ENDORHIZA ® should be stored in its original and closed packaging, in a cool, dry and shady place. In these conditions it lasts 6 months after formulated.
When the spores germinate, their hyphae penetrate the cortical tissue of the plant root and cause a progressive infection of the cells of the cortex. In this process, the endomycorrhizae form branched, tree-like hyphae ends (arbuscules) in the cells of the cortex, which act as organs that improve the absorption of nutrients, through which the symbiotic metabolism between fungus and plant.
The application of certain fungicides can reduce the beneficial effect of mycorrhizae, therefore, it is recommended to apply them individually; systemic fungicides can reduce colonization. In general, it is recommended to make a rational use of insecticides, nematicides and herbicides to maintain the activity of the mycorrhizae. Chemical fertilizers, especially those rich in phosphorus, can be reduced by up to 50%.
