Results of mycorrhization at this farm are incredibly satisfactory

Owner (Mr. Ciepłucha) on the background of mycorrhized young highbush blueberry plants (it is worth to note that effectivness of mycorrrhization is seen as uniform colour of all plants).

Control plants without artificial mycorrhization – please note not uniform colour of leaves.
