Endomycorrhizal Fungi

Endomycorrhizal Fungi

  • Description

Americans buy here

Endomycorrhizal fungi form mutually beneficial relationships with over 90% of plants, including: most annuals, herbs, flowers, and vegetables; turf grasses and ornamental grasses; ferns; perennial flowers; most fruit trees; most deciduous and broadleaf evergreen ornamental trees and shrubs.

Myke Pro WP, also sold as Myke Pro Turf or Greenhouse, is a highly concentrated powder form, used for seeding, laying sod, taking cuttings, potting up, and planting, transplanting, or dividing plants, or watering into established lawns and gardens when you know that you don't also need ectomycorrhizal fungi.

One 600 g bag can be mixed with 50 gal (200 liters) of water, and will cover more than 20,000 sq ft of turf or up to 800 two-gallon plants. You only need a teaspoon of powder per tree, a pinch per shrub or flower, and a quick root dip for a vegetable start.

Application rates for powdered endo (Myke Pro WP):

Mix with tepid water to avoid temperature shock, or mix into compost for even distribution in the soil.

If mixing with water, use 200 liters for a full bag of 600g, or 100 liters for 300g, or 50 liters for the starter size of 150g; generally, a heaping tablespoon of powder (30g) in 10 liters of water will cover 1,000 square feet. Start by pre-mixing the powder with a small amount of water and dilute gradually.

Keep agitating the tank (or shake the watering can or spray bottle) so the product stays in suspension when using a sprayer. Should the spray equipment become clogged, remove the filter or adjust the nozzle to make larger drops.

Applying the liquid:

  • 50 ml per cutting
  • 80 ml per 4" pot
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) per 1gal container
  • 250 ml (1 cup) per 2gal container
  • 625 ml (2 1/2 cups) per 5gal container
  • 1250 ml (5 cups) per 10gal container

Or pour into trenches or holes around plant root zones at approximately these rates.

Applying to turf:

Use 30g (a heaping tablespoon) of powder mixed with 10 liters of water per 1,000 square feet. 150g covers 5,000 sq ft; 300g covers 10,000 sq ft; 600g covers 20,000 sq ft. Especially effective after aeration, before backfilling with compost.

When seeding turf, mix dry powder uniformly with seeds at 30g per 1,000 sq ft.

Applying dry powder to plants and soil:

Use approximately one teaspoon per tree, a pinch per shrub or flower, or a quick root dip for a vegetable start. It is easier to mix the product with finely screened compost or dry soil for even distribution.
