Mycorrhizal Fungi, This Years Hottest New Product For Gardeners!

Bookmark This Article to Delicious

Mycorrhizal Fungi has remained relatively unheard of except for a few serious Gardening buffs and erosion control professionals, even though it has been around since creation.

In nature trees, plants and grasses flourish without any intervention from man. Think about that for a moment. Consider, our nations great plains, national forests and vast grasslands. How is it that things grow so well without any interference from man? Don�t they understand that they are supposed to have synthetic fertilizer to grow? Silly, I know but isn�t that the way we have been told to think? Want a great lawn? Then spray this chemical on it and make it look green really fast! Want big tomatoes? Then use this miracle growth chemical!

When what was once natural habitat has been disturbed there is a very hard time getting new trees and sod to grow much less flourish. Wonder why that is? When top soil is stripped or cultivated, naturally occurring micro-organisms are wiped out. Vast networks of Mycorrhizal fungi, bacteria, protozoa and nematodes are gone. The results? Newly introduced plants and turf grow stunted and weak. They become targets of disease and insect infestations otherwise known as natural selection. Nature�s way of culling out the weak and ensuring the survival of the fittest.

About this time, someone gets the bright idea to spray some chemicals to make things look nicer. Dead foliage and grass clippings build up into layers of thatch because there is nothing to decompose them naturally. Waterways become polluted with Algae overgrowth due to synthetic fertilizer leeching away. Both animals and humans become exposed to chemicals documented to cause numerous health issues.

We�ve spent over forty years proving that modern chemical farming methods don�t work. They destroy the very soil fertility needed for healthy growth. In turn they supply the market with produce that is practically devoid of nutrition. And just think, you get the added bonus of ingesting chemical residue from all the herbicides and pesticides!

So what do you do? First, get your soil tested and follow the recommendations. This is especially important for those who sow directly into tilled native soil. Your soil test will reveal what the key elements of your soil chemistry are. This is your first step because it helps you determine what needs to be done and in what order. In addition to soil chemistry your test will give a reading for organic matter (OM).

Researchers tell us that up to ninety eight percent of a plants growth comes directly from organic matter. That makes this a very important component when it comes to increasing your soils fertility.

After you balance the soil chemistry and provide organic matter to support basic life it is time to re-introduce Mycorrhizal fungi back into the environment. Now you are well on your way to the most awesome, organic produce you�ve ever grown! There is really nothing difficult about Gardening. It is simply a matter of working in harmony with nature instead of trying to find a short cut.
