Benefits

  • Rhizobium fixes Nitrogen in the nodules
  • Increases root growth
  • Mycorrhizal fungi produce hyphae that penetrate root cells to produce exchange structures
  • Mycorrhizal fungi produce hyphae that extend into the soil and increase absorptive capacity for water and mineral nutrients (P, Cu, Zn)
  • Mycorrhizal fungi improve the plant’s absorption capabilities by transferring directly to root via mycorrhizal network
  • Active rhizosphere: 5cm
  • Increases yield
  • Increases crop quality
