- Increases degree of root colonization by native or inoculated VA mycorrhizal (VAM) Fungi
- Introduces a diverse population of beneficial microbes into barren soils, to:
- Fix nitrogen and solubilize mineral phosphorus
- Recycle mineral nutrients through the breakdown of organic matter
Colonize AG is a biological inoculant designed to promote the establishment of beneficial plant-microbe-soil interactions in the root zone. Colonize AG utilizes a dual strategy acquired from Nature. First, it is a microbial inoculant containing numerous strains of rhizosphere bacteria and fungi that fix nitrogen, solubilize phosphorus, and recycle mineral nutrients through the breakdown of organic matter. These include spores of select strains of Bacillus and Streptomyces bacteria, and Trichoderma fungi. Second, Colonize AG contains formononetin, an isoflavonoid which increases the degree of root colonization by introduced and native vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) fungi. Together, the activities of these beneficial bacteria and fungi promote plant health by improving soil fertility and plant nutrition in the natural way. Colonize AG is not a plant food product.
