MycoPhyto: Mycorrhizal Fungi Increase Fruits, Vegetables, and Grain Productivity

Justine Lipuma, a passionate advocate for sustainable agriculture, set-up MycoPhyto in 2015 with the mission to promote the use of mycorrhizal fungi.

MycoPhyto has developed a line of soil additives that contain specific strains of mycorrhizal fungi. These additives can be applied to a wide variety of crops, including fruits, vegetables, and grains, and have been shown to have a significant impact on plant health and productivity.

One of the key benefits of MycoPhyto's products is that they can enhance nutrient uptake in plants. This is particularly important in soils that are nutrient-poor, as it allows plants to access the resources they need to grow and thrive. By improving nutrient uptake, MycoPhyto's additives can also help reduce fertilizer use, which can have a positive impact on the environment.

In addition to enhancing nutrient uptake, MycoPhyto's products can also help plants resist disease. Mycorrhizal fungi produce compounds that are toxic to certain pathogens, and by promoting the growth of these fungi, MycoPhyto's additives can help protect plants from harmful diseases and pests.

In one study, researchers found that the use of MycoPhyto's additives resulted in a 15-20% increase in yield in tomato crops. In another study, MycoPhyto's additives were shown to improve the drought tolerance of maize plants, allowing them to survive in conditions that would normally be too dry.

Given the growing demand for sustainable agriculture, MycoPhyto will hopefully make a significant impact on the future of food production and keep some of its research findings accessible to all.
