WHAT ARE MYCORRHIZAL FUNGI?

  • Mycorrhiza literally means “fungus root”.

  • These are beneficial fungi found in undisturbed soils.

  • These fungi form a symbiotic relationship with 90% of all plant roots.

  • The host plant receives mineral nutrients from the fungus.

  • The fungus obtains sugars from the host plant.

  • There are several types of mycorrhizal associations.

  • The most commonly encountered are the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi.

HOW DO THEY FUNCTION?

  • The fungus grows by means of fungal filaments called hyphae.

  • The filaments grow inside and outside of the roots.

  • The fungus is intimately associated with the plant roots, providing a link between the soil and the plant.

  • They extend the plant rooting system improving root functions.

  • They allow for better exploitation of the soil environment.

  • They increase the surface area available for nutrient uptake.

  • They make nutrients soluble which are normally not accessible to roots.

  • They influence the soil environment covered by the fungal filaments.

  • Encourages growth of beneficial bacteria and other non-disease causing fungi.

  • They ward off unwanted organisms which can cause plants diseases.

  • They produce a biological glue that promotes soil stability and increases moisture penetration and aeration of the soil.
