AgroMyc-Merck GmbH is your global and highly competent partner when it comes to Mycorrhiza soil conditioners
AgroMyc-Merck GmbH is a Hamburg-based company, which has been focusing on the production and marketing of mycorrhiza spores since 2012. Together with our highly experienced scientific Partners. We can look back on decades of experience, scientific studies and field Trials. Those allow us to produce a High Quality product for the national and international markets under greenhouse conditions.
We have deliberately opted for Germany as a production location, as we can use our scientific partners and supervisors to best meet and control quality standards. We are not focused on a short term business, but the delivery of world class products to our customers, who value long-term. Business relationships focused on creating partnerships and synergies.

Mycorrhiza - Symbiosis between plant and fungus:
Mycorrhiza is a lifeblood between fungi and plant roots, which makes life easier for both organisms. In biology such a life-community is also called “mycorrhizal symbiosis”. Each partner benefits from each other. The fungus absorbs valuable vitamins and sugars from the root cells of the plant, which the plant itself cannot produce because it lacks the necessary chlorophyll.
The plant receives in turn water and nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus from the fungus braid, as the fungi can better brake up nutrients and water in the soil. The subterranean fungus (mycelium) grows with the root of the plant and thus increases its root surface. The plant has now the possibility to cover a more extensive area and penetrate deeper into the ground. It is better fed and is more resistant to weathering, pathogens and pests due to its good nutrition.
Even un-favourable environmental conditions such as high salt concentrations and longer lasting dryness in the soil are better tolerated by the plant with the help of the fungus. A simple test with a garden cress with a mycorrhised expanded clay (AGROMYC® VITAL) and with sterile swelling (see picture below) shows after just a few days, that the cress seed seeded with mycorrhiza has larger roots and is considerably stronger.
What is Mycorrhiza?
About 85% of all examined botanical species are infect-able by the ubiquitär seeming Mycorrhiza fungus
