Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) is attracting global attention as organic fertilizers and alternatives to chemical fertilizers in crop management practices. Mycorrhizae technology application in Africa is still juvenile compared to other continents in small-to-large scale agriculture and commerce. The sustainable use of AMF technology in in resolving bioremediation, bio-restorations and conservation challenges is currently limited by the paucity of their inocula production. Their natural versatility encourages a research trajectory toward their cultivation and exploitation of their potential benefits in improving food, bioeconomic securities and product development. This review focuses on the natural dynamics and potentials of AMF beyond agriculture to biotechnologically oriented product development of industrial, environmental and food relevancies.
