Dr. Jill Clapperton Explained Importance of These Microscopic Structures


Mycorrhizae have been part of the rhizosphere for millions of years and now soil ecologists and mycologists are determining the real benefits of these fungi.


Nearly all higher plants live in association with these fungi to more fully extract water, phosphorus, nitrogen and some micronutrients for plant growth. In Strip-Till and No-Till systems, mycorrhizal fungi are of great benefit. In some soils in South America where farmers have been into No-Till practices for 25+ years, fungi are a very large component to the uptake of nutrients.


Are you taking care of your soils to promote better fungal assistance to the plant root?
