The Global market for Mycorrhiza-based Biofertilizer was valued at USD 202.1 million in 2017 and is expected to register a CAGR of 12.7% during the forecast period (2018-2023). Mycorrhiza is a fungus which establishes symbiotic association between a fungus and the roots of a vascular host plant.
Mycorrhiza is a symbiotic and mutualistic relationship between soil fungi and plant roots. The plants in which this association is seen are corn, carrots, leek, potatoes, beans, soybeans, other legumes, tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, sunflower, strawberries, citrus, apples, peaches, grapes, cotton, coffee, tea, cocoa, sugarcane, forest species, wild plants, and even weeds.
Significance of Mycorrhiza to Plant Nutrition
Mycorrhiza contribute significantly to plant nutrition, particularly to phosphorus uptake. They contribute to the selective absorption of immobile (P, Zn, and Cu) and mobile (S, Ca, K, Fe, Mn, Cl, Br, and N) elements from plants, and to water uptake. In India, commercial mycorrhiza-based biofertilizers are used on large-scale rice production and have resulted in yield increases of around 10% with a 25-50% reduction of fertilizer, considering India’s low phosphorous soils. The use of Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Fungi (AMF) as a biofertilizer has not been widely integrated in the intensive agriculture of North America yet.
Need for Enhanced Yield
The agriculture is facing threats from many factors like changes in climatic conditions, reducing soil fertility, increase in number of plant diseases, usage of pesticides and many other. However, the yield is decreasing continuously due to the above factors. The conventional farming techniques are degrading the quality and making the soil infertile which clearly effects on the yield. Mycorrhiza based biofertilizers have the ability to stimulate the natural processes. These natural processes helps in nutrient uptake, nutrient efficiency, improve tolerance to abiotic stress and crop quality which ultimately have the effect on the yield.
Low shelf life of Mycorrhiza Cells
The shelf life of Mycorrhiza cells in biofertilizers is low, which is one of the major restraints of the Mycorrhiza based biofertilizers market. In order to increase the shelf life of microorganisms, so that the viability of biofertilizers is increased, carrier enrichment is being carried out and new formulations are being developed in the form of liquid, freeze drying, nano-encapsulations, etc. However, since the liquid-based biofertilizers are relatively costly compared to the solid carrier-based biofertilizers, their share is still low.
Key Developments of Mycorrhiza based Biofertilizers Market
- Sep 2017 – Tamil Nadu agriculture department’s carrier based and liquid biofertilizer unit is set to achieve the production target of 100 metric ton of carrier based and 65,000 liters of liquid bio fertilizers.
- Jul 2016 – The National Organic Program, a part of USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service enforces the regulations to be followed in order to ensure the integrity of the USDA organic seal.
