The spores of MycorDip Pt. are mixed with natural Yucca, seaweed extract and humic acids to enhance drought tolerance and root growth. It also contains six species of free-living rhizosphere bacteria that together fix nitrogen and solubilize phosphorus.

Uses

For use as an ectomycorrhizal root dip for the inoculation of specific tree species such as Birch and Beech. Contains fungi, hydrogel, and organic biocatalysts to improve transplant survival and subsequent growth.

Benefits

  • Minimizes transplant shock.
  • Improves establishment and survival rates.
  • Improvement of water- and nutrient absorption.
