Abstract:

The influence of soil moisture on the infection, hyphal development and uptake of P of a VA mycorrhizal fungus Glomus fasciculatum in Quinoa was studied at four different moisture levels (-0.2; -0.6; -1.2 and -2.4 MPa). Maximum increase in dry weight was observed at -0.2 MPa level. There was a proportionate increase in total P content in shoot and root of a plant at decreased moisture levels. However, total N content increased only in roots, but not the shoots. The inflection, spore number and hyphal density were highest at low moisture level (-2.4 MPa) because of ramifying external mycelium in the soil.
