Response of Pine Seedlings with Various Ectomycorrhizal Fungi in Organic Amended Soils
Abstract: Seedlings of Pinus kesiya were inoculated with mycorrhizal fungi namely C. rachata L. laccata, P. tinctorius and S. luteus grown in organic amended soils using pure culture techniques. Mycorrhizal infection was maximum in the seedlings inoculated with S. luteus in grass litter amended soil and minimum with seedlings inoculated with P. tinctorius. Similarly Production of mycorrhizae was higher by S. luteus fungus in grass litter soil than any other mycorrhizal fungi in organic amended soil. In general mycorrhizal fungi inoculated pine seedlings harboured higher nutrient concentration as well as shoot weight, root weight seedling volume and seedling biomass than uninoculated seedlings in different organic amended soils.
