As the world’s leading manufacturer of professional-grade mycorrhizal inoculant products, Mycorrhizal Applications researches, produces, and markets a diverse selection of mycorrhizal fungi species, with the mission to “harness the power and wisdom of natural systems to promote living soils and increase quality, productivity, and health in all industries involving soils, plants, and people.”

Once introduced to the plant’s root system, mycorrhizae create a microscopic network within the growing media, which acts as a living extension of the plant’s roots, actively delivering nutrients, water, and resources to the plant. Mycorrhizal fungi are the most researched soil organisms in the world, with scholarly research articles and published trials numbering in the tens of thousands. Approximately 95 percent of plant species on Earth rely on symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi to thrive and reach their full genetic potential.

Professional horticulturists, nurseries, greenhouses, landscape professionals, farmers, forestry nurseries, restoration/erosion control specialists, and even growing media and fertilizer manufacturers utilize the MycoApply® professional line of mycorrhizal inoculants produced by Mycorrhizal Applications to maximize plant success and improve return on input investment. By establishing this vital symbiosis, growers can reduce their fertilizer inputs by as much as 30-50 percent. MycoApply® helps growers optimize plant performance, stress resilience, and sustainability, and is available from horticulture distributors and suppliers throughout the U.S. Mycorrhizal Applications is not only one of the first commercial producers of mycorrhizae for horticulture, agriculture, and all industries involving soils, plants, and people — they also offer unique and valuable customer service and technical support.
