Fruit and Vegetables
Improve Plant Establishment
From vegetable seedlings to fruit trees, ornamentals and native plants, Mycorrcin ensures less transplantation shock, faster establishment due to enhanced root growth and quicker time to maturity.
Just soak seedling trays or pots in a solution of Mycorrcin and water before planting and then apply to the soil around the plant after planting.
Enhance Fruit and Vegetable Quality
Good roots make good fruit! Mycorrcin has shown stunning results in improving fruit flavour in apples, berries and other fruit varieties, as well as wine made from Mycorrcin-treated grapevines. It also reduces rejects and gives greater uniformity in fruit size and shape.
Adding a treatment of Mycorrcin at the right time will ensure the best quality fruit and vegetables.
Timing is everything, to get the best out of Mycorrcin apply:
- to seed trays at sowing
- to seedbeds at sowing to promote germination and plant establishment
- to perennial plants (fruit trees, bushes and vines) when they are actively growing, prior to major root growth flushes in spring and autumn
- with herbicides to reduce the negative impact on soil microbiology.
Boost Plant Nutrient Uptake
Mycorrcin improves plant nutrient uptake, reducing nutrient leaching, meaning overall fertilizer requirements are lower.

Improve Plant Resilience
For general resilience in times of stress such as exposure to spray drift, disease drought conditions, our foliar biostimulant, Foliacin, provides a boost to the plant’s health system. Foliacin helps with leaf retention and ensures plants survive and thrive better in environmentally tough times (drought, heat stress, water stress). It also returns the bloom to apples and other crops.
Foliacin reduces the need for agricultural chemicals to manage powdery mildew, botrytis and black spot.
