Summary

Mycorrhiza is an ecosystem service which can be relied on and favoured, but also impaired or irreversibly lost depending on the production system. Arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) deserves to be considered in development of sustainable farming systems as well as in breeding and soil quality assessment programmes serving sustainable agriculture. AM effectiveness in field soils can be assessed using a standardized bioassay.
