Lawns surely don't benefit from N-fixing rhizobia, unless you are growing legumes in your lawns (which most people call weeds).

I've provided info about soil microbiology of lawns. You've provided info about nursery crops and legumes -- none of which make up my lawns!
You first said there was no proof Mycrorizia worked in the field. I gave proof right? People have trees in their lawn right? There is a trial showing Mycorrizia do work in field trials. Lets get that one point straight first.

Then I will move forward with the turf aspects.
