Using mycorrhiza inoculate or just those already in the soil AND high
phosphorus fertilizer either 'turns off' the fungi and causes them to go
dormant or it kills them.  You do not get a double effect.

Growing plants in ways that foster mycorrhizal growth have many other
benefits such as plant health, soil health and tilth.
