Response of Oat (Avena sativa) to Inoculation with Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhizae (VAM) in the Presence of Phosphorus

Irshad Ahmad Khan, Shahbaz Ahmad and Najma Ayub

Abstract:
A pot experiment was conducted with sterilized soil to study the effect of P2O5 and mycorrhizal fungus on growth of Avena sativa. Single inoculation with Gigaspora rosea had no significant effect on plant growth over the corresponding controls while with dual inoculation the increase was significantly higher, both in the presence or absence of phosphorus. The maximum shoot dry weight with dual inoculation (Glomus etunicatum + Glomus intraradices) was 38.45 g at 0 kg P2O5 ha-1 and 45.22 g at 25 kg P2O ha-1, while root dry weight was 19.13 g at 0 kg P2O5 ha-1 and 22.50 g at 25 kg P2O5 ha-1.
