Can arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi be harnessed to enhance P nutrition and grain yield in rotations?

Plain text source: 
The proposed work capitalises on new knowledge demonstrating the highly significant role played by beneficial symbiotic arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi in supplying P to cereals... The new findings show that there is a switch from direct root uptake to AM fungal uptake in AM cereals and that the fungal symbionts have the potential to make a major contribution to the biological capacity of soils to deliver P to the crop plants and contribute to P cycling... Grain growers, advisers and researchers are invited to attend a free national symposium in May to learn about the latest soil biology research...
