Mycotrex is a Mycorrhiza inoculum that consists of a mixture of 9 different types of mycorrhiza spores. It consists of spores of the genus Glomus claroideus, Glomus etunicatum, Glomus clarum, Glomus sp., Glomus microaggregatum, Glomus intraradices, Glomus mosseae, Glomus geosporum and Entrophospora colombiana. The combination of these spores will germinate and colonize the root system. In this way, the so-called vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizae become established, which will vastly increase the uptake capacity of the normal root system. In addition, the gossamer-thin hyphae penetrate far into the finest soil pores to convert and take up the available nutrients in the quantities needed for the plant. Countless studies around the world have conclusively shown that plants with a good mycorrhiza system have better growth and a higher survival value. They also take up more nutrients (e.g. phosphates and silicon). Finally, these plants have an highly improved water uptake and they retain the water for a longer time. Plants with a good mycorrhiza system are healthier and have better resistance against soil-borne diseases. Useful rhizobacteria and natural humic acids are also added to Mycotrex to promote the initial root development.
