Technology offer : Use of medicinal or aromatic plants for enhanced arboriculture
Looking toward the optimization of mediterranean forest systems, IRD and CIRAD have discovered an innovative method to stimulate mycorrhizal symbiosis of fruit and forest trees.
This co-culture based technology, uses medicinal or aromatic plants (from Lamiaceae family) to improve the growth of the chosen tree variety.
After a pre-culture phase of the "nurse" plant in a given soil, the target species is introduced in this soil. Several months later, the root system of the target plant has seen its mycorrizha development improved and the plant growth is consequently faster.
