ABSTRACT

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Cassia tora Linn. is well known weed found throughout Maharashtra. It a well known medicinal plant used in various skin disorders. Cassia tora L. is commonly known as ‘Takala’ in Marathi and tender leaves are used as vegetable in Konkan region. Investigation was carried out to study influence of VAM on vegetative and reproductive parameters after inoculation. After 90 days growth parameters like plant height, number of branches, number of flowers, number of fruits, dry leaf biomass, dry root biomass, mycorrhizal colonization, % VAM Colonization, was quantified. Plant with either a combination of mycorrhizal fungi and phosphorous grew taller and produced higher dry matter of root and leaf than treated with phosphorous alone or control plants. Number of branches increased when inoculated with mycorrhizal fungi and phosphorous. In the present study mycorrhizal fungi and phosphorous were found to be synergistic with percent of root colonization.

 

Key words- VAM, Cassia tora L., productivity.
