Project Title

Needs-based, site-specific application of mycorrhiza to increase yield stability in agriculture using high-resolution soil mapping technologies

Project description

The project Precision-AMF project contributes to sustainable, resource-efficient and efficient nutrient management in conventional and organic agriculture. The planned development can help to reduce the pollution of groundwater and surface water with mineral fertilizers. Motivation is the interest (and necessity) of agricultural practice to target plant-strengthening mycorrhizal fungi where soil structure is particularly requiring such plant biostimulants. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are the most widespread symbiosis between fungi and plants - 90% of all plant species use the support of fungi, especially in stress situations. The goal is to use GPS-controlled sensor technology (soil structure analysis) to develop a process that enables the site-specific application. New mycorrhiza formulations adapted to soil type are being developed. In difficult field sections, soil life, plant health and nutrient uptake is systematically and sustainably improved, thus ensuring yield stability.
