Mycorrhiza and Tomatoes

Research shows the benefit of mycorrrhiza application in tomato production. Mycorrhiza raise harvest by increasing plant grow (+30%) and percentage of large fruits (+76%) and extra-large fruits (+44 %) as well as earlier yield1.

Especially when tomatoes are produced for industrial processing a high fruit quality, tastefulness and rich flavour is appreciated. Taste and flavour is particularly increased by higher sugar content in the fruits3. Research shows that tomatoes in symbioses with mycorrrhiza have a higher content of vitamin C (+23%)1 and Lycopene2, also the content of sugars (fructose and glucose)2 is increased.

 

Mycorrhiza plant fertilizer increase harvest yield

Since about 40 years now the team play between Mycorrhiza-fungi and plants is of particular interest to science. Today you can benefit from this symbiosis and naturally stimulate growth and efflorescence of your plants.

The name Mycorrhiza is composed of the Greek words mýkēs ('fungus') and rhíza ('root'). Out in nature 'mycorrhizal' species and plant roots form a symbiotic relationship for mutual benefit. Fossil records have shown that this partnership developed about 500 million years ago, along with the colonisation of the dry land by the first plants.

Mycorrhiza boosts root growth, improves nutrient uptake, leaf growth and flowering and raises crop yields of 95% of all crop and decorative plants while reducing repotting stress, water- and fertiliser consumption as well as drought stress.

We offer Mycorrhiza products for hobbyists and for professional users in four variations; as granular, powder to solubilize, seed inoculant and as tablets.

Application is easy, the cost are only few cents per plant!
