Elaine, grass hay and pasture in northern
We applied 40 ounces of MycorrPlus A the
first of June. The first of August I saw that
our hay had an additional 3" of growth. A friend
of mine took a look at our hayfield, and was
amazed. He wanted to know what we did, because,
with the hot, dry conditions we have had over
the past couple of months, other hay fields in
the area had shown little or no growth . In
fact, he said that they had turned brown and
dry. Not only is our hay field still green all
the way down to the root, but the grass is
healthier and stronger.
What we are seeing is that the pasture is
beginning to be thicker. A friend of ours that
has had the same amount of rain has run out of
grass and is feeding hay, while we have more
grass than we can actually use for the number of
cattle that we have.
Elaine, compaction is decreasing, southern GA,
One of the main reasons I wanted to try
MycorrPlus is because of the compaction problems we
are having with our soil. Paul assured me that
compaction would gradually disappear after using
MycorrPlus A, so we decided to try it on our
1,000 acres of pasture and grass hay.
Well, I have watched it work, and much more
quickly than I had expected. After just 3
weeks, where we applied
MycorrPlus the soil
probe would go down about 1" , but not at all in
a control field. After just 2 months the soil
probe goes down 2.5" where we applied the
MycorrPlus A, but still won't even go into the soil
in the control field.
Right after a rain I can go down 4" with the
probe. The compaction is getting better. Before
MycorrPlus we had a lot of runoff, but
not as much now. I believe this decrease in
compaction is one of the reasons the rain is
going in better, causing the grass to do better.
I am really excited about what the
MycorrPlus is doing for us.
My husband is a person who is not very easily
convinced, he is a show-me person. But now, even
though it has only been a little over 2 months
since we applied the
MycorrPlus he can see
the difference himself, and he is becoming
Elaine, mid-February, cattle fertility
I believe the sea minerals in
MycorrPlus will increase fertility. We have Heifers. Last
year we had 5 sets of paternal twins, which is
unheard of. Last year our 208 cows bred 224
Our cows bred in a shorter period of time last
year, and this year 110 out of 159 were born in
the first 30 days of calving. The sea minerals
MycorrPlus really make a difference in
Last spring we had 10 calves in the barn, but
this year just one. Over the winter our calves
haven't drawn down, but are very fit. Our cows
are the best looking they have ever been in
mid-February. They should be a 5 or 6 for
re-breading, and they are already a 6.
Elaine, mid-February, clover
The last few years our soil compaction has
gotten worse and worse, and our clover wasn't
doing anything. Today is February 1. We used
MycorrPlus in July, and by mid-February our clover
already 6" high. Last year by mid-March it was
only 5" tall. Our clover is back! Our cows have
plenty of clover and rye grass, so they aren't
It also seems that the
stimulating our grass seed to come up. When we
sowed in previous years the grass was spotty at
best. But this year where we have sown has
filled up the pasture. Even my husband is amazed
by this, and excited.
Elaine, mid-March, grasshoppers and fire ants
Last fall I saw fire ants moving down the cow
paths. Then this spring I saw the calves digging
at the fire ant mounds. Then I saw my cows doing
When I looked at the mounds there were no fire
ants in them. I called my Entomologist to ask
him about it. I told him that I had put out
MycorrPlus last summer. He then asked me if
it contained fungi, and I said yes. He then said
that fungi kill fire ants.
Also, I had grass hoppers last year, but none
this year. I don't know if the
MycorrPlus might have helped with that as well.
(Editor's note: Elaine's neighbors have
heard her tell about what MycorrPlus has
done for her and have seen her fields, and to
date 9 of them have purchased MycorrPlus).
Oat farmer, MO.
A friend of mine used
MycorrPlus A this
year. His sprayer doesn't have nozzles, but fans
the application out from one nozzle. The ground
tends to get a bit more right under the sprayer.
So I went to look at his oat field with him and
noticed that everywhere the tractor went there
was a ridge of oats that were taller and darker
green. This seems to demonstrate how a little
heavier application can give better results.
clover in pasture
Leroy ordered another 5 buckets for this year.
He said that the
MycorrPlus did really well
last year, and that his clover is so pretty and
tall this spring that he almost hates to turn
the cows loose on it.
Andrew Curtiss, Shalom Vegetables in Michiganseed potatoes,
vegetables My experience with the
MycorrPlus was excellent. I grow CSA and farm
market vegetables on a plot of land around 1
acre in size. It is land that had been used for
conventional agriculture for 30 years prior to
2015. On your recommendation I applied an
equivalent of 40 oz. of
MycorrPlus to the
acre in May of 2015.
