Abstract

This trial shows that mycorrhizal fungi helps peach seedlings extract zinc from the soil. The fungi were equally or more effective in overcoming soil-fumigation nutrient-deficiency effects in peach nursery seedlings than the standard nursery practice of side-dressing phosphorus and zinc at planting time. Further studies are under way to determine application and placement methods which show the greatest inoculation efficiency in peach and other plant species.
