We purchase insurance for our cars, our houses, and ourselves. What about for the trees and shrubs we install? Naturally you want your landscape installations to have the best opportunity to succeed.
You choose healthy stock plants, insure proper planting depth, and choose the ideal location. However, after you leave the job site, care of the plant is often then left to the property owner, and here is when most plants fail. Plants succumb for a variety of reasons including over or under-watering, shock of transplant stress, and lack of proper nutrition. Wouldn’t it be great if you could leave behind something that would help insure against common plant neglect? This is where mycorrhizae play an essential role.
Applying a MycoApply® mycorrhizal product to established or newly transplanted plants can result in a wide range of benefits to the plant’s health, such as increased water uptake, healthier soils, increased nutrient accumulation, and transplant survival.
Mycorrhizae help increase your plants establishment and growth, greatly extend the roots’ surface area, and provide stress resistance. The presence of mycorrhizae results in healthier plants.
Mycorrhizal benefits include:
- Improved transplant survival and growth
- More effective rooting
- Improved soil structure
- Increased fertilizer utilization
- Decreased drought stress
- Tolerance of environmental extremes
- Reduced off-site pollution of surface and groundwater
- Improved germination
