Nutrient Efficiency in Legumes
Nutrient efficiency level is the measure of how well a plant is able to utilize available nutrients. The beneficial mycorrhizal fungi in MycoApply® strengthen and extend the hyphal network of the plant, allowing it to better absorb available and unavailable nutrients and transport these nutrients to the plant roots. This activity increases the uptake and availability of nutrients and improves the plant’s expended energy / nutrient uptake ratio.
In legumes, access to phosphorus is key in nodulation and production quality. MycoApply helps increase phosphorus availability when the plant needs it for nodulation. 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.
