Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are soil organisms that live symbiotically with most plants. Providing them with benefits, giving them advantages over non-mycorrhizal plants, making it easier for the plant to take up nutrients that are not readily available or have little mobility in the soil, avoiding the action of pathogenic microorganisms in the root, increasing the tolerance of plants to conditions of abiotic stresses in the soil. They can be used as biological control agents to reduce the populations of other organisms that cause damage and diseases in agricultural crops, these rhizosphere organisms are capable of colonizing the roots of at least 80% of terrestrial plant species by establishing an interaction with them mutualistic type.
