Mycorrhizal Applications ... Accelerate Plant Growth
As the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of mycorrhizal inoculant products and ingredients, Mycorrhizal Applications (MA) researches, produces, and markets mycorrhizal fungi which accelerate plant vigor by greatly increasing the surface absorbing area of roots, producing a healthier root system. These specialized fungi colonize plant roots to create a symbiotic root-and-mycelial network within the surrounding soils, increasing efficiency in nutrient and water absorption to optimize plant performance. MA’s MycoApply® line of mycorrhizal inoculants is utilized by landscapers, farmers, forest nurseries, restoration & erosion control specialists, greenhouses, nurseries, soil media manufacturers, and professional horticulturalists to maximize plant success and improve return on investment.

ProGibb® LV Plus T&O
Actinovate® biological fungicides suppress and control root rot, damping-off fungi, and foliar fungal pathogens. Available in Retail (Actinovate® Lawn & Garden) or Professional (Actinovate® SP) formulations, the active ingredient is a patented bacterium that grows around the root system (when soil-drenched) and foliage of the plant (when sprayed on) while using several novel modes of anti-fungal action to protect plants and lawns. In addition, when applied to the soil, Actinovate Biofungicides break down minerals and micronutrients, making them more available to plants, resulting in increased size and vitality. Plants and turf treated with Actinovate as a soil drench will become hardier, more vigorous, and will have a robust and protected root system.
