Hempgro Myco is a highly concentrated mycorrhizal fungus used in agriculture and horticulture as a soil inoculant. It is a water-soluble powder which can be applied via soil irrigation and directly into the root zone, making it a quickly effective and easily absorbed inoculant. Hempgro Myco has been tested in silty, sandy, peat, and clay with spectacular results. Natural and organic, Effective, easy to use formula, Safe for the environment, Non-toxic and biocompatible
APPLICATION: Mix with Hempgro Veg Blend at 1 lb. per acre and apply one time at planting.
INGREDIENTS: Hempgro Myco uses concentrated Rhizophagus irregularis (formerly known as Glomus intraradicies), an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus, to properly promote root growth and provide protection in the rhizosphere.
PRODUCT COMPOSITION CHEMICAL/COMPONENT NAME: Rhizophagus irregularis (fka Glomus intraradices)
SAFETY & ENVIRONMENTAL INFO: Best land management practices should be used at all times with any fertilizer; this material should be prevented from entering public or private water supplies (including wells) and any lake, stream, or river. This product is made from naturally derived ingredients and is non-toxic.
MODE OF ACTION: Mycorrhizae symbiotically bond to the roots, then grow on and expand the roots overall surface area, thus increasing the root system’s ability to hold more water and nutrients. This protective coating of beneficial fungi shields the root zone from pathogens and feeds off of the starch exudates excreted from the plant’s roots. In exchange, the mycorrhizal colony provides a bio-available phosphorus plant food. Rhizophagus irregularis colonization tends to peak earlier than many other fungi in the Glomus genus. It provides extensive hyphal networking and intense intraradical spores associated with older roots of host plants. Rhizophagus irregularis colonizes new plants by means of spores, hyphae or fragments of roots colonized by the fungus. It is important to know that most cultivated plants form mycorrhizal symbiotic relationships, but there are a few plants that do not and will not benefit from soil inoculation. Examples of such plants are: all plants from the Brassica family (Cabbage, Kale, Mustard, etc.), Beets, Blueberries, Cranberries, Orchids, Rhododendrons, Sedges, and Spinach.
• Enhances phosphorus intake
• Stimulates root growth; thereby aiding in crop health
• Produces its own food from plant waste
• Improves soil properties, such as soil aggregation due to hyphae
• Provides essential elements for crop growth
