Title: USE OF SYNERGISTIC MICROORGANISMS AND NUTRIENTS TO PRODUCE SIGNALS THAT FACILITATE THE GERMINATION AND PLANT ROOT COLONIZATION OF MYCORRHIZAL FUNGI IN PHOSPHORUS RICH ENVIRONMENTS
Abstract:
A composition of matter comprising: a combination of a phytate and a plurality of microorganisms comprising a Trichoderma virens fungus, a Bacillus amyloliquefaciens bacterium, and one or a plurality of mycorrhizae fungi that is placed in the vicinity of a plant root in a manner that allows the microorganisms in the composition of matter to colonize said plant root; and a method for increasing plant yield comprising: placing a combination of a phytate and a plurality of microorganisms comprising a Trichoderma virens fungus, a Bacillus amyloliquefaciens bacterium, and one or a plurality of mycorrhizae fungi in the vicinity of a plant root in a manner that allows the microorganisms in the composition of matter to colonize said plant root.
