Hydroponics PDF Print E-mail

As home gardens and food production has increased in popularity in recent years so has hydroponics for plant and food production. Almost any plant can be grown in this way today and very little space is required. Mycorrhizal fungi can easily be added, usually as a powder directly into the nutrient solution, but it can be used in other ways such as a root dip gel or incorporated into soil growth medias.

The big advantages of mycorrhizae in hydroponic applications are not unlike more conventional ways of growing plants. Mycorrhizae cause fine feeder roots to branch and extend the active feeding capacity of the root tips by mycelial networks in rockwool or other inert growth media’s that much more effectively access and trans-locate these materials back to the plant.

So the advantages of this system include;

  • Consistent high yields and faster growth
  • Water can be reused
  • Less difficult manual labor and weeds are nearly non-existent
  • Less area required and quality tends to be excellent
  • Mycorrhizae and other biologicals can be easily be introduced to the roots

Customer Testimonials


2 years ago we applied MycoApply to 16 grass tennis courts and created 8 control courts. The condition of the wintergreen couch on the trial courts is noticeably better. They've been more drought resistant, increased firmness and required less fertiliser. The control courts needed more fertiliser and had more dry patch during summer.

By using MycoApply in our court prep and continuing other maintenance programs, many people have commented that our courts are the best in the State. This year we'll be reapplying MycoApply to all of our courts.
