Role of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (Glomus intraradices) – (fungus aided)in zinc nutrition of maize

A greenhouse experiment was conducted to assess the nutritional improvement of maize plants (variety COHM5) inoculated with and without arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus (Glomus intraradices Schenck and Smith) under varying levels of Zn concentration (0, 1.25, 2.5, 3.75 and 5.0 mg kg-1). Growth (leaf area index and root morphological attributes) and nutrient status (Zn and P concentrations) were measured...
