Abstract:

A field experiment was laid with Flemingia semialata Roxb. in the nursery of Department of Forestry, Mizoram University consisting of 17 treatments in CRD having 3 replications to study the effect of Rhizobium, endomycorrhizae and inorganic fertilizers under various combinations on plant growth, root development and nodulation. T15 recorded the highest values for parameters rooting length (17.8 cm), angle between primary and secondary roots (680), length of primary roots (15.7 cm) and leaf length (17.5 cm), T14 recorded the highest values for plant height (15.8 cm), collar diameter (3.8 mm), number of root nodules per plant (18), nodule biomass (0.15 gm), root spread (7.5 cm), shoot spread (18.8 cm), angle of branch emergence (830), number of branches (8) and branch length (6.9 cm), T11 recorded highest for number of leaves per plant (21), T6 recorded highest angle between secondary and tertiary roots (690) and length of tertiary roots (4.1 cm), T10 recorded highest number of rootlets (82) and T17 for maximum length of secondary roots (6.8 cm). Rhizobium contributes for good length of tertiary roots whereas endomycorrhizae for maximum number of rootlets which may be considered while introducing and managing Flemingia sermialata in various land use systems.
