Reduced diversity of AM fungi in annually cropped fields of the Canadian prairie
The arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi are important service providers to agriculture that are impacted by certain cultural practices. We assessed the status of AM fungal resources in the Prairie, from the Grey to the Brown ...
Large scale validation of an am fungal-based biofertilizer and its management with rhizobium for bean production, in central and western cuba
Forty workshops were given to teach farmers how to improve fertilizer use efficiency in bean through the use of biofertilizers. Experiments were set up in 50 fields on commercial farms. Two treatments were applied in all ...
Association of chickpea root with soil fungi: a comparison of cultivars
Field crops influence soil microbiota, impacting the health status and productivity of cropping systems. We conducted a two year field experiment using thirteen genotypes of chickpea and applied deep amplicon pyrosequencing ...
Proliferation of mycorrhizal fungal species on organic matter improves nitrogen nutrition in Russian wild rye
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) facilitate plant growth by aiding nutrient movement to plants especially under low fertility conditions. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi generally takes N as NH4+ or NO3-. We hypothesized ...
Depth differential colonization and biodiversity of mycorrhizal fungi in four prairie grass species
The biodiversity of AMF at different soil depths was studied in pure stands of the grasses crested wheatgrass (Agropyron cristatum (L.) Gaertn.), switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.), green needlegrass (Nassella viridula ...
Estimating the AM fungal resources of wheat fields
The arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi are a taxonomic group of microscopic soil dwellers generally promoting the growth of most plant species, including wheat, by mobilizing soil minerals, in particular soil P. Despite ...
