How Great White Works:
There are two main types of beneficial fungi: endomycorrhizal and ectomycorrhizal. Endomycorrhizae tend to grow alongside vegetables, shrubs, flowers and fruit trees. The ‘ecto’ variety, however is more adapted to growing on conifers and oak trees. Ecto (outside) varieties tend to grow in the substrate itself, whereas endo (inside) varieties actually penetrate the root cells, facilitating a greater level of nutrient uptake through a close symbiotic relationship. The combination of the two ensures that all bases are covered, regardless of your chosen plant species.
The 11 different forms of beneficial bacteria contained in Orca work to create a dominant microbial ecosystem that wards off pathogenic bacteria and fungi, preventing issues like pythium, which can destroy entire crops in no time at all. If you’ve ever lost a harvest to pythium, you’ll understand just how painful it can be. A thriving culture of microbials is one of your best defenses against it – a gift from mother nature.
