Mycorrhiza is a micro-organism, which together with fungi and bacteria contributes to an optimum soil life. Micosat F products consist of a select group of endo- or ecto-mycorrhizae, fungi and bacteria that are matched to the roots of the particular plant.

Mycorrhization results: Asparagus

Asperges_stijging_van_de_productie-1Here below we present the results of a field experiment in Foggia, Italy, on three hectares of land planted with asparagus.

The results concern the assessment of the effects of the innovative technology regarding the symbiotic mycorrhizae fungi on plant roots. The test was performed at one of the most important agricultural companies in Foggia: OP Caccavelli Group, located in Rignano Garganico (GF). The company produces, packages and sells tomatoes, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower and corn.

The batch, in which Micosat F Tab Plus WP was introduced with a dose of 12 kg per hectare, was divided into four sections during the vegetative growth to test the application (T1), from the second half of June and every other twenty days at a dosage of 3 kg per hectare.

In comparison with the untreated control plot (T2), we achieved the following results:

Caliber commercial asparagus 6/12
Total kg batch produced at T1 from April to June = 589.90
Total kg batch produced at T2 from April to June = 392.00
Production increase T1 T2 = +50.5%

Caliber commercial asparagus 12/18
Total kg batch produced at T1 from April to June = 1,879.40
Total kg batch produced at T2 from April to June = 1,457.21
Production increase T1 T2 = + 29%

Caliber commercial asparagus 18/22
Total kg batch produced at T1 from April to June = 1,369.70
Total kg batch produced at T2 from April to June = 1,229.20
Production increase T1 T2 = 11.4%

Caliber commercial asparagus EXTRA
Total kg batch produced at T1 from April to June = 1,684.90
Total kg batch produced at T2 from April to June = 1,099.40
Production increase T1 T2 = +53.3%

Overall, the yield in the batch treated with Micosat F (T1) was 29.2% higher than the untreated standard contract size (T2).

Dr. Joseph Perrotta says: "The confirmation of these results, as well as those obtained on other productions, show the importance that we give to the soil and, more specifically, to the rhizosphere, as a fundamental factor for the production.

Maintaining the balance with the soil fertility factors is the principle asset for a better crop, not only in terms of quantity, but also in terms of quality and healthier food."
