The Potential of Commercial Mycorrhizal Inoculant to Reduce Drought Stress in Intercropping

Our research examined the potential of combining mycorrhizal inoculants and intercropping in a greenhouse study. Using mock intercropping environments of Zea mays (corn) and Glycine max (soybean), along with individual plants, sterilized soil, and inoculated soil, using a commercially available mycorrhizal inoculation mix were compared in well-watered and drought conditions.
