Table 5 Soil mycorrhizal inoculum potential (MIP) of pot-grown olive trees fertilized with sheep black wool (BW) residues, used at 4 different BW/soil percentages

From: Impact of sheep wool residues as soil amendments on olive beneficial symbionts and bacterial diversity

  Treatment MIP (%) Mycorrhizal colonization (%)
BW C 44.3 ± 5.8a* 83.3 ± 3.3a
0.5% 61.0 ± 8.5a 80.0 ± 5.8a
1.0% 67.9 ± 10.6a 76.7 ± 3.3a
2.0% 44.3 ± 6.6a 53.3 ± 3.3b
  1. *Values (means ± standard errors of three replicates per treatment) followed by the same letter in a column are not significantly different at P < 0.05 (Tukey’s post hoc test)
