Water Penetration and Holding Capacity for Cane Berries

cane berriesWater penetration and holding capacity are dependent on t soil structure including aggregate stability which allows for water to enter the soil and for the pores of the soil to retain that water.

Cane Berries rely on access to water and nutrients to produce a better-quality fruit. With optimal access to water and nutrients, the fruit will be more consistent in quality size and firmness.

MycoApply® aids the columnal (vertical) formation of the soil structure which allows water to penetrate deeper into the soil profile, as well as promoting pore development that helps retain water until it is absorbed by the plant and/or AMF. In a poorly structured soil, the soil’s platelets lay horizontal instead of vertical which results in the development of hard pans which prevent water to penetrate beyond the hard pan. When a rain event occurs, poorly structured soil will form water-logged areas from pools of water not able to penetrate into the soil like water would for soils with good structure.
