mycorrhizal materials designed for citrus trees
    #15022649 - 09/03/11 02:51 PM (9 years, 8 months ago)

Hello,

Some years back I bought a powdered material designed to be inoculated
into the soil surrounding a citrus tree.

I was wondering if anyone here know the species likely involved.

I think that I will sprinkle a bit on agar, but I would benefit from
knowing how the result should appear.

Take care,

JD

Hi JD,

what about reading the text on the package?
It should be something in the genus Glomus or Gigaspora. You better do a web search, as far as I remember, these ones are almost impossible to cultivate on agar. Often these mycorrhizal inoculants contain spores from several species, including Aspergillus and Trichoderma, which are of course not mycorrhizal, but opponents of dangerous fungi, like Fusarium species.

I once read about multiplying Glomus species by inoculating pasteurized soil with marigold (Tagetes) seedlings, where the growing root tips would cause spore germination and mycelium growth, ending up in formation of mycorrhiza and production of new spores.

Glomus mosseae

Glomus mosseae is one of the most researched endomycorrhizal fungi. Numerous studies have determined the importance of G. mosseae in:

Nitrogen and phosphorous uptake
Enzyme activity to access micro nutrients
Nematode control
Root stimulation
Improved performance of woody perennials
Control of pathogenic fungi


Glomus aggregatum

Studies have determined the importance of the endomycorrhizal fungus G. aggregaturn in:

Improved plant performance in sandy soils
Control of root rots
Effective colonization with time release fertilizers
Tolerance of high fertility levels
Improved performance of Palms, Fruit trees.


Glomus intraradices

Glomus intraradices is the most widespread and researched endomycorrhizal fungi. Numerous studies have determined the importance of G. intraradices in:

Phosphorous uptake
Nematode control
Can access organic forms of nitrogen and phosphorous
Improved growth and performance of turf grasses, agricultural crops and citrus
Control of fusarium
Drought protection


Pisolithus

Pisolithus is a ectomycorrhizal genus that is widespread across an array of diverse habitats and host plants. We use a blend of 5 ecotypes in our mycorrhizal formulations which assures rapid mycorrhizal formations across a variety of environmental conditions. Documented benefits include:

Rapid early growth of inoculated tree species
Increased short root production
Tolerant of hot, dry conditions
Amelioration of heavy metal toxicity
Inhibits soil pathogen growth and plant infection
Benefits plants in disturbed environments


Rhizopogon

Rhizopogon spp is a truffle species that has numerous special qualities important in a soil inoculation program. Rhizopogon targets a wide range of ectomycorrhizal tree and shrub species.

Rhizopogon is a large mycorrhizal genus that occurs on both young and old plants, in diverse habitats and are present on every continent but Antarctica. This ecological amplitude was recognized early in the 20th century when Rhizopogon species were observed as dominant ectomycorrhizal fungi in exotic plantings. Rhizopogon occurs naturally across the United States, in Mexico, Japan, China, Europe and North Africa. Numerous factors make Rhizopogon a prime candidate for soil inoculation programs both nationally and internationally. Functional activities that benefit performance include:

Defends against diseases
Promotes soil structure
Tolerant of cold soil temperatures
Tolerant of a broad pH range
High levels of enzyme activity benefiting nutrient acquisition
Can utilize organic forms of nitrogen
Protects seedlings against moisture stress
Promotes successful plant establishment and growth
Consequently, Rhizopogon has been the focus of considerable application research. The ease, viability and effectiveness of spore inoculation are well documented. The low-cost nature of spore inoculation and the improved outplanting performance of Rhizopogon inoculated plants is driving increased use of Rhizopogon in practice. Nearly 200 scientific papers have been published on Rhizopogon and this important body of information is now being put to practical use.

Thank you both for taking the time to respond.

I will have to take to time to absorb all this data.  ;0)

I will post back when I have checked out the label...maybe it lists
organisms involved (though I would understand if they do not)

Take care,

JD
