Welcome to MycoGold: We can help you grow better.
Do more with Less….less fertilizer, that is.
Soil isn’t just something we stick a seed in. It’s a biosphere complete with good guys and bad guys. As farmers, our job is to encourage the good guys and let them do their jobs. Mycorrhizal Fungi are the good guys, and so are the other powerful biological organisms in MycoGold® that make it the next generation inoculant. MycoGold® not only brings back balance to farmers’ soil and increases yield production in their crops.
A natural habitat exists beneath the surface in the root zone. Crops have a symbiotic relationship with fungi. The fungi are responsible for getting nutrients and water to the plant, and the plant, in return, supplies the fungi with carbohydrates. Mycorrhizal fungi strongly enhance the root system by creating masses of very thin strands called hyphae. These strands grow from within the root cells of the crop and spread out into the soil, allowing for greater efficiency in the uptake of nutrients and water. Modern agriculture practices have decimated the mycorrhizae in our soils, and we need to reintroduce them through seed treatment. Mycorrhizal fungi are our featured ingredient, but it’s not the only piece to the puzzle. We also have Nitrogen generating bacteria providing up to 40 lbs of N per acre plus so much more. This is why we have developed MycoGold to be the complete package Biological Inoculant Arsenal.
The MycoGold Advantage
8-20% Yield Increases
By improving nutrient uptake and soil biology, MycoGold seed inoculant supports plant growth leading to yield increases.
10-25% Reduction of Fertilizer
MycoGold’s key bacteria and fungi work as bio fertilizers that fix Nitrogen, unlock P, and create better root development and soil biology which allows better uptake of nutrients.
Contains High Counts of Endo Fungi Propagules
Propagules start benefiting the plant in the early stages and are more effective than spores for row crops short growing season.
Improved Drought Resistance
Since MycoGold seed inoculant supports water uptake from the soil, they strengthen plants in drought periods. This is a high importance in times of increasingly extreme climate conditions.
Improved Pest Resistance
Through root colonization, researchers have determined better plant defense against disease. The Beauveria Bassiana fungi grows endophytically through the plant defending against various insect pests.
MycoGold, The “Complete Package” Biological Inoculant
MycoGold® offers crop specific blends that are effective with improving production creating better soil environments, defending against disease, and infestations. We have experienced products that are front end beneficial and others that are back end performing. MycoGold is a complete package biological inoculant that starts working from germination all the way to harvest. With market price pressure, we know farmers are going to reduce input costs where they can, usually in their fertilizer program. MycoGold’s key biologicals work as bio fertilizers. Do not sacrifice yield, let the efficiencies of MycoGold do what they’re designed to. Give MycoGold a try and see the difference for yourself.
How MycoGold Mycorrhizal Fungi
Mycorrhizal Fungi is the only known fungal system categorized as a bio-fertilizer. Its hyphae can extend much beyond a few meters away from the depletion zone and thus can acquire nutrients from a much wider soil area. The mycorrhizal fungus grows as a vast web of tiny filaments in plant roots and the surrounding soil. The fungal threads, called mycelia, explore a much larger area than plant roots. When the mycorrhizae encounter limited resources, such as water, phosphorus, or micronutrients, they can pass them on to their associated plant. Mycorrhizal fungi seed inoculants can increase plants’ access to phosphorus, ammonium, potassium, calcium, iron, copper, manganese, zinc, and nickel. MycoGold® Mycorrhizal Fungi seed treatment can also help provide drought resistance and heat tolerance. This is partly the result of mycorrhizae-induced hormonal changes in plants, which allow them to maintain a better water balance under drought conditions. Mycorrhizae provides for a 25% reduction of water in row crops, making it an excellent drought insurance.
Why haven’t I ever heard of this stuff?
About 99% of farmers we talk to have never heard of mycorrhizal fungi inoculant. We have been working with biological inputs, specifically mycorrhizal, for over 15 years. Mycorrhizal fungi have been around for a while, mainly for esteemed gardeners and cannabis growers. Until recent years, the fungi were unable to be mass-produced, making it cost-prohibitive for row crops. Now that MycoGold is available, more farmers will improve soil biology, enhance their plant’s root system, and ultimately increase production. MycoGold is the next generation must use inoculant.
The Bottom Line
We have been working with various biological seed treatments on our farms for over two decades. While most farmers’ interests have been directed to what’s occurring above the soil, they are missing what is necessary and essential in the soil. Over the years, we have experienced what works, what doesn’t, and what combination of active ingredients works the best for various crops. MycoGold was developed by farmers for farmers. We know the challenges of farming and understand how important it is to get your input costs where they need to be while providing maximum production in return. Our goal is to educate farmers about the benefits of MycoGold and provide them with the best performing inoculant available. Give MycoGold a try on your farm and realize it’s worth Gold to your crops.
