INFLUENCE OF BIOINOCULANTS ON THE GROWTH OF GLIRICIDIA MACULATA IN NURSERY CONDITIONSPAVAN KUMAR PINDI
Gliricidia is a small genus of trees and shrubs and native of tropical America. G. maculata is widely cultivated in the tropics as a shade and ornamental tree. Studies on influence of bioinoculants on growth of Gliricidia maculata tree species responded positively towards the different inoculations. However, the response varied with the type of bioinoculant. Dual inoculations of mycorrhizal fungi and Rhizobium have shown better results than the other types. Dual inoculation involving mycorrhizae and Azotobacter, Rhizobium and PSB performed better than single inoculations of mycorrhizae. A mixture of mycorrhizae appears to be better inoculum than the individual AM fungi. AM fungal species varied in their efficiency in supporting the seedling growth. They further suggested that mixed inoculum might be used more efficiently than single inoculum for field inoculations.
