Why Arbuscular Mycorrhizas (Mycorrhizal Fungi ) can play such an important role in your plants. They are root multipliers.

You will see more and more of this at all levels of agriculture, whether it's in your back yard or a thousand acre farm. The basic premise is that you want to keep the soil bacteria and fungi alive at all times and that requires a live root system to feed them. There is quickly mounting evidence that this method increases yields and disease resistance while it decreases run-off and pooling - water is absorbed into the soil quicker with no-till. This requires less fertilizer and drain tile(on large farms), thus increasing a farm's profit. In a backyard garden setting, it means better veggies, less maintenance, and better soils for the next crop.

Another good one from John. He installs and demos a Earthmister system which supposedly saves 20% OVER other drip systems.
