Trees and Microbes talk at January 16th Guild Meeting

We will be having our usual January 16th Guild Meeting at St. Stephen’s Church in Monona. 6:30-9 pm


Adding the proper biological products to established or newly transplanted plants can result in a wide range of benefits to the plant’s health, such as increased water uptake, healthier soils, increased nutrient accumulation, and transplant survival.  We will talk about how microbes enhance plant ability to use the nutrients available to them in a higher capacity, and how they create symbiotic relationships with root systems, specifically talking about Mycorrhizae and Trichoderma fungi, when they are deficient and how to add them to root systems effectively.
