Nutrient Efficiency in Oil Palm

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.

Nutrients help oil palm in a variety of ways including faster seedling establishment, quicker to fruit production and more consistent bunch quality once full production is achieved. By expanding the root’s mass, MycoApply’s hyphal network efficiently transports nutrients and water back to the plant for optimal utilization.
