Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (what a great name) gets UNH research treatment
Posted by David Brooks | Thursday, May 22, 2014
The NH Agriculture Experiment Station at UNH is pondering the interaction between plant roots and soil microbes, including a type of symbiotic fungus that lives with roots called arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, which influence soil nitrogen availability. They then will look at how these processes can be managed to maximize crop nitrogen availability while minimizing environmental nitrogen losses.
They recently got a $482,500 grant to support the research, reports UNH.
