What are Mycorrhizae? 

Mycorrhizae are a type of symbiotic relationship between fungi and plant roots. The fungus provides essential nutrients and water to the plant in exchange for carbohydrates produced by photosynthesis. This mutual relationship helps plants thrive in nutrient-poor soils and provides numerous other benefits to both the plant and the ecosystem.

Mycorrhizae are a vital component of healthy plant growth and soil ecology. Our website is dedicated to bringing you the latest research and information on mycorrhizae and how they can benefit your plants and garden.​

Benefits of Mycorrhizae

Mycorrhizae are symbiotic relationships between fungi and the roots of most plants. The fungal hyphae penetrate the root cells and provide the plant with essential nutrients, such as phosphorus and nitrogen, in exchange for sugars produced by the plant through photosynthesis.

  • Increased nutrient uptake: The fungal hyphae of mycorrhizae increase the surface area of plant roots, allowing plants to absorb more nutrients, such as phosphorus and nitrogen, from the soil.

  • Increased water uptake: Mycorrhizal fungi help plants absorb more water, which is especially important in dry or drought conditions.

  • Improved plant growth and health: Studies have shown that mycorrhizal plants grow faster and have better overall health compared to non-mycorrhizal plants.

  • Enhanced soil fertility: Mycorrhizae help to improve soil fertility by breaking down organic matter and releasing essential nutrients into the soil.

  • Protection against pathogens: Mycorrhizae can help protect plants from soil-borne pathogens and improve overall plant immunity.

  • Enhanced plant stress tolerance: Mycorrhizae can help plants better tolerate environmental stressors, such as drought and high salinity levels.

Overall, mycorrhizae play a crucial role in maintaining healthy plant growth and productivity and are an essential component of many ecosystems.

Enhance Your Plant's Potential with Arbuscular Mycorrhizae

Are you looking to unlock the full potential of your plants and crops? Do you want to boost their growth, increase nutrient uptake, and improve overall plant health? Look no further! RootMax Mycorrhizae offers you a cutting-edge solution through the power of arbuscular mycorrhizae.

What Is Arbuscular Mycorrhizae?

Arbuscular mycorrhizae, often referred to as AM, is a remarkable natural symbiosis between plants and certain types of fungi, specifically Glomeromycota. This beneficial relationship has been around for millions of years, and it's a game-changer for growers of all kinds.

How Does It Work?

In an AM association, the fungus forms intricate networks of hyphae (tiny filaments) that extend into the plant's root system. These networks act like a secondary root system, significantly increasing the root's capacity to absorb water and nutrients from the soil.

Why Choose RootMax Mycorrhizae?

1. Enhanced Nutrient Uptake: Our premium arbuscular mycorrhizae products ensure that your plants can access essential nutrients like phosphorus, nitrogen, and micronutrients more efficiently. This leads to faster growth and improved overall health.

2. Drought Resistance: Arbuscular mycorrhizae help plants absorb water more effectively, making them more resilient during periods of drought or water stress.

3. Soil Health: By fostering beneficial soil microorganisms, our mycorrhizal products contribute to long-term soil health and sustainability.

4. Increased Yields: Whether you're a farmer, gardener, or landscaper, you can expect increased yields, healthier plants, and more robust blooms with RootMax Mycorrhizae.

5. Eco-Friendly: Our products are environmentally friendly, reducing the need for chemical fertilizers and promoting sustainable agriculture.

6. Easy Application: RootMax Mycorrhizae is user-friendly and can be applied during planting, transplanting, or through irrigation systems.

7. Proven Results: Countless growers have experienced the benefits of arbuscular mycorrhizae, and RootMax is at the forefront of this revolution in plant health.

What is the difference between Mycorrhizae and Arbuscular Mycorrhizae?

There is a difference between mycorrhizae and arbuscular mycorrhizae (AM). Mycorrhizae is a broader term that encompasses several types of symbiotic associations between fungi and plant roots, whereas arbuscular mycorrhizae is a specific type of mycorrhizal association.

Here are the key differences:

  1. Scope:

    • Mycorrhizae: Mycorrhizae refers to a broad category of fungal-plant root symbioses. It includes various types of mycorrhizal associations, each involving different groups of fungi.

    • Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (AM): AM is a specific subgroup of mycorrhizae that involves a particular type of fungi known as Glomeromycota.

  2. Fungal Groups:

    • Mycorrhizae: Mycorrhizae can involve different types of fungi, including ectomycorrhizae (associated with trees), ericoid mycorrhizae (associated with Ericaceae plants), and arbuscular mycorrhizae (associated with a wide range of plants).

    • Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (AM): AM specifically involves fungi from the Glomeromycota phylum. These fungi are characterized by the presence of structures called arbuscules within plant root cells.

  3. Host Range:

    • Mycorrhizae: Mycorrhizal associations can be formed with a wide range of plant species, and the type of mycorrhiza formed may vary depending on the plant and fungal species involved.

    • Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (AM): AM associations are formed with a broad spectrum of plants, including many agricultural crops, grasses, and wild plants. They are among the most common and widespread mycorrhizal associations in nature.

  4. Structures:

    • Mycorrhizae: Different mycorrhizal associations may have distinct structures, such as Hartig nets in ectomycorrhizae, arbutoid mycorrhizae in ericoid mycorrhizae, and arbuscules in arbuscular mycorrhizae.

    • Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (AM): AM associations are characterized by the presence of arbuscules, which are highly branched structures formed within the plant root cells. These structures facilitate nutrient exchange between the fungus and the host plant.

In summary, mycorrhizae is a general term encompassing various types of fungal-plant root symbioses, while arbuscular mycorrhizae specifically refers to a type of mycorrhizal association involving Glomeromycota fungi and a wide range of host plants.
