Investigation of vesicular – arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) on yield quantity and quality of sorghum cultivars under irrigation in arid area


Vesicular – arbuscular mycorrhiza (VAM)are beneficial microorganisms used in various industrial practices, such as mining, agriculture, and environmental rehabilitation. In the current experiments we studied the effects of different mycorrhizal fungi symbiosis with sorghum genotypes in the dryland area, Zabol , Iran. The results showed that there is significant differences between cultivar of sorghum and mycorrhiza on plant height, number of seed per spike, biomass, root colonization, plant growth and crop yield. Glomus etunicatum species were best mycorrhiza strain used in this research.
