Nutrient Efficiency for Bulb Vegetables
Nutrient efficiency is the measure of how well a plant is able to utilize available nutrients in the soil. The four-species consortium of symbiotic, beneficial mycorrhizal fungi in MycoApply® extends the effective root zone of the plant, allowing it to access available as well as unavailable (chemically bound) nutrients. This symbiosis enhances the uptake and availability of nutrients and improves the plant’s expended energy – to – nutrient uptake ratio.
In general, many bulb vegetables do not produce a large number of fine roots. Thus, bulb vegetables may benefit significantly from the use of MycoApply. By extending the root’s effective zone of access through mycorrhizal fungi hyphae, mycorrhizal fungi allow for better and faster nutrient uptake resulting in a stronger, healthier plant.
