I have maintained all along that commercial preparations are not the best way to go. I wouldn't add a mix of broadly adapted mycorhyzzae unles I was in the bare subsoil of a new development. Even then I would probably innoculate my trees with those that produce edible fungi.

If anyone wants to see evidence of the inefficacy of mychorizzal amendments- here's the latest where 8 different products were shown to have no affect on accelerating establishment of mych. relationships. Sorry I was unable to download study, but you can probably find it. It was mentioned in this months Hortideas.
