The next revolution in the field of agriculture may be started by fungi. According to a latest research, the fungi help increasing food production for the ever increasing needs of people without using huge amounts of fertilizers. Ian Sanders of the University of Lusanne in Switzerland has studied that a type of fungi called mycorrhizal fungi found in symbiosis with plant roots. When these fungi symbiose with plants, they tend to develop because the fungi take the essential nutrient phosphate for the plant. With the help of technological breakthroughs, scientists now can produce huge quantities of this fungus in a gel form for easy transportation. The tests are going on to check the effectiveness of this gel on crops in Colombia. With this gel they can produce a huge yield of potato crops and is very effective.
