For seedlings to be transplanted
- Put 1 Mycogroe at the center of the plastic bag during the potting operations.
For potted seedlings
- Using a 1-cm wide bamboo stick, make a 5-cm deep hole 1 cm away from the base of the seedling and drop one Mycogroe tablet into the hole.
- One tablet is inoculated into each seedling during pricking or transplanting in the nursery. Application is done only once throughout the entire life of a plant.
