MycoGold for Potatoes – Mycorrhizal Seed, In-Furrow Treatment
Achieve Golden Potato Yields
Potatoes are one of the most significant food crops in the world, and potato farmers are always looking for ways to improve their yields and protect their crops against diseases and pests. One way to achieve this is by using a potato seed inoculant treatment. MycoGold® Liquid for potatoes is the only potato seed inoculant treatment that combines Mycorrhizal Fungi, Beauveria Bassiana, Azospirillum/Azotobacter, and Rhodopseudomonas palustris. This complete arsenal of beneficial bacteria and fungi work symbiotically with the plant to produce an average of 20% more potatoes along with disease and pest protection all growing season.
Ultimate Biological Potato Seed Treatment
How MycoGold® works and why it’s effective
Mycorrhizal fungi are beneficial fungi that form a symbiotic relationship with the roots of plants, including potatoes. The mycorrhizal fungi attach themselves to the root hairs of the potato plant, increasing the root absorption area up to 1000 times more than an untreated plant. The mycorrhizal fungi with the growth of hyphae or “root hairs”, allow for more efficient uptake of Moisture and Nutrients making it the most robust grass in the fields. This results in a much more robust potato plant with efficient water and nutrient uptake.
Beauveria Bassiana is a naturally occurring fungus that grows endophytically through the potato plant, defending against soil-borne pathogens, disease, and potato insect pests including beetles. By introducing Beauveria Bassiana to your potato plants, you can reduce the need for harmful pesticides and protect your crops against a range of pests.
These bacteria help generate nitrogen for non-legumes, which potatoes are. Nitrogen is a vital nutrient for plant growth, and by providing the potato plant with nitrogen through these bacteria, the plant can grow stronger and healthier.
Bio Stimulants accelerate the growth patterns, and the micro-nutrients give the plant a head start over control. This head start at the initial growing stage pays dividends at harvest.
Chelated micro-nutrients give your potatoes that boost during the initial growing stage allowing for a head start over control. This boost results in a better yield and a healthier crop.
MycoGold® provides a range of benefits for potato growers. The combination of beneficial bacteria and fungi in MycoGold® Liquid helps to increase the root system, resulting in a much more robust plant. This, in turn, ensures your potatoes have efficient water uptake, better nutrient uptake, and drought stress tolerance. Our tests have shown an average increase in yield of 23% over the last three years.
MycoGold helps defends against:
- Early blight
- Colorado potato beetle
- Potato psyllids
MycoGold® Liquid for potatoes is a biological potato seed inoculant or in-furrow treatment. Mix MycoGold® Liquid seed treatment and Complex Bio-Carb together with nonchlorinated water and apply directly on seed pieces or in-furrow.
We highly recommend combining MycoGold Liquid with Complex Bio-Carb as a seed treatment or in-furrow application.
See labels for application rate.
What Farmers are Saying
“We have been using MycoGold on our potatoes for the last two years. We have eliminated insect infestations since. It has consistently outperformed control by 25% every year.”
– Thomas G., Idaho
“Increased our production and had no disease or psyllid cases this year. Will use MycoGold again.”
– James K., Colorado
