The critical factor that determines the inoculum efficiency is the dosage and the time of inoculation. Although, theoretically, a single propagule of AM fungi is sufficient to initiate mycorrhization, the colonization process in such cases is very slow to be of agronomic interest. About 1–2 kg of soil inoculum (with 5,000–10,000 propagules) per m2 of seedbed could be an appropriate application rate.

Vermiculite is an inorganic carrier for AM inoculum production, as it is an ideal substrate for AM fungal sporulation (Barea et al. 1993). Sheared-root inocula (Sylvia and Jarstfer 1992), prepared from aeroponic cultures (Hung and Sylvia 1988; Jarstfer and Sylvia 1999), are also routinely used in inoculation programmes. Surface-disinfected AM fungal propagules can also be used especially under in vitro conditions. Two methods of off-farm inoculum production (open pot culture and root-organ culture) are detailed below.
