Pradhnya Khapekar | P. B. Nandkar
Abstract: The rhizosphere is the zone surrounding the roots of plants in which complex relations exist among the plant, soil microorganisms and the soil itself. Arbuscular mycorrhizal associations are integral, functioning parts of plants roots and are widely recognized as enhancing plant growth. Isolation of the indigenous and presumably adapted VAM fungi can be a potential biotechnological tool for inoculation of plants for successful restoration of degraded ecosystem. The study evaluated the response of Cajanas cajan to Glomus fasciculatum, Nostoc paludosum of different strains and chemical fertilizers. The result demonstrate the significantly increase in the plant biomass, % of root colonization, no. of vesicles, no. of spores in the dual inoculation of comparison to single inoculation.
Keywords: Cajanas cajan, Glomus fasciculatum, Nostoc paludosum, Arbuscular mycorrhiza
