B AND B TRANSPLANTS
PHC Ecto-Injectable is designed specifically for ecto-mycorrhizal fungi tree species. PHC Ecto-Injectable contains a cocktail blend of ectomycorrhizal fungi, yucca plant extract and includes PHC BioPak with its beneficial rhizosphere bacteria. PHC Ecto-Injectable introduces spores of selected species of ectomycorrhizal fungi to the root zone. These fungi colonize the roots and can:
- Increase absorption and transfer of water and mineral nutrients from the soil to the plants
- Help plants mitigate adverse environmental conditions such as drought, soil salinity, and extremes of soil pH.
PHC Ecto-Injectable also introduces six species of beneficial rhizosphere bacteria which can improve soil fertility by:
- Fixing atmospheric nitrogen
- Solubilizing mineral phosphorus
- Biodegrading soil organic matter, releasing mineral nutrients
Ectomycorrhizae benefit conifers and hardwoods, such as: Pine, Beech, Spruce, Birch, Hemlock, Hickory, Basswood (Linden), Pecan, Larch, Willow, Cypress, Oak, Eucalyptus, Cedar, Chestnut and Fir.
For other tree species, use PHC Injectable for Trees, as it contains both endo and ectomycorrhizae plus formononetin, a mycorrhizal stimulant that enhances root colonization of endomycorrhizae.
B AND B PLANTS
Mix two packets per 100 gallons of water, agitate thoroughly, inject into root ball and outside edges under 150-200 psi maximum with a soil probe at a rate of 1 quart per probe site. Avoid hot injection systems.
Refer to the chart in the label regarding options and specific application rates for B&B trees.
Note: Root ball diameters are based on tree size according to American Nursery Standards.
