Abstract:

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AM fungi) have been found associated with a wide variety of agricultural and horticultural crops, but in legumes it occurs widely. AM fungi are cosmopolitan and ubiquitous in nature under different ecosystems. Different Mungbean growing areas of the Punjab were surveyed to observe the AM fungus colonization with Mungbean and spore population in rhizosphere soil of the crop. The samples from Ferozepur district showed maximum colonization of 80 per cent followed by 78 and 76 per cent colonization of the samples collected from Faridkot and Tarn-Taran districts during spring 2017, respectively. Similarly, in kharif 2017, maximum mycorrhizal colonization was 78 per cent in samples collected from Ferozepur district followed by 77, 69, 60 and 58 per cent colonization in the samples of Faridkot, Moga, Ludhiana and Patiala districts, respectively. Similar trend has been observed in spore population in different districts of Punjab during spring and kharif season. It has been observed that the variance in root colonization and spores population of AM Fungi mainly is due to the different types of soils in different regions of Punjab.
