Abstract:

The role of AM (Arbuscular mycorrhizal) fungi in the rhizosphere of onion at induced salt stress was studied. A pot culture experiment was set up with three levels of salts and six treatments involving mycorrhizal inoculations with host crop as onion. The initial observations of the soil physico-chemical analysis on comparison with postharvest soil revealed that there was significant difference in nutrient availability as well as uptake by the plants. The percentage increase in nutrient contents over control was observed to be the highest in treatments with Glomus intraradices and Scutellospora calospora. Interestingly the native isolate from Trichy sodic soil was found to be on par with the standard isolates which made the study to render a valuable finding and the reasons are also discussed.
