It’s popular knowledge that cover crops play a role in improving soil health — but do you understand the importance of mycorrhizal fungi as covers do their job?
Cover Crop Coach Steve Groff will lead a discussion that defines what arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) is, what it does for plant growth, and the factors that discourage or encourage AMF — including what cover crop species are hosts and those that are not.
Growers Tannis and Derek Axten from Axten Farms will also share what they’ve been doing on their farm to understand AMF colonization so they can manage it better on their operation in western Canada.
