Allelopathy and VA Mycorrhiza VI: Comparative Effectiveness of Glomus mosseae and G. fasciculatum in Improving Crop Growth and Yield in Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) under Allelopathic Stress

Rukhsana Bajwa, Bushra Afzal and Arshad Javaid    

Abstract: Under allelopathic stress of Imperata cylindrica two VAM species viz. Glomus mosseae and G. fasciculatum enhanced shoot growth of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) at 75 days growth stage. Response of shoot length to VAM was different with different VAM species. Maximum increase in shoot length was recorded in co-inoculated plants followed by G. fasciculatum and G. mosseae inoculation respectively. The response of shoot biomass was similar to both VAM species. Root fresh weight was reduced by VAM inoculation at this growth stage. Adverse effect was significant in G. mosseae and co-inoculated plants. However, root dry weight showed an insignificant response to either species of VAM. At 105 days growth stage response of root, shoot and spike growth to either VAM species was insignificant.
