Forms a secondary root system radiating from colonized plant roots into the surrounding soil, thereby increasing the nutrient transfer.
Increases the active absorption surface of the root system by several hundred times
Helps plants to retrieve water and nutrients from much larger volumes of soil, particularly phosphates in arid soils with high P sorption
Reduces transplant stress & mortality ; provides greater tolerance towards salt and drought
Improves tolerance to root pathogens, including bacteria & nematodes.
