Mycorrhiza is a symbiotic association between plants and fungi. This presentation will discuss the benefits of using mycorrhizal fungi in ornamental production. Attendees will learn about why mycorrhizae are important for ornamental plant vitality, and how this symbiotic relationship can benefit plant nutrient uptake and utilization, increase nutrient availability, and even buffer the effects of over-fertilization. You will also learn how industry professionals can utilize this natural, organic, sustainable technology in their own professional operations, discuss the frequently asked questions and concerns, and how plant producers can adjust their fertility regimens to maximize the mycorrhizal benefits and return on investment.
