We at Symbiotic Sciences provide expert technical and scientific support. We optimize the benefits of using Mycorrhizae by working with the specific needs and conditions of our customers.

Concerns are growing not only about the long-term sustainability of agriculture but also of its survival. We at Symbiotic Sciences are aware of the grim situation but food is only thing that cannot be left out. Indifferent to the problem, human society today demands high quality food so the big question rises. How to produce high quality food in most sustainable and economical way causing least possible damage to the Environment? We have to realize now that time has come to overhaul the strategy for increasing crop yields and sustaining them at higher levels.

Mycorrhizae biofertilizer

In vitro technology mycorrhiza biofertilizer is a multipurpose and multifaceted product—it is a soil conditioner, bio-remediator, and bio-control agent and has wide applications in agriculture, plantations, horticulture, forestry, and biofuels. There is more—it has shown immense potential in reclamation of stressed ecosystems like fly ash dumps, sites loaded with alkali chlor sludge or distillery effluents, and other man-made wastelands.

Mycorrhiza is a symbiotic, non-pathogenic, permanent association between the roots of land plants and a group of fungi. Mycorrhiza Technology is an innovative invention offering a partial but substantial substitute to chemical fertilizers.

  • Provides an edge to plants to thrive better offering enhanced yield and establishment in nutrient poor conditions.
  • Facilitates higher uptake of major and minor nutrients to reduce chemical fertilizer input in farming.
  • A partial substitute to Phosphatic fertilizers and several other nutrients promoting yield significantly.
  • Extremely beneficial to almost all cultivated plants as it has a broad plant host range
Why mycorrhizae unique over other bio fertilizers ?

Mycorrhiza: Mycorrhiza is a fungal biofertilizer

Other biofertilizers: All others are bacterial biofertilizers
Mycorrhiza: It is applicable to a wide range of plants from floricultural, horticultural, silivicultural, to agricultural species including legumes, tree and plant species, except a few like mustard (Brassica sp.) and
Sugar beet (Beta vulgaris)

Other biofertilizers: Products are not specific to crops or plant type.
Mycorrhiza: It has easy storage at ambient temperature

Other biofertilizers: Require low temperature for storage hence are cost ineffective.
Mycorrhiza: It has prolonged shelf life at room temperature

Other biofertilizers: Shelf life is limited under strict condition of maximum storage

Capable of relieving agriculturalists of their woes, arbuscular mycorrhizae are a group of the most common symbiotic fungi and represent a permanent association with roots of plants.

The only known fungal system categorized as a biofertilizer, mycorrhizae provide plant roots with extended arms that help them tap soil nutrients that are otherwise beyond their reach. For plants, this means better uptake of phosphorus, more nitrogen, and greater availability of other micronutrients—all different ways of fighting tough physical conditions, enriching soil, increasing health, and decreasing dependence on chemical fertilizers.

Mycorrhiza is the only known fungal system, which is categorized as a biofertilizer. It's hyphae can extend much beyond a few meters away the plant root zone and thus can acquire nutrients from a much wider soil area. In soil, mycorrhiza produces vegetative structures like chlamydospores and zygospores, which become dormant during the period of environmental stress and germinate with the return of favorable conditions.Thus, they are better equipped for combating the unfavorable conditions and have longer shelf lives asmcompared to the bacteria based product.

Mycorrhiza is a broad-spectrum non-specific organism. A single species is known to colonize 85% of land plants. It has a broad ecological adaptability and is known to occur in deserts as well as arctic, temperate, tropical and other inhospitable habitats.

Other benefits of Mycorrhiza Mycorrhiza are known to increasethe nitrogen-fixing potential of legumes when given togetherwith Rhizobium. The mycorrhiza first stimulates the nodule bacteria in a sequential process by increasing the tissue phosphorus content; this results in improved nodulation. There are also reports of positive interaction between Azotobacter and mycorrhiza fungi. Mycorrhiza colonization favourably affects the population of these free-living N-fixing bacteria and thus stimulates better growth of plants. Mycorrhiza also have a stimulatory effect with different non-legume N -fixing plant species. In Casuarina sp., the double inoculation of Mycorrhiza and Frankia improves plant growth and nodulation. Two groups of bacteria, chemo -organotrophs, such as some Pseudomonas and Bacillus sp., and chemo-lithotrophs, such as Thiobacillus sp ., are able to solubilize insoluble phosphates. When Mycorrhiza applied in addition to these bacteria, the plant performance increases. Mycorrhiza favorers the early establishment and efficacy of these bacteria. The cumulative effect of these fungi should thus be exploited on a large scale in the form of biofertilizers with plants to increase the nitrogen - fixing potential of legumes and non-legume plant species as well as with different phosphate solubilizers.
