MYCORRHIZAL FUNGI (VESICULAR ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZAE)
Mycorrhizal fungi form symbiotic relationships with plants at the root level. These fungi enshroud and, in some case, penetrate the structure of plant roots to form an intimate connection that facilitates a 2-way nutrient exchange. The mycelium of mycorrhizal fungi essentially extend the roots system of their associated plants to help the plants easily draw in nutrients, minerals, and water from afar. In return, the mycorrhizal plant provides the fungus with photosynthesized sugars.
Improve plant root growth and development
Increase the uptake and mobilization of phosphate in all crops
Increase and facilitate nutrient and translocation from the soil and root cuticle parenchyma to xylem, Phloem, elements like nitrogen, potassium, Iron, manganese, magnesium, copper, zinc, boron, Sulphur and molybdenum
Effective in overcoming the stress condition like drought, disease incidence and deficiency of the crop
Enhance product quality and increase immune power of the crop
MYCORRHIZA supplement root hair in water absorption hence prevents reduction in crop relative water content of cells and helps to overcome drought.
Extension of Corn Root Surface Area through Mycorrhizal Fungi
Mycorrhizal organisms (fungi) shape relationship with the underlying foundations of plants, for example, with the corn developing in this outline. The growths associate with the root hairs of the corn and expand their hyphae through the soil, along these lines “broadening” the root surface territory of the plant. This gives a chance to exchange carbon and supplements with the organisms while additionally expanding the dependability of the soil and the dampness maintenance in the soil.
Mycorrhiza Application methods
The following table gives details on Application methods and doses for the different formulations
Mix Mycorrhiza with crude sugar in sufficient water to make a slurry and coat seeds and dry in shade and sow / broadcast / dibble in the field. Do not store treated / coated seeds more than 24 hrs.
Mycorrhiza can be used as under:
Mix at recommended doses with compost and apply at early life stages of crop along with other biofertilizers
Mix Mycorrhiza at recommended doses in sufficient water and drench soil at early leaf stage/ 2-4 leaf stage / early crop life cycle
Drip Irrigation: If there are insoluble particles, filter the solution and add to drip tank.
Long duration crops / Perennial / Orchard crops: Dissolve Mycorrhiza at recommended doses in sufficient water and apply as a drenching spray near root zone twice a year. It is recommended to have first application before the onset of the main monsoon / rainfall/ spring season and second application after the main monsoon / rainfall / autumn/ fall season.
Dosage and method of Application
Dosage : Mix 5ml of Mycorrhiza liquid in 1 Liter of water.
Foliar Spray : Prepare the spray fluid by mixing the Mycorrhiza liquid with water at the recommended rate. The requirement of the spray fluid volume varies with the crop canopy and the customary local practice. The spray should be done to the level of drip.
Shelf Life & Packaging
Shelf life : Best before 24 months, Stored in room temperature.
Packaging : 1 Kg. Pouch.
