We all know that Plants are sessile organisms they cannot go and talk like us, but plants continuously interact with each other and share their environment by different ways of communication. One of the important ways of interplant communication is belowground communication through Common Mycorrhizal Network, Plants are so kind they care and share each other, they use Common Mycorrhizal Network for sharing the nutrients and defence signals. Few intelligent plants hijack CMN to transfer allelochemicals. Plants are so generous they reward the fungi with carbohydrates and help for its survival. This interplant signal transfer and response is efficiently helpful in many plants to combat herbivore/abiotic stress. This interplant communication can be effectively used in agriculture to get higher productivity.
