Abstract: Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (VAM) is suitable to increase the potential of dry land and crop production. This study aims to determine the types of VMA in the rhizosphere of maize plants in the village of Lekopacing, Tanralili district and as an initial stage in the utilization of VAM as a biological fertilizer. The method used is descriptive-exploratory method by taking soil samples at random in the maize rhizosphere. Soil samples obtained were filtered using wet screening techniques. Identification carried out up to genus level and performed based on morphological characteristics including shape, color and ornament. From these results it can be concluded that the highest population of VAM spores in the maize rhizosphere in the Lekopacing village, Tanralili district of the Maros regency was 89 VAM / 100 g soil. Three mycorrhizal genus were found, namely Glomus, Gigaspora and Acaulospora. Glomus genus was found more than the genus Gigaspora and Acaulospora.
