SR2 Mycorrhizae & Rhizobacteria
What is Mycorrhizae? A naturally occurring beneficial fungus that forms a symbiotic relationship with the plants. It attaches to the roots and becomes extensions of the root system. This dramatically expands access to moisture and nutrients from the soil. In return, the host plant feeds the fungi with sugars and organic substances.
