Kirk, Anne; Fox, Dr. Stephen; Entz, Dr. Martin and Tenuta, Dr. Mario (2008) Preliminary Findings on the Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Colonization of Organic Wheat.

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi aid many crop plants in the uptake of phosphorus, which is one of the most limiting nutrients in organic crop production. Genotypic variation for mycorrhizal colonization exists in wheat cultivars. Mycorrhizal colonization and yield were studied in 5 modern wheat cultivars and 5 older wheat cultivars to investigate if differences in colonization exist between the cultivars. Cultivars that may be better suited for organic production are identified.
