Abstract

The objective of this research was to evaluate vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) fungi for their ability to provide P to crops across a range of soil P. To select effective VAM fungi, cuttings of sweet potato were inoculated with nine isolates of fungi and were grown in soil with no P addition. Plants were evaluated after 3, 7, and 11 wk. To determine the range of soil P where these crops respond to VAM fungi, experiments were conducted with sweet potato and Napiergrass, using at least two VAM fungi and five P additions. -from Authors
