Tom, I'm just a beginner, but could it be that because you've worked the
soil with manure and all that good organic materials over the years, that
your soil already is loaded with Mycorhizza?  Maybe that is why you see no
difference...all your plants are already inoculated.  Just a thought....

Howdy, My soil is pretty well balanced, been a garden here in same spot
the late 1930s, my Dad was quite a gardener, and each year added a lot of
manure, grass clippings, leaf material, etc. etc.  I did not add any sand.
Don't feel comfortable discussing the vendor that sold me the Mycorrhiza,
the season has a long way to go, and the weather has been really bad.
got frosted the 8th of June)  I'll keep records as to dates of first fruit,
total weight produced, by the plants in my test group and the plants in the
control group.  My sample size is so small, that I am reluctant to take the
results too serious.  If you have any questions, I'd be happy to reply off
list.  Good luck, Tom   North-Eastern CA
