EFFECT OF VA MYCORRHIZAL ASSOCIATION ON THE GROWTH AND RATE OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC PRODUCTS IN LEGUMINOUS PLANTS UNDER HEAVY METAL STRESS

K.K. Anilkumar and G. Muraleedharakurup

Abstract

The aim of this work was to study the effect of mycorrhizal infection on growth rate, chlorophyll content and photosynthetic products of leguminous plants grown under heavy metal stress. It could be concluded that VAM association could effectively protect the plants from heavy metal stress. The results obtained indicate that in industrial areas where heavy metals are discharged in to the environment, VAM association can enhance the survival and proper growth of the host plant.
