INTERACTION STUDIES ON PIGEON PEA AND BLACK GRAM PLANTS WITH AM FUNGI AND OTHER BENEFICIAL MICRO-ORGANISMS
Keywords:Glomus fasciculatum, Azospirillum, Bacillus polymyxa, Pigeon pea and Black gram
AM fungus, Azospirillum and Bacillus polymyxa inoculation on Pigeon pea and Black gram plants growth response in relation to plant height, dry weight of shoot, per cent colonization, spore number, ‘N’ and ‘P’ content of the shoot was studied in pot culture studies. The treatments consisted of inoculation with AM fungus (Glomus fasciculatum) only, dual inoculation with AM fungus and control under sterilized soil conditions. Seeds of Pigeon pea and Black gram plants were seeded in earthen pots containing different inoculua respectively. Data were counted at 45 and 90 th day after inoculation. Dual inoculation resulted in significant increase in height, mycorrhizal colonization than inoculation with AM fungus alone. The amount of ‘N’ and ‘P’ increased significantly with dual inoculation than with individual inoculations.