To say I was impressed may be an understatement.
I planted 75 pounds of seed potatoes. My final
potato harvest was in the 1200 pound range.
For nearly 6 weeks my shell peas produced large
quantities of the sweetest peas I have grown. We
picked off of our bush snap beans for over 6
weeks. When I quit picking them they were still
flowering. By that time we had become completely
sick of picking beans.☺
Overall the flavor of our produce this last year
was exceptional. At the farmers market I was
told every week how excellent our produce was. I
have no doubt the
MycorrPlus was a major
What impressed me the most was the plants
ability to deal with stress. In mid-June we had
almost five inches of rain in two days. I
thought for sure I was going to loose half the
garden, as it was under water for almost 12
hours. The plants pushed through. What followed
was 21 days without rain. Never once in that
time did I see a wilted plant.
When it came time to tear the garden down, I was
blown away by the mycorrhizal fungi all over the
roots of our plants. I firmly believe that
symbiotic relationship between plant and root
was the key to our success in 2015. The root
structures were amazing. God's creation is truly
amazing! Thanks for an awesome product.
Roger Berns, WI.
On my open pollinated corn this year, the TDN was 87.95, protein
was 10.56 and test weights were 60.9. A few
stocks had 3 ears. The 3rd ear wasn't that
large, but it was filled out. The man who bought
the corn said, "Boy, this is heavy stuff".
Others in my area said their corn yields were
way down, and they thought it was because of
too much rain. But my corn yields were up with
big ears. Some stalks were 12 feet tall.
On my pastures, I have 36 head on 19 acres. My
cattle are fatter than a pumpkin, nice and
round. My neighbor commented, "Boy, those cattle
are round, and they are square in the top; they
are in really good shape, nice and fat". My
grazing fields last a lot longer with
MycorrPlus. My thistles are gone; either the cows
ate them or the grass squeezed them out.
My apples are delicious, and people tell me that
my apple cider is extremely good. When they try
other organic ciders, they buy mine.
corn, sunflowers, pasture
In 2015 I applied 10 gallons of fish per acre,
some biological and some enzymes. In 2016 I
didn't apply anything else but
broadcast 16 ounces, then put another 16 ounces
in the row, on the seed. 2016 was a particularly
dry year. Although my corn and sunflowers were
under irrigation, I think the dry weather still
has a negative effect.
Although didn't apply anything in 2016 but the
MycorrPlus, my organic blue corn yielded 20%
more and my sunflowers yielded 25% more than in
2015. Besides this, they had better color and
vigor. They just weren't as vigorous before.
My dad even commented, "This stuff sure does
work"! Where I applied
MycorrPlus on my
pasture, my Canadian Thistles turned yellow, and
my buffalo ate them right down to the soil. I
figure that the
MycorrPlus made them more
corn, soybeans, hay I saw improvement in plant growth and
yields. More hay with fewer cuttings; corn &
beans are not harvested yet, but looks like an
excellent crop; saw some 4-bean pods (4 beans in
a pod) in bean field (that I've never seen
before). Improved soil structure, improved root
MycorrPlus on my corn silage, and the
cows are licking it right up. My protein was
down a point, but I wasn't boosting it with
nitrogen as I usually do. The good part is that
my nitrates should be down.
My milk production is up per ton of feed
as compared to last year (better feed conversion
rate). The main 6 nutrients tested for in the
forage sample are about the same as last year.
pasture We have owned and operated our family
farming operation in North Central FL since
1976. I became aware of AG-USA and MycorrPlus
in the Fall of 2016 and decided to apply
MycorrPlus to 120 acres of newly planted Tiff 9
improved Bahia grass. It was amazing how fast
we had grazing in the spring and by summer, it
was knee deep with no additional fertilizer or
We also decided to spray MycorrPlus on an
additional 80 acres of newly seeded grass. It
was a little dry in the spring of 2017. I have
never seen grass germinate as quickly with a
great stand. MycorrPlus helped us in getting a
stand established. I think it is a great
product and I intend to continue using it. We
have never had grazing like we had in 2017…the
cows never caught up.
pasture I saw an improvement in plant growth and
yields. I didn’t use any other fertility. The
treated area was more structured. The root
systems were longer in the treated areas, plus
there were white fungi strands. The treated soil
was more moist than the untreated. We don’t see
any fire ants in the treated area. Fire mounds
hay fields We applied 2 quarts per acre. The leaves
are thicker and we see improved growth/yield. We
didn’t use any other fertilizer. The soil is
looser in the treated fields, with bigger root
beds and thicker root systems. There are more
earthworms in the treated areas, and less
run-off and better drought tolerance. We see
much better growth in our hay fields in the
treated areas, and less weed and insect pressure.
pasture I applied 1 quart/acre. I saw an
improvement in growth and yields. We used no
other fertility. I pushed a metal rod into the
treated area and it easily goes down 2 feet. The
treated area has more earthworms and less weed
and insect pressure.
