An experiment was conducted in nursery condition of Department of Forestry, CCSHAU, Hisar. Pots were filled with different soils media containing field soil (FS), farm yard manure (FYM) and pond silt (PS) inoculated with two mycorrhizal fungi i.e. Glomus intraradices (G.I) and Acaulospora scrobiculata (A.S). Seeds of Ailanthus excelsa were sown in pots for studied the nutrient contents in soil (kg/ha), nutrient content in plants (%) and uptake by plants (g/plant). It was observed that nutrient contents in soils and uptake in plants were increased with increasing time period when both the mycorrhizal fungi were applied separately in potting media containing field soil and farm yard manure but show negative effect on nutrient contents in soil and uptake in plants when both these fungi were applied together.

Keywords: Acaulospora scrobiculata, Glomus intraradices, Ailanthus excelsa, Potting media
