Next Gen Mycorrhizae Products
Our focus is on harnessing the untapped potential of mycorrhizae for sustainable agriculture. Mycorrhiza is a fungal system that forms a symbiotic relationship with plant roots and helps them tap nutrients from the soil that would otherwise have been inaccessible to the plant roots. We have successfully translated the nutrient-tapping potential of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) and developed a technology that eventually produces mycorrhizae-based biofertilizer. The in vitro mass production technology of our is culmination of research & development carried out at the Centre for Mycorrhizal Culture Collection (CMCC), which is a Mycorrhizal Bioresources Centre for managing the next-generation germplasm bank. The CMCC aims at conservation of mycorrhizal biodiversity by means of collection, propagation, isolation, characterization, and maintenance of cultures under in-situ conditions Today, the centre houses more than 350 isolates of AMF and 257 isolates of Ectomycorrhizal Fungi (EMF) collected from various parts of Asia, Europe and America (for more details please visit: http://mycorrhizae.org.in/cmcc/).
