Nice article. I think it's important to keep providing other types of evidence in these areas because the results are pretty new. We can also start to understand and apply the information in new ways. I have read that it is important to not put too much phosphorus in your yard because then it's hard for the myorrhizae to do their job.

I used a combination of double-dig, close-spacing my plants (I'm sure there's a technical term) and mycorrhizal infused soil (and of course lots of compost.

In the middle of a CO drought, my garden (planted about a month later than it should have been) was thriving. Plants were about twice as large and much happier looking than my neighbors. Fungi may not have been the only reason, but I'd guess it played a good part.
