Nutrient Efficiency in Grapes
Nutrient efficiency is the measure of how well a plant is able to utilize available nutrients in the soil. The four-species consortium of 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 and transport them into the plant. This symbiosis enhances the uptake and availability of nutrients and improves the plant’s expended energy – to – nutrient uptake ratio.
Grapes require consistent access to nutrients and water required for fruit and sugar development. As MycoApply extends the active root zone access in grape production systems, the hyphal network helps transport a larger volume of nutrients and water back to the plant, leading to an increase in berry size and a higher quality fruit.
