Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) symbiosis facilitates plant mineral nutrient acquisition and plays key roles in plant adaptation to environmental stresses. The application of AM fungi is a component of sustainable agriculture and ecological restoration. We introduced the current status of AM fungi collections, production of commercial inocula and AM fungi related patents, summarized the research advances in inoculum production, inoculation techniques, and factors influencing the success of inoculation practice in the field, based on case studies of mycorrhizal technology in agriculture, horticulture, and ecological restoration. Finally, we proposed some basic scientific questions and technical bottleneck that deserve futher studies, to promote the development and application of mycorrhizal technologies.
