An attempt was made to analyze the correlation between physico-chemical factors of soil with distribution of AM fungi under temperate conditions in different apple orchards of Kashmir Himalaya. Ten villages from district Pulwama were selected for the present investigation because edaphic factors of the particular district show variable soil. The study revealed that all chemical factors viz. Organic carbon, Available nitrogen, Available Potassium and Available phosphorus are positively correlated with distribution of AM fungi.

Keywords: Chemical parameters, Correlation, AM fungi, Kashmir
