Answer :

Mycorrhiza is a type of fungi. It grows in association with the plant roots. This relationship benefits the plants as:

1. Mycorrhiza increases the ability of the roots to absorb nutrients from the soil. This happens because the surface area of the roots increases. In turn absorption capacity also increases.

2. Mycorrhiza releases enzyme that helps to dissolve nutrients.

3. It also improves crop quality.

4. In turn mycorrhiza gets shelter.
