Beneficial symbiosis between a mycorrhizal fungus and roots.
MYCORRHIZAE are a beneficial association between a mycorrhizal fungus and roots. The mycorrhizal spores germinate in the soil and produce filaments (hyphae) which will enter into root cells (Figure 1). This association will allow the formation of an intra and extra-radical network of filaments that will explore the soil and access more nutrients and water, and transfer them to the plant (Figure 2).
The mycorrhizal hyphae are like two-way roads allowing the circulation of water and nutrients toward plant roots, which in return give sugars to mycorrhizae.
Natural bacteria that fixes nitrogen and makes it available to the plant.

Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar viciae, Bradyrhizobium japonicum
RHIZOBIUM are a bacteria that live and thrive in symbiosis in root nodules produced by the plant. These nodules house the bacteria responsible for fixing atmospheric nitrogen and making it available to the plant.
The tripartite symbiosis is the biological interaction between MYCORRHIZAE, RHIZOBIUM and the PLANT.
Nutrients and water are essential components for effective plant growth. By adding biological active ingredients, such as beneficial mycorrhizae and rhizobium, an earlier and efficient use of water and nutrients will help plants reach optimum crop yield.
By enhancing root system growth and creating a network of filaments, mycorrhizae help plants to uptake more nutrients, such as phosphorus, and increase the nodulation process for the rhizobium.
