Customer Testimonials

Nick Malajczuk's ability to explain how mycorrhiza worked and how it enhanced soils and farming operations was purely refreshing. As a farmer, I was convinced by Nick that I was on the right path with reinoculating paddocks. I needed confirmation there'd be an economic advantage in applying mycorrhizal fungi, so in 2010 one of the driest years, I set up my own replicated trials and compared the use of VAM to No VAM. The results confirmed what I was looking for and MAI Australia’s products are now a part of our farming operation.
