USE OF MYCORRI-11ZAE FOR MINED LAND RE VEGETATIONKUMAR NIKHIL
Mining wastes initially lack viable mycorrhizal fungal population, and thus the establishment of a vegetative community is delayed. Mycorrhizae inoculation can enhance the productivity of mine sites if mycorrhizae are absent, available soil phosphorus is low and the plant species used in revegetation respond to mycorrhizal infection. Mycorrhizal inoculation of mine waste may be critical for the establishment of a \ziable, diverse and sustaining plant community. Pot experiments were conducted by taking overburden top material and soil infected by mycorrhizae of Glomus spp with the Albizia lebbeck grown up to six months for the growth studies. It was noted that the plant grown on overburden dump top material infected with mycorrhizae was found to increase over non-infected one. Further, it was noted that the infection on overburden dump top material has more productivity than the soil infected by mycorrhizae. This may be due to other micro-flora interference in the soil which resulted in the lesser growth.
