Enhanced Growth of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungus-inoculated Celery Seedlings Transplanted to a Field

Yoh-ichi Matsubara, Haruto Tamura and Takashi Harada

pp: 540-542

Celery (Apium graveolens L Cornell no. 619) seedlings inoculated with arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus [Glomus etunicatum Becker and Gerdemann (GE), Glomus intraradices Schenck and Smith (GI), and Gigaspora margarita Becker and Hall (GM)] were transplanted to a field in order to test the promotive effect of AM fungus infection on the growth of celery.

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus-inoculated plants growing in a greenhouse for 8 weeks were superior to non-inoculated plants in height, leaf (blade and petiole), and root dry weights in each fungus species. The AM fungus infection level of the root systems differed among AM fungus species (Table 1).
