Mycorrhizal fungi

Field Trials;
 I am field testing for the 09 corn season with JMU and consultation  Dr. Hepperly at Rodale Institute.

Ten research priorities were identified at the IBI conference, The following priorities I hope to address:
• 1- Economy research/market research
• 2- plant+soil research depending on biochar
• 5- field trials
• 8- application to soil (depending on agricultural or other
systems/remediation`)

Planting date: June 24th.
Two split plots , which each are split into a 20% (27 tons/Ac) & 5% (7 tons/Ac) application rates,
All chars soaked in tarps for 1 month, all chars were mixed 1:2 by volume with finished poultry litter compost and roto-tilled to 5 inch depth.

Mycorrhiza
FNCA Biofertilizer Project Chapter 4 03

Mycorrhizal fungi are species of fungi that intimately
associate with plant roots forming a symbiotic relationship, with the
plant providing sugars for the fungi and the fungi providing nutrients
such as phosphorus, to the plants. Mycorrhizal fungi can absorb,
accumulate and transport large quantities of phosphate within their
hyphae and release to plant cells in root tissue.
