Most mycorrhiza products sold today only contain endomycorrhiza which limits the spectrum of crops mycorrhiza can be used. MycoGold is a complete balanced mycorrhiza blend including endomycorrhiza, ectomycorrhiza, trichoderma and beneficial bacteria to increase plant compatibility and boost production.
Most soils in Australia have had their mycorrhizal population destroyed via over use of pesticides, fallow land, crop rotation and soil degradation. The loss of these mycorrhizal populations has increased the crops reliance on expensive inputs like fertiliser/pesticides and water. Replacing the mycorrhizal fungi can make the crop is less reliant on expensive inputs and still achieve maximum production.

• 200 grams or 1 kg foil protected resealable bags. Also in a 15 kg pail.
Turf / Lawns: Apply 1 – 2 g per 1 m² and water into soil profile. In high value or problem areas the rates may need to be increased to 10 g per 1 m².
Orchard / Vineyard: Apply 10 g per 1 m² around the active root zone(area irrigated normally about 1m² per plant) and water into soil profile.
Vegetables: 0.25 g per plant and water into soil profile.
Home Garden: Apply 10 – 50 g per 1 m² and water into soil profile.
Nursery: Apply 10 g per 1 m² and water into soil profile.
Potting Mix: 25 g per 25 L bag or 300 g per m³.
Transplanting: Apply/Dip to water damped roots until covered. Try to apply at least ¼ – 1 teaspoon per plant depending on transplant size.
Seedlings: 0.5 – 2 g per 10 seedling cells. Apply to surface and water into potting mix or apply via watering can.
Tree Planting: 5 g per tree placed directly under the root ball in the planting hole.
Tree Saplings (up to 1 year): 5 – 20 g per tree watered in around the root zone. Apply enough water to carry the mycorrhizal to the root zone.
Trees (Established): 5 g per 1 m². Apply enough water to carry the mycorrhizal to the root zone.
Agriculture Crops: 1 kg per hectare per year.
Agriculture Crops Liquid Inject: 50 – 150 grams per hectare.
Horticulure Crops: 1 kg per hectare per year.
Mycorrhizal Seed Inoculant: 1.5 – 2 kg per hectare. Can be applied as a seed coat or dry powder. To coat seed dampen seed with a fine mist of water while mixing in the powder. Apply no more than 3 litres of solution per tonne of seed for large size seed (grain legumes, cereals) and up to 1 L per 100 kg for small seed (clover, lucerne, ryegrass). Do not wet the seed so it sticks together.
• Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza (VAM) is now known as Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) as that describes this group of microbes more professionally.
• If applying to irrigation water ensure all filters are operational and emitters can handle 250 micron(about #70 US mesh) powder.
• Store in a cool dry area away and if possible put in the fridge(Not Freezer).
• Shelf-life of one year if stored in a cool dry area.
• Please wear a dust mask when using this product as it is a fine powder. Please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet (M.S.D.S) before handling. You can find the M.S.D.S here.
• Do not apply fungicides/pesticides with this product.
• Glomus mosseae is also known as Endogone mosseae. Glomus clarum is also known as Glomus clarus. Trichoderma harzianum is also known as Sporotrichum narcissi or Trichoderma lignorum var. narcissi or Trichoderma narcissi. Trichoderma koningii is also known as Acrostalagmus koningii. Bacillus subtilis is also known as Vibrio subtilis or Bacillus globigii.
