Hello everyone! As an other dad essay today dad wants me to write an essay on mycorrhizae fungi so here it is!
A mycorrhiza/ Mycorrhizae Fungi is a symbiotic association between a fungus and a plant. The term mycorrhiza refers to the role of the fungus in the plant’s rhizosphere, its root system. Mycorrhizae play important roles in plant nutrition, soil biology and soil chemistry. So technically it is just a mushroom that works like a restaurant it delivers the plant. So let’s say the neighbouring Spruce is low on water he “calls” the Mycorrhizae Fungi and tells it it’s order/ it needs water and the nearest Mycorrhizae plant will deliver it if it has some. That’s why on our farm we practice no tilling because tilling the soil will kill the Fungi and the plants will have a harder time to grow. Wanna hear a joke? Who does “Myco” call to get some jokes? Fungi. Ha ha ha that’s a good one.
The end hope you enjoyed!
