Adding to its Injector series of mycorrhizal inoculant products, Mycorrhizal Applications has launched MycoApply Injector Ecto for Fall 2020.
MycoApply® Injector Ecto
Building on the success of the MycoApply Injector product line, Mycorrhizal Applications has once again responded to customer demand by rolling out MycoApply Injector Ecto. This new addition to the MycoApply product line represents the first ectomycorrhizae - only offering for the US market from the company, which is specifically formulated to meet the needs of key niche markets. MycoApply Injector Ecto contains a very high spore concentration of a diverse array of ectomycorrhizal fungi species on a soluble humic carrier, designed to benefit most conifers and hardwoods, some woody shrubs, as well as several commercial nut trees including Pecans, Hazelnuts, and Chestnuts.
Ectomycorrhizal relationships tend to be more species-specific than endomycorrhizal symbiosis, however, the expert R&D Team at Mycorrhizal Applications has developed this five-species blend to benefit the maximum number of ectomycorrhizal plant species with one maximum-diversity ectomycorrhizal fungi formulation. Designed for ease and efficiency of application, MycoApply Injector Ecto is formulated for application via horticulture injection and dosing equipment, and features a very broad label, making this new product ideal for 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 seamlessly added to a production protocol by adding the inoculant directly into the injector stock tank. Then the suspension can be applied to the crop via boom spray, sprinkler, drip irrigation, hand spray, deep root feeding/soil injection, in-furrow, or any method that effectively drenches the crop plant’s root zone to get the spores into direct contact with the growing roots.
MycoApply Injector Ecto is now available starting Fall 2020, and features five species of ectomycorrhizae: Pisolithus tinctorius, Laccaria laccata, Scleroderma cepa, Rhizopogon villosulus, and Suillus granulatus. These soil organisms benefit about 10% of plant species, and are included at a very high concentration of 37,675,000 Ecto Spores per gram (17,089,078,600 Spores per lb.). This new addition to the MycoApply® lineup is a concentrated ectomycorrhizal fungi powder formulation on a soluble humic carrier, sold in 100-gram bags with a 20-gram scoop included. MycoApply Injector Ecto 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 Ecto can treat 500 gallons of application solution.
Ectomycorrhizal fungi 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 plants' nutrients and water efficiency. Data shows that mycorrhizal fungi 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.
