RHIZO-MIC UG offers soil inocula containing arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi without and with mycorrhizal helper bacteria. Arbuscular mycorrhiza is the symbiosis between fungi of the Glomeromycota phylum and plant roots. It has benefits for both partners. In the symbiosis the plant contributes carbohydrates that are indispensable to the survival of the fungus whereas the fungus channels soil nutrients to the roots and aids the plant in resisting abiotic and biotic stresses, like salinity, drought, non-balanced soil nutrient conditions, nematode attacks and root pathogens.
RHIZO-VAM BASIC is a non-water soluble granular product based on porous expanded clay, which is most suitable to be mixed with planting and potting substrates in nurseries, and which can be used at transplanting situations. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal spores and infection units are fixed on and in the granules and can survive long time.
RHIZO-VAM POW is a water soluble product with in-vitro produced propagules of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Rhizoglomus intraradices. This product contains also mycorrhizal helper bacteria of several genera, which are know to support the functions of arbuscular mycorrhiza (see Frey-Klett et al. 2007. New Phytol. 176, 22-36)
RHIZO-MIC UG’s plant biostimulants contain beneficial rhizosphere microorganism and natural substances that are known to vitalize plants, to stimulate root and plant growth, to increase tolerance of plants to abiotic and biotic stresses, to improve natural processes in plants for more efficient nutrient uptake, and to improve crop quality in a natural way.
RHIZO-MIC UG products are either applied to soil, plant roots, seed or tubers, or to the foliage of plants and crops.
®BACTOLiVE and DYNOCARP are registered trade marks of RHIZO-MIC UG; COMCAT is a registered trade mark of Agrarforum GmbH
Soil microorganisms interact on root surface (rhizosphere) with nutrient uptake processes and plant self defence processes (plant strengthening and plant vitalization). Also soil microorganisms improve soil health and soil structure (in foto, the microorganisms in rhizosphere, are stained blue and green to make them visible).
