Abstract
Different isolates of VA mycorrhizal fungi were not equally effective in providing protection against the root pathogen P. cinnamomi. A natural mixed population of VA fungi markedly reduced root rot development in C. lawsoniana 'Ellwoodii', while Glomus mosseae alone only delayed onset of the disease. Good mycorrhizal establishment was important in obtaining these protective effects against the pathogen.
