SURVEY OF ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZAL FUNGI-ASSOCIATED WITH SUGARCANE IN OF SOUTH INDIA
of South India was recorded. Observation on physico-chemical properties of rhizosphere soils,
arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungal spore count and root colonization were recorded. AM spores
isolated were of Acaulospora scrobiculata,Gigaspora margarita, Glomus aggregatum, G. deserticola,
G. fasciculatum, G.geosporum, G. mosseae, Sclerocystis pachycaulis, S. pakistanica, S. sinuosa
and Scutellospora heterogama. The mycorrhizal spore density was maximum at Mariayammankovil
and minimum at Papanasam. Root colonization percentage range between 34 and 84%. Glomus
mosseae was confined to acidic soils only. The mycorrhizal fungi Glomus aggregatum, G.
deserticola, G. fasciculatum and Gigaspora margarita were encounted in all the four study sites.
