EndoMaxima® Preferred By Contractors!

EndoMaxima® is preferred by contractors due to its higher spore count and competitive pricing.

EndoMaxima® is a  Mycorrhizal concentrate  designed for agriculture, landscape construction, sports-field construction, mine reclamation or erosion control projects. EndoMaxima is a concentrate of spores representing a generalist Glomus species that is global and which works with plants that can associate with an Endo (VAM) type mycorrhizae.

A contractor came in to Trees That Please Nursery to purchase endomycorrhizae that had been required by the architect for a landscaping project. When presented with the pricing for our EndoMaxima product he stated that it seemed expensive compared to his regular source. 

Victor, our Soil Secrets Operation's Manager, overheard the conversation and suggested that was because of EndoMaxima’s higher spore count per pound of product. Victor is usually working behind the scene mixing, packaging, and labeling. The contractor asked for details.


We showed him that Soil Secrets EndoMaxima® product was guaranteed to contain at minimum 1,450,000 viable spores of Glomus intradices per pound! Curious he called his regular store source for mychorrhizae and asked about the spore count. He explained to us that he had been buying 15 pounds per acre of this competitor’s mychorrizae product to meet the landscape architect’s requirement.

After he gathered all the facts he determined that EndoMaxima® was the better product. 

EndoMaxima® was better due to its higher spore count 
and he could save money because he only needed to buy one pound per acre instead of 15.

Understanding the Importance of Cation Exchange Capacity

I was recently asked to provide a simplified explanation on the importance of Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) values. My Response:  CEC is the ability of a soil to hold onto plant nutrients.   The finer the particle size the higher CEC value, generally speaking. For example sand particles are course and visible to the naked eye, where as clay particles are fine and are not visible to the naked eye. So clay will have a higher CEC value than sand. It is obvious to most of us that sand cannot hold onto water or nutrients as well as a soil with a finer texture. Therefore, soils rich in Clay and Loam size particles are universally recognized as being better for farming - CEC explains this.  The numerical value for CEC represents how much nutrition can be held by a given amount of soil. For example one pound of a clay loam soil with a CEC value of 20 will hold 4 times as many nutrients as a sandy soil with a CEC value of 5. 20/4 = 5 .  It's all about math, for example Nitrogen in

Pecan Associations with Mycorrhizae

It could be true if you were in a riparian area of Texas where Pecan grow naturally that the specific species of Ecto Mycorrhizae could be air born and therefore capable of inoculating a tree.    However I’ve personally seen orchards in that region of Texas that did not have a mycorrhizal infection and suffered nutrient update inhibition.  Once we inoculated the trees with  the proper species of mycorrhizal fungi  the trees rapidly begin to benefit from the infection.    In working with a company in Mexico that has the majority market share in agriculture for the distribution of fertilizers and biomimetic materials such as mycorrhizal products, we’ve seen the same thing.    I recall a conversation with a pecan grower in Texas about 15 years ago while I was attending the Texas Organic Farming conference, where the grower noticed that trees across the road from his orchard growing in the nearby river flood plain did not show zinc nutrient inhibition.   He was curious why his trees had
