Mycorrhizal bio-fertilizers are soil amendments that contain beneficial fungi called mycorrhizae. These fungi form symbiotic relationships with plant roots and can help to enhance plant growth and health in a variety of ways.
Here are some of the benefits of using mycorrhizal bio-fertilizers:
- Improved nutrient uptake: Mycorrhizal fungi can help to increase the surface area of plant roots, allowing them to absorb more nutrients and water from the soil.
- Enhanced disease resistance: Mycorrhizal fungi can help to stimulate the plant's natural defense mechanisms, making it more resistant to diseases and pests.
- Increased plant growth and yield: By improving nutrient uptake and plant health, mycorrhizal bio-fertilizers can help to increase plant growth and yield.
- Improved soil health: Mycorrhizal fungi can also help to improve soil structure and nutrient cycling, leading to overall improvements in soil health.
