WHAT IS IT?
Mycorrhiza is the symbiotic association of mycorrhizal fungi with plant roots. Through this symbiosis, they naturally develop and mutually reinforce without hindering or cannibalizing each other.
The word Mycorrhiza comes from Greek words (mykês) meaning fungi and (rhiza) meaning roots.
Mycorrhizas has been in nature since the beginning of time. Hence they are completely and naturally powerful.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR THE PLANT?
The root systems extended network provides several benefits to the plants colonized by the mycorrhizae.
PLANT PROTECTION –
A plant with an easier access to nutrients is healthier and stronger and therefore better quipped to fight off pathogens and diseases.
Roots that have mycorrhiza spreads over available space more rapidly, which in turn results in the reduction of plant transplant shock, faster rooting development and an increase in survival rate.
SOIL NUTRIENTS & WATER:
The plants can’t directly use the minuet amount of phosphorus contained in the soil. Mycorrhiza transforms or solubilizes the phosphorus contained in the soil to the benefit of the plant. Roots have more area to absorb the nutrients and water, therefore the plant development and growth are improved, just as flowering and fruitification.
