AGROMYC®VITAL: A 100% ecological and organic Product
Our Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are a natural tonic for your plants: strong roots – more vital plants
How does it work? The fungi colonise the plants’s root tissues and penetrate some root cells. They supply to the plants water and mineral nutrients, whereas the plants supply organic molecules made by photosynthesis to the fungi. As a result, the plants become healthier, bigger, more resistent to harsh conditions and more productive.
We aim for one thing with our products: to be very close to your success. We interpret our position as a responsible role model for quality products. That is why we want to be one step ahead in communication: very close to you. Please tell us what we can do better and what you want. We’re working with your criticism so you can work better with our products.
Mycorrhiza - Symbiosis between plant and fungus:
Mycorrhiza is 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 the other. The fungus absorbs valuable vitamins and sugars from the root cells of the plant, which the fungus itself cannot produce because it lacks the necessary chlorophyll.
The plant in turn receives water and nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus from the fungus braid, as the fungi can better break 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 now has the ability to cover a more extensive area and penetrate deeper into the soil. It is better fed and is more resistant to weathering, pathogens, and pests due to its good nutritional status.
Even unfavourable 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 test with strawberry plants with a mycorrhized expanded clay (AGROMYC® VITAL) and with sterile swelling (see picture beside) shows that the strawberry plant seeded with mycorrhiza has larger roots and is considerably stronger..
