I edit various articles on Wikipedia, including recently a farm article. 
Wikipedia says that Rapeseed (a feed material for biofuel) needs generous
amounts of nitrogen fertilizer.  My question is, is it possible to engineer
Rapeseed so that it favors Mycorrhiza and thus generates its own nitrogen?  It
would then make an excellent rotation crop with grains.
