Abiotic Stress Mitigation for Stone Fruits
There are a variety of stresses a plant can experience through the production cycle, many dependent on growing region and the unique production systems for a given crop. The symbiotic relationship arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) create with a plant helps to minimize the impact of these stresses, particularly when multiple stresses occur at the same time. Water and nutrient deficiencies and soil toxicity are common examples of abiotic stresses that the plant may incur during a growing season.
For stone fruits, if the plant is stressed, the sugars will convert to starch leading to drastically reduced quality. By strengthening the plant through root’s access to nutrients, MycoApply® helps mitigate the stress and maintain fruit quality.
MycoApply helps plants take up water and nutrients efficiently under stressful conditions with minimal energy requirements from the plant. This stress mitigation benefit optimizes the productivity capabilities of plants for yield and quality.
