Teaming with Fungi: The Organic Grower’s Guide to Mycorrhizae
Improved drought tolerance, resistance to disease, and increased fruiting are just a few of the ways mycorrhizal fungi can enhance plant performance. Bestselling author Jeff Lowenfels clearly explains exactly how beneficial fungi can make or break a plant’s success, and how to best optimize the advantages. Applicable to all types of cultivation–from agriculture to horticulture and ornamental gardens to legal cannabis propagation–Teaming with Fungi reveals the key role mycorrhizal fungi play in growing successful plants.
Teaming with Fungi is an important guide to mycorrhizae and the role they play in agriculture, horticulture, and hydroponics. Almost every plant in a garden forms a relationship with fungi, and many plants would not exist without their fungal partners. By better understanding the relationship, gardeners can take advantage of the benefits of fungi, which include an increased uptake in nutrients, resistance to drought, earlier fruiting, and more. Learn how the fungi interact with plants, how to grow their own, and how best to employ them in the home garden.
„Accomplishes what few other books have – helping growers use mycorrhizae to improve the immune systems of plants.“
