Increased nutrient availability in soil or substrate
Increased produce quality
Increased phosphorous P use efficiency
Mycor Nursery/Media Mix treated Maize, cv. Viking, grown in a greenhouse with low soil phosphorous concentration in the substrate had on average 18.2 % less mycorrhizal colonization, 4.7 % more shoot dry weight, 338.2 % more extractable soil phosphorous and a 60.6 % higher foliar P content compared to the untreated control. The plants died when the highest dose was applied. All parameter increased in a dose-dependend manner, with the exception of the mycorrhizal colonization which was highest at the lowest dose.
