Just looking for clarification. Smiling

The article mentions "high phosphorus inhibits the formation of mycorrhizae".
However, I thought mycorrhizae played a major role in phosphorus/phosphate cycling, and made it more readily available for plants to utilize? Therefore, I'd assume having more available phosphorus could be beneficial?

Is there a sort of benchmark where the phosphorus level is too high that it instead becomes detrimental to the fungus? One of those "too much of a good thing" situations?
