Endo Mycorrhizae Fungal Inoculation – Item of the day

Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Endo Mycorrhizae Fungal Inoculation from Sustainable Agricultural Technologies, Inc.  I have tried a lot of mycorrhizae products and settled on this one due to quality and price.  So exactly what are mycorrhizal fungi?

Mycorrhizal fungi form symbiotic associations with over 90% of the world’s plant species. They are particularly effective for agricultural plants that have high water and nutritional needs. Mycorrhizal fungi make nutrients available to growing plants, absorb water, retard disease, and condition soil.

Research has documented improved plant nutrient and water uptake and resistance to a wide range of soil diseases and environmental extremes. Plants establish and yield more abundantly and require less intensive care. Over 50,000 University studies have highlighted the benefits of mycorrhizal colonization on the health and yield of plants. What is Mycorrhizae? “Mycor” – “rhiza” literally means “fungus” – “root” and defines the mutually beneficial relationship between the plant and root fungus.

These specialized fungi colonize plant roots and extent far into the soil. Mycorrhizal fungal filaments in the soil are truly extensions of root systems and are more effective in nutrient and water absorption than the roots themselves.  Translation when you use this stuff it makes your plants more productive and more resistant to stress.

This product is available in three different package…

  • One pound for 19.95
  • Two pounds for 36.00 (18.00 a pound)
  • Eight pounds for 127.45  (15.95 a pound)

Think really hard before going for that 8 pounder!  This stuff goes a long way.  I just use a sprinkle on the roots of transplants, and about two tablespoons on the roots of larger trees when I am planting them.  To put it in perspective if you wanted to broadcast it on a full acre for land restoration, (not a terrible idea) you would use a rate of 10 pounds to the acre.  If we take that down to the typical garden, a pound or two goes a long way.

I’ve not found anything that makes as dramatic a difference on a plants ability to develop massive and healthy roots as this stuff does.  This particular product is a combination of 4 species endo mycorrhizae which I prefer to single species varieties.  It is also one of the most cost effective products by price per pound I have found.  If you want to give your plants a tremendous advantage this season give Mycorrhizae Fungal Inoculation from Sustainable Agricultural Technologies, Inc. a shot this season.

      First you can sprinkle a few tablespoons around your new trees and water in, it is fungus it knows what to do, but it would be better right on the roots.

      Storage life, personally I would contact the company and ask them. I may do so later cause it is a good question. I would think life should be pretty long but I buy it and use it every spring. I always run out.

    • The seller says 2 years if kept dry.

  2. I just ordered some! We have a large market garden and I can use all the help I can get ;). Thanks!

    This may be a newbie question, but I was curious if it is advisable to use the Endo Mycorrhizae Fungi on root crops like potatoes, carrots, or Jerusalem Artichoke. I’m going to be establishing new raised beds this year and just curious if I should omit the fungi from certain portions of the beds. Thanks for all you do Jack!
