Photos show avocado plants grown in bags with and without mycorrhizae fungi showing clear evidence of the benefits of using mycorrhizae fungi.
Mycorrhizae are symbiotic relationships that form between fungi and plants. The fungi colonize the root system of a host plant, providing increased water and nutrient absorption capabilities while the plant provides the fungus with carbohydrates formed from photosynthesis.
The mycorrhizal plants are often more resistant to diseases, especially those diseases caused by pathogens in the soil.
Mycorrhizal fungi are important because they frequently increase plant nutrient uptake up take of water, phosphorus and/or nitrogen to help plant growth.
Benefits for Plants. Mycorrhizae are able to create a vast connection between the roots of a plant and with the soil around them, which allows for the fungus to uptake nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus for the plant and increase the surface area of the roots.
Some fungi help trees and other plants to grow. Because the fine threads that make fungal mycelium can spread over long distances, fungi can capture water and nutrients from far away and bring them back along the fine threads and close to plant roots.
