Abstract

Avocados inoculated with beneficial mycorrhizal fungi have up to a 250 percent greater growth rate than non-mllcorrhizal avocados in sterilized soil Mycorrhizal avocados resist transplant shock because of better water absorption.Avocados inoculated with beneficial mycorrhizal fungi were shown to have up to a 250 percent greater growth rate than non-mycorrhizal avocados in sterilized soil. Transplant shock in avocado seedlings may be reduced by mycorrhizal fungi.
