Nutrient Uptake and Distribution in a Mature 'Pinot noir' Vineyard

Report on a study undertaken to investigate nutrient uptake and distribution of mature Vitis vinifera L. 'Pinot noir' vines (23 to 24 years old) grown without irrigation in a region with low summer rainfall common to western Oregon vineyards.

Put Mycorrhizae to use

A discussion about mycorrhizae, a natural fungi that can greatly improve plants' nutrient and water uptake. The authors specifically discuss why mycorrhizae are important, whether or not they are needed, necessary materials, and when and how to use mycorrhizae.

Phosphorus Supply Alters Tuber Composition, Flower Production, and Mycorrhizal Responsiveness of Container-Grown Hybrid Zandtedeschia

The purpose of this study was to determine if arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) inoculation influences plant development, reproduction (vegetative and floral), and/ or tuber quality in calla lily (Zantedeschia spp. and hybrids).

Changes in Polyamine Content and Localization of Pinus sylvestris ADC and Suillus variegatus ODC mRNA transcripts During the Formation of Mycorrhizal Interaction in an In Vitro Cultivation System

Research report detailing a study conducted on the involvement of polyamines (PAs) in the interaction between Pinus sylvestris L. seedlings and an ectomycorrhizal fungus Suillus variegatus (Swatz: Fr.) O. Kunze in an in vitro cultivation system.

Methods of Nitrogen Application in Summer Affects Plant Growth and Nitrogen Uptake in Autumn in Young Fuji/M.26 Apple Trees

The intent of this study was to determine the (1) effect of soil versus foliar nitrogen (N) applications during the summer on tree growth, and (2) effect of soil versus foliar N applications during summer on N uptake in the autumn in young apple trees.

Inoculation with Ericoid Mycorrhizal Fungi Alters Fertilizer Use of Highbush Blueberry Cultivars

This study investigates the potential role EMF plays in container-grown blueberry production. Specifically, it was determined whether growth and nutrition of highbush blueberry is influenced by inoculation with various EMF isolates, and whether the response to EMF is altered by the type of fertilizer used.

Isolate-specific Rooting Responses of Leucothoe fontanesiana Cuttings to Inoculation with Ericoid Mycorrhizal Fungi

Nursery Crops
The intent of the study was to determine whether an EMF inoculum, added to the rooting substrate during cutting propagation, can alter root production by L. fontanesiana, and whether responses to inoculation depend on the EMF isolate used as inoculum.

Frequency and Intensity of Root Colonization by Ericoid Mycorrhizal Fungi in Nursery Production of Blueberry Plants

Nursery Crops
A report on a survey conducted on commercial nursery plants produced from tissue culture and cuttings to determine when or if ericoid mycorrhizal fungi (EMF) colonize blueberry plants under nursery cultural methods.

Inoculation with Ericoid Mycorrhizal Fungi Alter Root Colonization and Growth in Nursery Production of Blueberry Plants from Tissue Culture and Cuttings

The objectives of this work were to determine whether inoculation of blueberry nursery plant with EMF influences rooting, subsequent plant growth, or mycorrhizal colonization of blueberry plants produced from tissue culture and cuttings.

Cultural Variation and Mycorrhizal Status of Blueberry Plants in NW Oregon Commercial Production Fields

Nursery Crops
The design of the study conducted was to assess the mycorrhizal status of blueberry plants in commercial farms in the Willamette Valley of Oregon and to determine whether relationships exist between cultural practices, root distribution, soil characteristics and level of colonization by mycorrhizal fungi.
