Mycorrhiza & soil bacteria

Mycorrhizae is a mutual association of symbiotic type, existing between certain fungi and roots of some plants. Fungi are associated with plant roots and help in the absorption of water and minerals from the soil. In this way, the plants can absorb more water and adapt to drier climates, in exchange, fungi receive from the plants carbohydrates and amino acids essential to their development.

In conventional agriculture with agrochemicals, the use of fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides and excessive tillage causes soil conditions to be profoundly altered and the favourable conditions for the development of the symbiosis fungus - root is either very weak or none.

In organic farming, since synthetic products are not used, the soil conditions to mycorrhiza are more favourable. The easiest and most effective way to apply mycorrhizae is during sowing: To the substrate we use in the seedbed we will add the bacteria, so that from the moment the roots emerge from the seeds, they come into contact with fungi and establish the symbiosis quickly.
