AMF BLEND contains a diverse combination of beneficial mycorrhizal fungi species to help improve nutrient efficiency, drought tolerance and maximize yield potential. These beneficial fungi rapidly establish a symbiotic relationship with your plants roots, producing hyphae that can access small soil spaces that root hairs can’t. These hyphae expand beyond the root zone, increasing the root surface area by as much as 50 times and producing enzymes that release bio-available nutrients to your plants.
Here's how these fungi positively affect plants when introduced at the time of transplanting:
Enhanced Nutrient Uptake: AMF extend the root's ability to access nutrients from the soil, particularly phosphorus. Their extensive hyphal networks can reach areas far beyond the root's immediate vicinity, allowing the plant to access a wider range of nutrients. This is especially beneficial right after transplanting, as it helps the plant to quickly establish in a new environment.
Improved Water Absorption: The hyphae of AMF can absorb water more efficiently than roots alone. This can be particularly beneficial in conditions where water is scarce or in soils that don’t retain water well. By improving water uptake, AMF help plants to better withstand drought and stress after transplantation.
Disease Resistance: AMF can enhance a plant's resistance to root pathogens and diseases. They create a physical barrier around roots and also induce systemic resistance in the plant, making it less susceptible to various soil-borne diseases, which is crucial during the vulnerable phase of transplantation.
Soil Structure Improvement: These fungi help in aggregating soil particles, thus improving soil structure. Better soil structure enhances root penetration and aeration, facilitating better growth conditions for the newly transplanted plants.
Reduced Transplant Shock: AMF aid in reducing transplant shock, a common issue where plants temporarily slow down growth or suffer damage due to the change in environment. The symbiotic relationship helps the plants to adapt more quickly to their new soil conditions.
Enhanced Stress Tolerance: Plants with AMF have shown increased tolerance to various environmental stresses, including salinity, heavy metals, and extreme temperatures. This is especially beneficial in harsh or polluted environments.
WHAT'S IN IT?
Four species of arbuscular endomycorrhizal fungi (AMF). Glomus intraradices, Glomus mosseae, Glomus aggregatum, Glomus etunicatum
HOW SHOULD I USE IT?
In order to be the most effective the spores in AMF blend need to make contact with roots.
The Best time to apply AMF is when transplanting rooted seedlings/clones. In a small container, make a slurry using AMF and water, dip the roots into the slurry, to get an even coating and then plant. Additionally, you can also sprinkle a small amount (1-2tsp) into the planting hole when transplanting or directly onto the exposed roots of a transplant. It can also be used as a Seed Treatment for Fertigation/Soil Application and Liquid Injection.
