Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to study the response of marigold (Tagetes erecta L.) to the inoculation of Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhizal (VAM) fungi at different P levels. In this experiment the VAM fungi viz., Glomus fasciculatum (Thaxter) Gerd. and Trappe, Glomus mossea (Nicol. and Gerd.) Gerd. and Trappe, Glomus intraradices Schenck and Smith with an un-inoculated control was maintained and three P levels viz., 60, 90, 120 kg ha-1 were tried. The results brought out that marigold responded well to VAM inoculation under field conditions. The plants inoculated with G. fasciculatum and given P at 90 kg/ ha recorded significantly highest total dry matter production in marigold (67.40, 123.02, 154.66 and 155.73 g, respectively) than other species of Glomus fungi and uninoculated control plants applied with P at 120 kg/ ha and least was observed in uninoculated control plants supplied with P at 60kg/ ha (44.97, 87.46, 105.53 and 105.73 g, respectively) at 30, 60, 90 and 120 DAT, respectively.
