AbstractResearches the effects of fertilizer and ericoid mycorrhizal fungi (EMF) on the growth of potted Vaccinium corymbosum (highbush blueberry) cultivars. Root colonization was typically higher when plants were grown with EMF and organic fertilizer. Different responses by cultivar to the three different types of inocolum may indicate a fungus-host specificity.
