Abstract

Total fresh weight and crown spread of Juniperus chinensis var. sargentii Henry plants, grown in microplots containing a low fertility medium of 4 soil:l sand:l milled pine bark and amended with 10N-4.4P-8.3K fertilizer at rates of 0, 110, or 220 μg/g, were significantly increased by inoculation with a spore mixture of 3 different vesicular-arbuscular (VA) mycorrhizal fungi. Higher fertilizer concentrations improved crown spread but did not affect plant growth. Root colonization by the endophytes ranged from 24.4 to 39.2% and was unaffected by fertilization rates.