Black oats “I will be honest, I thought
MycorrPlus was snake oil when I put it out. Well,
impressive results, better germination, growth
of 50 grams compared to 14 grams, warmer soils,
mushrooms throughout the field, deeper root
systems and warmer soil temperatures."
pasture, comparison of MycorrPlus-A with
Sea 90, fish emulsion/raw milk/molasses, and no
I had received a SARE grant to compare the
results of applying the above treatments with a
control area in our pasture which is
rotationally grazed with buffalo. This was the
second year for the comparison. The pasture is
divided into 16 sections so 4 sections were
randomly assigned to each of the 4 treatment
areas. Soil samples were taken in spring 2016
and 2017 and Solvita tests were done during the
summer each of the years.
Each of the test areas is a total of
approximately 80 acres and of that we estimate
that about 60 acres are easily accessible for
applying the soil treatments. We applied 2-5
gallon buckets of
MycorrPlus A to that 60
acres the first year (2016) and 1 bucket the
second year (2017).
In 2016 we received good rainfall
throughout the summer. There were no obvious
differences between the different treatment
areas or even with the control (no treatment)
area. So in the spring of 2017, in addition to
treating the various areas, we applied the
different treatments to a small strip that was
fenced off from the buffalo for shrubs to grow.
It was hoped that we could see some difference
with a side-by-side comparison. This year we
had almost no rainfall from May until August.
The test area was mowed in May and none of it
regrew until late in the summer. (The same
thing happened to the rest of the pasture with
We can, however, see some differences in
the soil tests and soil structure. A soil
composite was taken from all the various areas
of each “treatment section”. The tests from
each of the treatment areas showed a definite
improvement over the control area in organic
matter, CO2 respiration, total nitrogen and
carbon, and overall soil health.
MycorrPlus treated areas showed an advantage over the other
treated areas in nitrogen and carbon. In
October 2017 we dug some of the roots in the
side-by-side test strip. The trowel we used
went 4.75 inches into the control area (no
treatment), 5 inches into the Sea 90 area, 6.25
inches into the fish/milk area, and 6.75 (full
depth of trowel) in the
The Solvita Test taken on a hot dry day in
August showed the fish/milk area to be the
highest in CO2 respiration. (Control: 12.42,
Fish/Milk: 27.2, Sea 90: 18.9, and
Our conclusions are that overall, all the
various treatments were advantageous in both the
wet and the dry years as evidenced by the soil
tests and improved soil structure. The
MycorrPlus won, hands down, in the area of
convenience and ease of use. The Sea 90 did not
dissolve well and we ended up applying it dry.
The raw milk was difficult to source. We made
several trips to a local dairy to acquire the
amount needed and kept it frozen until ready to
use. The cost of all treatments turned out to
be comparable given the added expense of miles
traveled to pick up the Sea 90, fish emulsion
and raw milk.
We will definitely be purchasing more
MycorrPlus to apply to the “control” area of
the pasture which has not received any additives
vegetables, corn I didn’t use
MycorrPlus on pasture and
hay but plan on it next year, as we were very
pleased with the results on our produce fields.
We are hoping for even more results as we use
MycorrPlus longer. We applied 2 quarts per
acre to our vegetables. We also applied chicken
compost, sulfur, copper, boron and zinc, as soil
test showed a deficiency of those traces. Also
sprayed Monty’s liquid carbon.
I treated the whole field and see that the
soil is easier to work with. We planted red
beets and we really liked what we saw. Most of
our vegetables we raise for market did really
well, even with excess rain at one time, then
very dry later
We sell bunched beets and our root systems
had a lot of white fungi on them and the tops
were very nice and glossy even late in the year.
When we took up the plastic I saw more
earthworms than ever before. One highlight for
MycorrPlus is the moisture retention. We
never irrigated this year, even when others were
irrigating. Interestingly enough, I have a corn
field right next to my vegetable field, and
where the wind carried the spray into my corn
field it out-yielded the rest of the field.
