Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Status of Vetiveriazizanioides (L) Nash of Family Poaceae
R. M. Mulani  | S. B. Wankhede
Abstract: Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi play an important role in mobilization of nutrients and enhancing plant growth. It maintain the intimate link between the plant roots and soil the present investigation deals with Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi status of Vetiveria zizanioides (L) Nash of family Poaceae with main emphasis on percent root Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi colonization. Development of mycelia growth in the root tissue and the density and diversity of Arbuscular mycorrhizal spores in the rhizospheric soil of the plant. The roots and rhizospheric soil was collected from the botanical garden of Swami Ramanand Teerth Marawada University Nanded and were analysed. The roots showed 90 % Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi colonization with extensive mycelial growth in the cortical tissue. The coenocytic hyphae was observed in cortical tissue mainly and even in vascular tissue. The vesicles were mainly oval, round and elongated. The soil analysis show presence of 240 resting spores in 100 gm of soil and there is so much species diversity dominating mainly by Glomus, and important species are Glomus mosseae, Glomus microcarpum, Glomus pachycaulis.
