What are you growing that you need an inoculant?

Bio Ag – We can apply all the organic fertilizers we want, but if we haven’t established healthy biology in our soil and on our plants (i.e. beneficial microorganisms and a thriving ‘soil food web’), those fertilizers won’t be as effective because it’s microbes that break them down and feed our plants. Plus they keep plants healthy in other ways. This is my favorite microbial inoculant for increasing beneficial microorganisms in the garden. Think “plant probiotics”.
Mycorrhizal Fungi – These fungi form relationships with over 95% of plants in nature. They wrap around plant roots and even go inside the roots, bringing water and nutrients to plants as well as protecting plants from root-feeding predators. In return, the plants give them food that they make during photosynthesis. It’s a partnership that’s really vital for optimal plant health. Unfortunately, in our gardens, these fungi are often lacking because of tilling, compaction, past pesticide and chemical fertilizer use, etc. But now we can bring them back in with this powder that we rub onto our seeds and root balls when planting, plus water into established landscapes. Mycorrhizal Fungi are critical support players in the micro-ecosystem. Think of the scene in Avatar where the ground lights up with millions of glowing blue threads. They’ve sort of like that, except they don’t glow blue and you often need a microscope to see them.
