WHAT IS A MYCORRHIZA?

For Sustainable Plant Cultivation In Agriculture, Silviculture, Horticulture, Landscaping, Recultivation, Reforestation, Reclamation 

Mycorrhiza is a symbiotic (beneficial for both partners) relationship between soil fungi and plant roots.

Many millions years before when starting to occupy terrestrial  conditions, the majority of plant species in the Nature have developed a mycorrhizal way of obtaining nutrients from soil. Fungi grow into roots and develop an extensive network of  mycelium (tiny hyphal filaments) radiating from the roots to  surrounding soil.

This tremendously increases the soil volume available for plant nutrient acquisition, i.e. root systemís active surface area, therefore improving nutrient and water uptake, what leads to improved health status and vitality of plants.
