Sustane Bolster MycoBio

Select ingredients for effective Mycorrhizal colonization, regardless of growing conditions

Bolster® MycoBio® Mycorrhizal Biostimulant & Bacterial Inoculant
Professional Grade 

Suståne Natural Fertilizer is backed by over 30 years of independent applied research on diverse crops and ecosystems. Unmatched by any other organic fertilizer manufacturer, such research is the foundation for developing products that deliver value under a wide variety of growing conditions. The superior performance of Suståne's products is recognized by growers from around the world.

Effective mycorrhizal colonization is associated with numerous soil and plant-enhancing effects, including improvements in soil structure, water use, and nutrient use efficiency. However, such benefits are not always observed due to differences in local soil conditions and variations in competitors' inoculant formulations.

BOLSTER MycoBio is particularly useful at promoting rapid establishment of diverse plants in growing media, and in constructed soils. MycoBio also improves tolerance to stressed conditions. Best used in combination with a Sustane-based organic fertility program using an N:P2O5 ratio that is greater than 2:1 over the entire grow cycle.

Applications and Rates

Blend into growing media used for seed starting, transplant production and/or initial planting of rooted cuttings at 1 - 2 lb. per yd3 (.65-1.5 kg m3) of media. 

Landscape and Garden Use

Apply ½ cup per gallon (64 g per 3.8 L) to fill dirt when planting shrubs or trees. In garden beds, use just 1 teaspoon (2.5 g) of material in each transplant hole for small flower vegetable transplants. Alternatively, apply in furrow using 1 lb.-2 lb. per 100 ft2 (1-2 kg per 100 m2) of soil when planting vegetable, fruit, or flower gardens.


Greenhouse/Transplant Production

For seed starting, transplant production, and/or initial planting of rooted cuttings, thoroughly incorporate into potting media using 1 - 2 lb. per yd3 (.65-1.5 kg m3). Increase to 3 lb. per yd3 (1.95 kg m3) when using propagation trays with < 20 cm3 cell volumes.  For smaller planting volumes or planted containers, use 1.5 tablespoon per gallon (2.6 g per L) of potting media, or 1 cup per 2.8 ft3  (128 g per .26 m3) loose filled bag of media.


Lawn Establishment

Applied prior to or concurrently to seeding with any species of turf grass. Broadcast apply 2 to 4 lb. per 1000 ft2  (1.5 - 3 kg per 100 m2), then lightly incorporate into the seed bed.

*NOTE: Adjust fertilizer program for local conditions & requirements.
