Myco is a complete microbial seed treatment package that includes a high concentration of dormant beneficial microorganisms and an initial food source. Included are free-living and symbiotic bacteria, fungi, actinomycetes, algae and mycorrhizal fungi. Once the seed is planted,
the microbes start to grow and multiply. The crop benefits by the beneficial microorganisms freeing up nutrients and extending the reach of the crop root. In addition, they compete against detrimental microbes. The microbes benefit from living off root exudates (organic compounds and sugars). The end result is better soil cycling, more uniform stands and increased plant growth.
KingFisher Myco has been tailored to forage species, but does not include or replace Rhizobium inoculants which are needed for proper legume nitrogen fixation. Myco Seed Treat is compatible with Rhizobium inoculants and most other seed treatments.
All of KingFisher’s mixtures are treated with Myco Seed Treat to improve stand establishment. Myco is approved for use on organic operations by the USDA.
