Question

How do mycorrhizae act as biofertilizers? Explain.

Solution

Fungi are also known to form symbiotic associations with plants, this association is called mycorrhiza. The fungal symbiont in these associations absorbs phosphorus from soil and passes it to the plant. Plants having such associations show other benefits also, such as resistance to root-borne pathogens, tolerance to salinity and drought, and an overall increase in plant growth and development.
