If a person was to isolate a fungus that would form a 
mycorhizzae relationship with an agronomic crop, would
innoculation of that fungus into the field (once it
became established) be an effective method for reducing
the need for commercial fertilization? Wouldn't the
"strength/abundance" of the fungi grow exponentially with 
the passing of years?
