Grow Safe Mycorrhizal Fungi

Unlock the potential of your crops with Grow Safe Mycorrhizal Fungi Inoculations, designed to enhance nutrient uptake and bolster plant resilience from the roots up.

Mycorrhizal Fungi

Mycorrhizal fungi are essential symbiotic organisms that partner with the majority of plant roots, enhancing nutrient uptake and providing resilience against environmental stresses. Mycorrhizal fungi play a major role in nutrient recycling, alongside other soil microbes such as actinomycetes, bacteria, protozoa and beneficial nematodes.

Soil microbes regulate fertility through their involvement in various activities such as decomposing organic matter, storing & mineralising of nutrients, enhancing plant accessibility of water & nutrients and guarding the rhizosphere from phytopathogenic microbes. 

Mycorrhizal fungi can be very beneficial in boosting agricultural productivity, yet are susceptible to management practices including ag-chemical use, such as fungicides, and nutrient management, such as excessive nitrates or phosphates. 

At Grow Safe®, we offer freeze-dried soil microbe inoculations containing Mycorrhizal fungi and supporting bacteria, to enhance colonisation, improve NUE and foster more resilient plants.

Why Grow Safe Microbes?

Grow Safe® ‘s flagship freeze-dried biological product, Premium Ag, contains four strains of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, including  Rhizophagus irregularis, Glomus mosseae, Glomus etunicatum and Glomus aggregatum. With concentrations expressed as Colony Forming Units, this product also includes supporting bacteria such as Pseudomonas, Azotobacter and Bacillus.

Grow Safe® Microbes can assist with:

Improved Soil Health

The unique formulations of Grow Safe® microbial products increase the biological activity within the soil. This leads to better soil aggregate stability, enhanced water infiltration, and increased storage capacities for carbon and nitrogen.

Increased Plant Resilience

By enhancing the natural symbiotic relationship between plants and mycorrhizal fungi, our products promote greater resistance to abiotic stresses such as drought and salinity, as well as biotic stresses like root pathogens.

Greater Yields

Independent trials identified a yield increase ranging from 10% – 17% in typical growing conditions with the addition of Grow Safe® microbes.

Enhanced Carbon Sequestration

Our products boost the natural process of carbon capture in soil, building soil structure and providing environmental benefits. The presence of mycorrhizal fungi is crucial in this process, as they help in transferring carbon deeper into the soil, away from surface decomposition.

Grow Safe Products

For many farmers, the most convenient application of Mycorrhizal fungi and supporting bacteria is to opt for the Grow Safe® microbe coating with their fertiliser order. Grow Safe® Premium Ag is used for fertiliser coating, while also available as a standalone product for seed coating (with the MicroSTIX2 binding polymer) as well as a liquid foliar or soil drench.  

For the specific management of bacterial pathogens, Grow Safe® offers Trichoderma Plus, containing Trichoderma viride and Trichoderma harzianum, applied via liquid foliar or soil drench. 

Depending on seasonal availability, Grow Safe® can also provide isolated Mycorrhizal fungi booster packs to supplement fertiliser or seed coating. To find out more, contact us or book an appointment with a Grow Safe® Field Advisor.

Premium Ag

The Grow Safe® flagship microbial concentrate, used for seed and fertiliser coating, as well as foliar and soil drench applications.

Mycorrhizal Fungi FAQs

Mycorrhizal fungi are a type of fungi that form symbiotic relationships with most plant roots. They help plants absorb nutrients and water from the soil and can enhance plant resilience against environmental stresses.

Our products contain specific strains of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi along with a supportive suite of minerals and microbes that increase the natural colonisation and efficiency of these fungi in the soil.

Grow Safe® products are versatile and can be used in a variety of agricultural settings, including cropping, pastoral and horticultural applications. However, microbes are most effective when there is adequate soil moisture, moderate temperatures and storage protocols are met.

Absolutely! Our products are designed to be compatible with most farming inputs. They can be integrated into your existing agricultural regimen to enhance overall soil and plant health.
