ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZAL ASSOCIATION OF SOME AGROFORESTRY TREE SPECIES IN TWO SOCIAL FORESTRY NURSERIES OF MAHABUBNAGAR DISTRICT (A.P.), INDIAPAVAN KUMAR PINDI
AM colonization of different Agroforestry tree species in two social forestry nurseries was investigated. Percentage of AM infection, number of resting spores and AM fungi species varies both with tree species as well as in two different nurseries. This variation attributed to various factors such as mycorrhizal status and other management practices. In both nurseries Glomus species dominated in all tree species followed by Sclerocystic, Gigaspora, Acaulospora, Scutellospora and Entrophospora. Interestingly, Azadirachta indica and Terminalia catappa have shown maximum and minimum infection respectively in both the nurseries.
