 Howdy,  This season I tested Mycorhizza in my Tomato patch.  Planted 50
varieties and applied Mycorhizza per instructions to random plants (treated 75
plants).  Have about 250 plants in garden, used compost with a little manure
over entire garden, didn't use Triple 14 Osmocote like I generally do for fear
it would be detrimental to Mycorhizza treated plants.  To date, all plants are
smaller than normal for this time of year, expect that is due to abnormal
weather conditions.  Mycorhizza treated plants show no differences in size or
number of fruit set.  The season has a long way to go, will be anxious to see if
treated plants have a better over-all yield.  Per claims for rapid growth,
increased yields, etc. etc.-havn't seen it yet.  Doubt if I will ever buy or use
this product again.  Good luck, Tom, North-Eastern CA
