Symbiotic fungi can save farm crops during droughts As many farms worldwide get less and less rainfall per year due to climate change, it is getting harder to keep plants alive in dry seasons. Luckily, the use of mycorrhizal fungi in farming may allow our food crops to find more water during droughts.
What should farmers do to deal with disappearing water? Add fungi to the soil! This recent study sheds light on the use of mycorrhizae to mitigate drought in the farming industry, which is facing increasingly intense water shortages every year.
