All MYCOSYM products are of natural origin, obtained from strains of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal (endo-mycorrhizal) fungi that are generally available all around the world.
They are safe for humans and for the environment.
The products contain fungal spores and hyphae, together with mycorrhized root fragments, on an inert carrier.
A uniquely efficient process for inoculum production has been developed, delivering a granular product with high activity and long storage stability. Also, a patent was granted for a milling process to obtain a powder in which living spores are preserved.
Large industrial capacities are available.
To ensure conformity with specifications it is not enough to test the product after it has been produced.
Therefore, a complete quality assurance scheme is put in place from the beginning of the production process until the release to the customer:
utensils are kept clean to prevent any contamination
Spore identification and count
Bioassay (Most Probable Number of Inoculation Propagules)
Mycorrhizal infection potential (MIP)
Absence of phytotoxicity
Absence of pathologic levels of pathogens of high concern
Physico-chemical parameters: N, P, K, humidity, pH
In Spain the"Comité Andaluz de Agricultura Ecológica" has approved the three MYCOSYM products for their use in Organic Agriculture.
CAAE is an institution recognized by the European Union and the USDA.
