Abstract/Contents:Discusses the possibility for mycorrhizae to replace phosphorus fertilization, explaining that "mycorrhizae are a group of fungi that infect plant roots without causing disease," adding that "a number of studies show mycorrhizae can enhance drought stress and/or recovery and extract nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus from soil for their host plants." Details other benefits that may result from the use of mycorrhizae by illustrating through information acquired from the experience of various turf managers. Overviews a study conducted on the efficiency of mycorrhizae in comparison to phosphorus fertilization at the O.J. Noer Turfgrass Research and Educational Facility in Madison, Wisonsin.
