Increased nutrient availability in soil or substrate
Increased produce quality
Increased phosphorous P use efficiency
Mycor Max treated Maize, cv. Viking, grown in a greenhouse with low soil phosphorous concentration in the substrate had 38.2 % less mycorrhizal colonization, 36.6 % more shoot dry weight, 148.9 % more extractable soil phosphorous and a 12.7 % higher foliar P content compared to the untreated control. All parameters increased in a dose-dependent manner, with the exception for the mycorrhizal colonization which was highest at the second and fourth dose.
