Plants have evolved over the years to develop several mechanisms that help them interact with microorganisms to acquire nutrients from the soil. One of the most widespread symbiotic relationships occurs between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and most major agricultural crops and herbaceous and shrub species in natural ecosystems. This mutually beneficial relationship, known as arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis, facilitates nutrient uptake and exchange between the plant and the fungi. The plant sends carbon (e.g., sugar, lipids) to the fungus, and in return, the fungus provides the plant with inorganic nutrients and water.
