Mycorrhiza With Attitude
Rootella® mycorrhizal inoculants are highly-concentrated and cost-effective. Groundwork BioAg has developed its products from vigorous strains of endomycorrhiza, sourced from the harsh Israeli desert. These fungal strains have evolved to be true survivors, able to adapt and to thrive in the most difficult conditions. All Rootella® products are suitable for organic farming, and contain only naturally-occurring fungi (non-GMO).

Rootella® X mycorrhizal seed treatment effectively inoculates plants with vigorous endomycorrhizal fungi. Mycorrhizal inoculation by application of Rootella® products improves plant nutrient uptake. Effective mycorrhizal inoculation of plant roots has been proven to:
- Improve crop yield
- Reduce fertilizer, compost and irrigation requirements
- Increase plant durability under stress
Rootella® X mycorrhizal seed treatment boasts extremely high concentrations of endomycorrhizal fungi: at least 133,600 viable propagules of Glomus intraradices per gram (3,787,200 per ounce) and 33,400 viable propagules of Glomus mosseae per gram (946,800 propagules per ounce). As a result, application of Rootella® X at a seed load factor of merely 15 grams per hectare (0.214 oz per acre) is adequate to apply 2,500,000 viable propagules per hectare (1,000,000 viable propagules per acre).
