Abstract:

Salinity of soil is a serious problem affecting plant growth and is increasing steadily in many parts of the world, particularly in arid and semi-arid areas. Vesicular Arbuscular mycorrhiza (VAM) is the most wide spread and significant mutualistic fungi having universal in their association including plants of agricultural and horticulture importance. VAM fungi have been shown to promote plant growth flower yield and salinity tolerance by various mechanisms. The effects of inoculation with Entrophospora sp. have been investigated on chrysanthemum var. Marigold, an important flower crop grown with four different levels of saline irrigation water (1.15 (control), 2, 4 and 6 dS/m). Plant flower yield and quality parameters and tolerance of the plants to salinity were determined. The results indicated that the Entrophospora sp. fungi could infect and colonize the roots effectively under high salinity levels were significantly enhanced flowering and yield parameters in the inoculated plants. However no flowering was seen in uninoculated plants at higher salinity levels of 6 dS/m levels. VAM association significantly increased tolerance of plants to salinity and was found as an effective measure to enhance establishment of the plant and to decrease soil salinity.
