The recultivation and afforestation of polluted stands, slag heaps or landfills are very important for our environment but very difficult. Especially on sites with very bad soil and climate conditions the application of INOQ endomycorrhiza will lead your recultivation to success.
- Increased survival and growth
- Improved tolerance of pollutants
- Better aggregation of soil due to mycorrhizal Glomalin
INOQ endomycorrhiza products are soil vitalising substances which support the survival especially on difficult stands which show bad soil conditions with no active soil life. Also pollutions of the soil will lead to high mortality of plants. On the other hand repeated planting or sowing is labour intensive and often not very promising. Today we know stands where plants can only survive because of their mycorrhiza symbiosis. We isolate those fungi from the stands to use their abilitys to tolerate pollutants for the plants. In research projects we work closely with our colleagues at scientific institutes and universities on these subjects. The sowing on a steep boulder heap due to the construction of the new Gotthardt tunnel in Switzerland was only successful with application of mycorrhiza. A closed vegetation appeared already in the first year. The impressing results can be seen on the right picture. It is also a very successful recultivation as in the year of the sowing very high temperatures without rainfall were We produce INOQ endomycorrhiza products on different carrier materials. For recultivation you can choose according to your applications/constructions: INOQ Agri on vermiculite for steep heeps, mountain regions and hydroseeding. INOQ Hydro on heavy lava increases water absorption of soils. INOQ Prohum on expanded clay and peat was developed for dyke renovation.
