Abstract

Aim: The present study aimed to investigate the effects of two dominant arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi along with Trichoderma viride and Pseudomonas fluorescens on the growth and vase life of Chrysanthemum indicum ('Garden Mum'- Kathleen Dark Red).  

 

Methodology: An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of G. mosseae (G) and A. laevis (A) along with T. viride (T) and Pseudomonas fluorescens (P) on the growth and vase life of C. indicum L. under polyhouse conditions. The experiment was laid in a randomized block design with five replicates.

 

Results: AM fungi along with other bioinoculants showed maximum root colonization leading to increased water absorption and various important nutrients, especially phosphorous, thereby enhancing the growth and different biochemical attributes. For the vase life experiment, bioinoculants treated plants showed better result with minimum peroxidase activity, thereby delaying flower senescence.

 

Interpretation: AMF inoculation should be recommended at nursery level as biofertilizers are cost effective and also a substitute for chemical fertilizers.

 

Key words: Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, Growth parameters, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Vase life
