Benefits of Mycorrhizae

Mycorrhizae: a fungus that grows in a symbiotic relationship with a plant’s roots.

  • Mycorrhizae increase the surface area of a plant’s roots.
  • The increased surface area of the roots aids in the absorption of nutrients and water that may not otherwise be available to the plant.
  • Or we may say… aid/help the plants roots to grow larger making it easier for them to find/absorb nutrients.
  • The result is a stronger plant that is better able to reduce/withstand stress.
  • Mycorrhizae may even aid in the protection of the host plant against harmful/unwanted pathogens.
  • May aid the plant in reaching its full genetic potential.
  • Mycorrhizae release enzymes into the soil helping to absorb “bound up” minerals, particularly organic forms making them more available to the plant.
  • Another way may be to say that mycorrhizae are effective in mobilizing nutrients in the soil (that may otherwise be unavailable to the plants).
  • Mycorrhizae play an important role in plant nutrition.
  • Mycorrhizae may lead to an increased tolerance to salt by the plant.

Benefits of Bat Guano:

  • Bat guano has a high organic matter content which helps to retain moisture.
  • Has a high beneficial microbial activity which helps to resist pathogens and harmful organisms in the soil.
  • Contains, on average NPK levels of 7-3-1

Benefits of Kelp Meal:

  • Kelp contains over 70 vitamins, minerals, growth hormones, enzymes and proteins. These include auxins, gibberellins and cytokines.
  • Aids in building and supporting the plants natural immune system. This aids in its ability to resist disease, insects, frost and drought.
  • Boosts nutrient uptake through chelating of minerals.
  • Promotes seed germination.
  • Promotes cell division.

Benefits of Neam Seed Meal:

  • Enhances the efficiency of nitrogen acting as a denitrification inhibitor.
  • Improves the organic matter content of the soil, water holding capacity and soil aeration leading to better root development.
  • Contains a high degree of macro and micronutrients including nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, zinc, copper, calcium, magnesium, manganese and sulfur.
  • Promotes healthy microbial/microflora activity.
  • Where already present it may increase earthworm numbers and productivity significantly.

Benefits of Magnesium Sulfate:

  • Magnesium is the primary nutrient involved in chlorophyll production which helps plants to grow fuller and produce more flowers.
  • Aids in the activation of plant enzymes and contributes to protein synthesis.

Benefits of Molasses:

  • Molasses is a source of potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron and minerals.
  • The carbohydrates and sugars nourish the microbes in the soil increasing overall microbial activity.
  • Aids in the production of flowers and fruit.
  • Molasses acts as a chelating agent making nutrients more available.

Benefits of Montmorillonite Clay/Volcanic Ash:

  • It is a naturally occurring clay containing calcium which is used in building cell wall structure. Calcium deficiencies result in distorted growth from improper cell wall formation.
  • Volcanic ash provides the same benefits of glacial rock dust for the plants and soil.
