Nutrient Efficiency in Stone Fruits
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.
Nutrient efficiency is especially important to stone fruits as the sweetness of the fruit is reliant upon the health of the tree. By expanding the root’s access to nutrients and water in the soil through MycoApply’s hyphal network leads to a sweeter and higher-quality fruit.
The mycorrhizal fungi hyphal network also efficiently transports nutrients and water back to the plant which keeps the availability to the plant optimized for utilization.
