Groundwork BioAg, Ltd. produces cost-effective mycorrhizal inoculants for commercial agriculture. Based on beneficial fungi, mycorrhizal inoculants significantly increase crop yields, especially under stress conditions. Growers can also reduce fertilizer application rates, notably phosphorus. Groundwork BioAg’s Rootella™ products are pure mycorrhizal inoculants, 100% natural and highly-effective.
Mycorrhiza is a symbiotic relationship between 90% of all plant species and fungi. The microscopic fungi latch onto plant roots and effectively extend them in an underground web. They physically access nutrients that are out of the root’s reach, and chemically break down unavailable, bound nutrients, especially phosphorus. Plants have benefited from mycorrhiza over the last 400 million years – but modern cultivation techniques deplete the natural mycorrhiza in your soil.
Mycorrhizal inoculation by application of Rootella™ products restores the mycorrhizal balance and significantly improves plant nutrient uptake. This provides a wide scope of benefits to farmers:
· Significant crop yield increase
· Fertilizer savings (especially phosphorus)
· Resilience to stress (e.g. drought, salinity, acidity)
Groundwork BioAg’s Rootella™ mycorrhizal inoculants have demonstrated impressive field trial results in several major crops, such as corn, soybean, tomato and onion. Rootella™ products are 10-100X higher in concentration than most competitive mycorrhizal inoculants. High product concentration enables high efficacy - high enough to enable effective seed treatment application, making Rootella™ products ideal for commercial agriculture.
