Endomycorrhizal Fungi

This helpful fungi forms a symbiotic relationship with most varieties of plants and grows itself into the soil and roots to help with nutrient transportation and water absorption

Forms symbiotic relationships with approximately 85% of plant families

Pairs with most commercially produced plants, including green, leafy, and fruiting or flowering plants

Penetrates into the root cortex and forms nutrient exchange structures within the root cells (arbuscules, vessicles, etc)

Key Benefits of Mycorrhizal Fungi

Root System Growth

  • Mycorrhizal fungi support faster plant establishment
  • Mycorrhizal hyphae access water and nutrients beyond the root zone and deliver them to the plant’s vascular network
  • Increases absorption area by as much as 50 times
  • Increases overall root biomass

Nutrient Efficiency

  • Mycorrhizal hyphae absorb and actively deliver nutrients directly to the roots
  • Improves utilization of soil nutrients including Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, and micronutrients

    Water Absorption

    • Mycorrhizal hyphae absorb and transport soil moisture from beyond the root zone to the plant’s roots
    • The Mycorrhizal symbioses increases the plant’s effective water utilization capability
    • Improved tolerance to stress
    • Greater resistance to drought
