Why con­trolled my­c­or­rhiza­tion ?

My­c­or­rhizae, sym­bi­otic as­so­ci­a­tion be­tween plant and fungi, oc­curs nat­u­rally in tra­di­tional nurs­eries. Most often it con­cerns fungi which is not useful for the later de­vel­op­ment of the plants.

In the forest how­ever, the my­c­or­rhizae are abun­dant and nec­es­sary for good tree growth but they dis­ap­pear very quickly after 1 to 2 years after clear cut­ting.

My­c­or­rhizae are also ab­sent from an­cient agri­cul­tural land and in per­turbed sites(roads, mo­tor­ways, mines, urban waste­land).Logo INRA

What is con­trolled my­c­or­rhiza­tion

Under these con­di­tions tra­di­tional plants can en­counter enor­mous prob­lems of re­covery and growth, on the other hand my­c­or­rhizal plants with se­lected stocks(Con­trolled My­c­or­rhiza­tion) ben­efit from many ad­van­tages im­proving their per­for­mance in a crop.
