MYKOS® & AZOS® 

 

What is AZOS?

 

AZOS, our brand of Azospirillum brasiliense, is a nitrogen-fixing bacteria

that can provide nitrogen required by plants, greatly decreasing the need

for additional nitrogen applications.

 

Key Benefits Provided by AZOS:

 

  • Greatly lowers the need for additional nitrogen applications

  • Reduces costs to maintain healthy, beautiful landscapes

  • Accelerates establishment rates

  • Increases drought and stress tolerance

  • Provides noticeable results shortly after application

 

 

What is MYKOS?

 

MYKOS is an arbuscular mycorrhizal inoculant. Averaging 3,000 spores per 50 ml sample, Mykos provides both the quality and quantity that plants require for effective mycorrhizal colonization. Our chosen Rhizophagus intraradices species is considered to be the most efficient, high yielding strain of mycorrhizae produced. Our Mykos are fresh, pure and alive when purchased for your field.

 

Key Benefits Provided by MYKOS:

 

  • Superior nutrient management: MYKOS act as the “quarterback” of the soil microbe team, and direct the activity of many beneficial microbes. They barter for nutrients from these microbes on behalf of the plant. Mykos transport food in the form of carbohydrates to these microbes, and return the requested nutrients back to the plant, in a form that is immediately available.

 

  • Faster growth: plants inoculated with MYKOS have the ability to focus their energy on growing.  The mycorrhizae have provided them with a larger, more efficient root system, and has taken on the job of obtaining nutrients and water.  The plant can now channel its energy to developing roots and top growth.

 

  • Increased drought resistance/water efficiency: the extensive root mass created by Mykos will reach beyond the natural root system and deliver distant water reserves back to the plant. 

 

  • Improved soil texture: the hyphae, produced by Mykos, excrete “glomalin”, a sticky substance that molds together the individual particles of sand, silt, and clay, along with plant debris and other organic matter, to form soil aggregates. The space between these particles is oxygen-rich and important for healthy microbial activity.

 

  • Decreased fertilizer needs: the extensive root systems created by Mykos allow access to distant stockpiles of soil nutrients, maximizing their availability to the plant.  As a result, these landscapes will require less fertilizer applications.
