  • increased uptake of nutrients and water,
  • increased soil biological activity,
  • improved soil structure and aeration,
  • reduced effects from drought,
  • reduced effects from root pathogens,
  • reduced chemical inputs and environmental damage.

What are mycorrhizal fungi?

  • Mycorrhiza literally means “fungus root”
  • These are beneficial fungi found in undisturbed soils
  • These fungi form a symbiotic, mutually beneficial 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 both 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 surface area available for nutrient uptake
  • They make nutrients soluble which are normally not accessible to plant roots
  • They influence the soil environment covered by the fungal filaments
  • Encouraging growth of beneficial bacteria and other non disease causing fungi
  • They ward off unwanted organisms which can cause plants diseases
  • Such as eelworms and root rot
  • They produce a biological glue
  • That promotes soil stability and increases moisture penetration and aeration of the soil
