Mycormax

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

Mycorrhizae are symbiotic associations that form be-tween the roots of most plant species and fungi. The term Mycorrhiza literally means “fungus root”. It was estimated that 95% of all plant species belong to the gen-era that form Mycorrhizae.

 

 

Little things run the world and this is especially true when it comes to getting plants established. Under natu-ral conditions, plants live in close association with My-corrhizae. Estimates of mycorrhizal filaments present in healthy soil are astonishing. Several kilometres of fila-ments can be present in less than a thimbleful of soil associated with growing plants.

 

 

Mycormax contains both endo and ecto mycorrhizae, meaning the fungi can enter the root system (endo) to help increase the flow of nutrients from the soil as well as cover the root system (ecto) protecting it from the harshness of soil micro fauna and flora.

 

Mycormax is ideal for all crops as over ninety five (95%) percent of crops not only respond positively to coloniza-tion by Mycorrhizal fungi, but they may suffer in the ab-sence of mycorrhizae.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           ADVANTAGES & BENEFITS


 Mycorrhizal root systems increase the absorbing area of roots 10 to 1000 times thereby greatly improving the ability of the plants to utilise the soil resources.

The fungi in Mycormax are able to absorb and transfer fifteen (15) major macro and micro nutrients required for plant growth. Mycorrhizal fungi release powerful chemicals into the soil that dissolve hard to capture nu-trients such as Phosphorous.

 

The Mycorrhizal fungi in Mycormax also improve soil structure. The intricate web of hyphae produced by these organisms also produces humic compounds and

 

“glomalin” which is a soil glue. This glue binds soils into aggregates and improves soil porosity.

 

Mycormax can be used on: wine grapes, table grapes, deciduous fruits, nuts, citrus, raspberries, cotton, vegeta-bles, asparagus, corn, carrots, onions, garlic, capsicums, potatoes, tomatoes, melons, legumes, sorghum, turf grass, ornamental, horticultural, and nursery plants.

 

COMPATIBILITY

 

Mycormax may be rendered ineffective in the presence of high rates of phosphorous fertiliser. This biological product may be killed if combined with fungicides, soil fumigants, aqueous ammonia, phosphoric acid, or sul-phuric acid.

 

 

If applied with large doses of fertilisers, there is a possi-bility of salt toxicity to the beneficial fungi.
