The relationship between fungus and root is critical. Unfortunately, unnatural conditions such as concrete, asphalt, roadsides, and sidewalk cutouts, as well as trenching, drain fields, air pollution, shopping malls, business districts, and suburban developments adversely affect the presence and abundance of mycorrhizal fungi.
Fabricated environments often suffer from disturbance, compaction, topsoil loss, and the absence of quality organic matter. All of these are conditions that reduce the habitat necessary for the mycorrhizal fungus to survive and thrive.
Artificial landscapes affect the mycorrhizal relationship in two fundamental ways: first, they isolate the plant from beneficial mycorrhizal fungi available in natural settings and, secondly, they increase plant stress and the need for water, nutrients, and soil structure mediated by their belowground partners. Additionally, many nursery and agricultural soils lack mycorrhizae due to excessive and long-term uses of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
We solve these conditions by returning the soil and root environment to the state found in undisturbed ecosystems. The increased uptake capacity for nutrients, fertilizers, and water allowed by our sustainable fertilizer ultimately results in a decreased need for these essentials and increased plant health and vigor. Our organic fertilizer is made of nutrient powder components and is typically used in the spring and fall.
