Mycorrhizal fungi occur naturally in many soils, but their presence is often lacking where they are needed most. This includes sterile growing media, fumigated or pasteurized soil, cut and fill leveling, and flooded or fallow areas.
The Ascend line of mycorrhizal inoculants are designed to put mycorrhizal fungi into areas where it is absent or has been destroyed. This increases the inoculated plant’s ability to survive and prosper in these induced stress conditions.
The root mass of the plant will increase in size and longevity as the mycorrhizal fungi send out additional hyphae that act as a secondary root system. The additional hyphae from the mycorrhizal fungi can increase the root surface area by 10 to 1,000 times. This gives your plants up to 1,000 more opportunities to find additional water and nutrients in the soil.
Increasing a plant’s ability to absorb more nutrients can lead to many advantages for your operation.
Owners and operators of farms, ornamental nurseries, golf courses, agricultural production nurseries, land and tree care operations, municipal parks, and greenhouse operations are already discovering the economic and production advantages of using Ascend products.
– BioSci offers the Ascend Mycorrhizal Inoculants in three formats –
Dry powder best suited for nurseries and small farm use. Powder should be kept cool and out of direct sunlight until use.
Two-part kit comprised of a dry powder and a liquid carrier that accelerates the spore germination. The dry powder is added to the liquid carrier just prior to field application to extend the shelf life of the product and to ensure best application through drip systems for an even application rate. Powder should be kept cool and out of direct sunlight until use.
Special dry powder carrier designed to improve adherence to seeds so spores stay near the emerging roots giving an increased likelihood of germinating and attaching to the young roots. Powder should be kept cool and out of direct sunlight until use.
