Solution

Mycorrhiza refers to the symbiotic association of fungi with plants. These fungal symbionts help in the plant growth by absorbing phosphorus from the soil and passing it on to the plants. Plants having such associations show some other benefits also, such as resistance against root-borne pathogens, tolerance to drought and salinity, and an overall increase in plant growth and development.
