INFLUENCE ON MYCORRIHIZAL INFECTION INCIDENCE OF BLUEBERRY IN DIFFERENT ORGANIC MATERIALS
The effect of soil amendments (moss, peat, sawdust, sand, stillage and elemental sulfur) incorporation on mycorrihizal infection incidence and growth of two blueberry cultivars Bluecrop and Northland were studied in a pot and field experiment. Treatments had a significant effect on mycorrihizal infection. In the pot experiment, mycorrihizal infection was highest in the added 1 kg sulfur (S) treatment and lowest in the sand treatment. Plant growth quantity was greatest in added moss and peat treatment with plant height and top dry weight, respectively, 132 and 121% more than the control (1 kg sulfur treatment). In the field experiment, mycorrihizal infection of Northland with added moss was highest and adding sawdust or moss and peat increased 206 and 165% to the control.
