The book provides an insight into the usage of mycorrhizal technology in different fruit crops in the world, its benefits in nutrient cycling/management and in biotic and abiotic stress management and the prospects of its application in nurseries and field crop. It provides information on how in horticulture practices it is important to select a functionally compatible host/fungus/substrate combination for the fruit crop-AMF symbiosis to be successful, and how an early establishment of the AMF status, after sowing or transplanting is a key factor to improve plant performance.
