Abstract

Investigates the effects of adding an inoculum containing natural ericoid roots and soil to conatiner-grown Leucothoe axillaris. Adding the inoculum allowed for decreasing the fertilizer rate by 50% and the irrigation rate by 67% without affecting production. Reducing fertilizer and irrigation resulted in decreased nutrient runoff considerably.
