Trichoderma Benefits for Plants
Beneficial Microorganisms Help Improve the Soil
Beneficial microorganisms play a critical role in the life cycle of plants. Beneficial microbes, beneficial bacteria and beneficial fungi, for plants include soil bacteria and soil fungi such as Trichoderma. As we’ll see Trichoderma benefits crops in a number of ways.
These beneficial soil microorganisms help recycle soil nutrients, solubilize vital nutrients such as phosphorus, provide plant growth hormones, and help improve overall soil quality. With all of these Trichoderma benefits, its no wonder more and more farmers, gardeners, and small farm stakeholders are using the power of beneficial Trichoderma.
Specific Trichoderma Benefits
Trichoderma fungi, such as Trichoderma harzainum, convey several important benefits to plants, including:
- Enhances nutrient and water uptake of the plant
- Increases photosynthesis of the host plant
- Provides growth hormones called phytohormones,
- Reduces overall fertilizer needs
- Increase crop yields
- Increases plants ability to weather stresses such as drought
- Increases root mass and root depth.
