Fungi vs Bacteria

We always get questions like: "How does ACF-SR differ from fungi based products?" Or, "my soil is bacteria dominant, and low in fungi populations. Why would I need more bacteria?"


Fungi and bacteria are both very important for overall soil health. Both need each other, but there are significant differences between the two.


By feeding your soil with function-focused bacteria (ACF-SR), you are promoting natural processes that enhance the right fungal activity for soil health and plant growth. Below, we talk about this in more, technical detail:


What's the difference between fungi and bacteria?:


Germination conditions for fungi:


In fungi, the right environmental temperature, available water/moisture and, the presence of specific nutrients are the most important environmental factors that aid spore germination. Plant roots may supply specific nutrients to fungi to aid germination. Other nutrient availability is provided by bacteria.
