mycorrhizal Applications has announced the launch of MycoApply Injector Endo Organic, a new addition to the MycoApply product line. The product is similar to the MycoApply Injector Endo, but also offers the benefits of OMRI Listing for organic production. Designed for ease and efficiency of application, MycoApply Injector Endo Organic is formulated for application via horticulture injection and dosing equipment and features a very broad label targeted to growers with diverse operations.
Mycorrhizal Applications designed the injector line of mycorrhizal inoculant products in order to allow medium- to large-scale growing operations to incorporate mycorrhizae into their growing protocols efficiently and effectively, avoiding any additional labor-intensive steps in their production protocols. The high solubility of the humic carrier and the high concentration of active ingredients allow these products to be added to a production protocol by adding the inoculant directly into the injector stock tank and then applying the active ingredients 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 Injector Endo Organic launches in spring 2020, and features four species of endomycorrhizae: Glomus intraradices, G. mosseae, G. etunicatum, and G. aggregatum. These soil organisms benefit about 85% of plant species and are included at a very high concentration of 17,600 propagules per gram (7,983,219 propagules per pound). This new addition to the MycoApply lineup is a concentrated suspendable powder formulation on an OMRI Listed soluble humic carrier, sold in 100-gram bags with a 20-gram scoop included. MycoApply Injector Endo Organic is designed to be applied at a rate of 20 grams per 1 gallon of water in the injector’s stock tank and diluted at a rate of 1:100 gallons of drench via injection/dosing equipment. This means that each 100-gram bag of MycoApply Injector Endo Organic can treat 500 gallons of application solution.
Endomycorrhizae are biological, symbiotic soil fungi, which colonize plants’ root systems and act as a living extension of the roots, drastically 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. They can also reduce necessary investments in other important production inputs such as fertilizer and irrigation.
