Nut Tree Orchards

Nut Tree Orchards are a unique and important sector of the green industries, with very specialized crops, precision cultivation practices, and high-demand, high-value crops.  The tools offered by Mycorrhizal Applications offer unique benefits to permanent crops like tree orchards, and many of the common nut tree species cultivated in the US and internationally are mycorrhizal, though some nut species are endomycorrhizal and others are ectomycorrhizal.  It is important to know which mycorrhizal association the trees you are growing will require.

Ectomycorrhizal Nut Trees:

Three key nut tree species are ectomycorrhizal: Hazelnuts, Pecans, and Chestnuts.

The ideal ectomycorrhizal inoculant product for large-scale cultivation is MycoApply® Injector Ecto.

MycoApply Injector Ecto contains a diverse selection of ectomycorrhizal fungi species on a soluble humic carrier, formulated for maximum application efficiency. Ectomycorrhizal fungi form a symbiotic relationship with the tree’s root system and form a root and mycelial network within the surrounding soils. This enhanced network improves plant vigor by expanding the root system’s ability to efficiently absorb water and nutrients under variable environmental conditions throughout the entire crop cycle.

Endomycorrhizal Nut Trees:

The following key nut tree species are ectomycorrhizal: Almonds, Walnuts, Pistachio, Brazil Nuts, and Macadamia Nuts.

The ideal endomycorrhizal inoculant product for large-scale nut tree cultivation is MycoApply® Injector Endo.

MycoApply Injector Endo contains a diverse selection of endomycorrhizal fungi species on a soluble humic carrier, formulated for maximum application efficiency. Ectomycorrhizal fungi form a symbiotic relationship with the tree’s root system and form a root and mycelial network within the surrounding soils. This enhanced network improves plant vigor by expanding the root system’s ability to efficiently absorb water and nutrients under variable environmental conditions throughout the entire crop cycle.

Farmers Growing Multiple Nut Tree Species:

Some nut tree farmers may be cultivating multiple species of nut trees that are in both the endomycorrhizal and ectomycorrhizal nut tree lists above.  In that case, an inoculant that contains both endo- and ectomycorrhizae can by used to avoid purchasing multiple products to treat multiple tree species.  The best options for this circumstance are: MycoApply Ultrafine Endo/Ecto or MycoApply Soluble MAXX
