Mycoterra has created a line of state-of-the-art biological stimulants that cleanse the soil, strengthen the roots and multiply production.
MycoTerra products are designed for the home gardener as well as the professional. They guarantee faster growth, accelerate post-transplant recovery, reduce the need for additives and multiply production; different microorganisms for different needs.
The species that make up the MycoTerra range have been selected to achieve the maximum potential of the plants and therefore a greater benefit.
The ancient power of nature unleashed on your harvest.
What are mycorrhizae?
The term mycorrhiza comes from the Greek words mykos (meaning fungus) and rhiza (meaning root). Mycorrhizal fungi are those that have developed a symbiotic (mutually beneficial) capacity with the root system of plants.
The root structure is covered with a network of mycorrhizal filaments from the time it is a small seedling, allowing the plant to better use water and nutrients from the soil. This relationship encourages vigorous and healthy natural growth.
Group of microorganisms that are normally located in different places of the bodies of multicellular living beings. They are frequently found in various parts of the body in healthy individuals.
It is the part of the soil immediately to the living roots and that is under the direct influence of these.
They are those beneficial fungi that form symbiotic interactions with plant roots that favor the intake of nutrients. So frost tolerance and protection against pathogens.
The fungus Glomus Iranicum
The capacity of the fungus Glomus Iranicum as a crop multiplier has been scientifically proven in multiple studies. It is an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (AMF) that contributes to improving the physicochemical conditions of the soil. It stimulates the growth and productivity of most plants. This species achieves an adequate symbiosis with most agricultural plants. Even under the conditions of intensive agricultural management.
In horticultural crops, it promotes significant increases in physiological activity and productivity. 10 to 15% of the treated plants, grown both in the greenhouse and in the open field.
Under growing conditions in peat-based substrate, the results are spectacular. As they are disinfected substrates, colonizing fungi have no competition and reproduce quickly.
Fungus Penicillium Chrysogenu
Common fungus applied in bioagriculture as a phosphorus solubilizer present in a wide variety of habitats. It is most commonly found in moist soils with abundant amounts of carbon and nitrogen.
Fungus Trichoderma Harzianum
Fungus present in fertile soils that rapidly colonizes plant roots. It attacks, parasitizes and/or feeds on other fungi for which it is used in foliar applications, seed and soil treatment to control various diseases caused by pathogenic fungi. Its efficacy in the control of Botrytis, Fusarium and Penicillium has been demonstrated. It is also used for the manufacture of enzymes.
Plant biostimulant microorganism that produces physiologically active substances that promote an increase in plant biomass and agricultural yield in crops. Some of these substances are growth regulators (auxins and cytokinins), amino acids, low molecular weight peptides and vitamins. This specific species, according to Finlayson, et al, (2014), is an excellent growth biostimulator.
Acinetobacter Johnson II
Useful microorganisms as solubilizers of insoluble phosphorus present in the soil. This is a process of extreme importance for arable soils, since they contain more and more non-soluble phosphorus every day, accumulated over the years due to the excessive application of phosphoric fertilizers of chemical origin and which can only be recovered through action of solubilizing microorganisms. In peat-based substrates, the solubilization of phosphorus causes better rooting and larger flowers.
Genus of bacteria that promotes the growth of the most studied plants. It is considered a free-living soil bacterium that has the ability to affect the growth of numerous agricultural crops through the excretion of various hormones and the bacteria's ability to fix nitrogen.
Candida Boidini II and Nocardiopsis Alba
They are a yeast and an actinomycete that play a vital role in the detoxification of soils through the hydrolysis of phenolic compounds, toxic exudates from metabolism and the active formation of biofilms based on sur
