This experiment is conducted as part of ICBA’s long-running research on organic and inorganic soil enhancers. The experiment aims to establish how mycorrhizal treatment affects date palm growth under marginal conditions. It is focused on:
- Evaluating the effect of mycorrhizal colonization on date palm trees’ survival, fruit initiation, and early growth;
- Assessing the effect of long-term use of low-quality irrigation water on soil properties with and without mycorrhizal treatment;
- Assessing the effect of mycorrhizal treatment on date palm fruit yield and quality.
