Anethum graveolens L. called as dill or sowa is used as leaf vegetable and have any medicinal uses. it is widely used as carminative and appetizer. In Maharashtra it is called Shepu. Anethum is an important vegetable and medicinal plant for which it was selected in present research. Effect of VAM inoculation showed positive effect on vegetative growth parameters like plant height and no of leaves. Percentage of VAM colonization was higher in mycorrhizal plants with recommended phosphate in sterilized and non sterilized soil.


Keywords: Anethum, VAM, Vegetative growth.
