Effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, different levels of phosphorus and drought stress on water use efficiency, relative water content and proline accumulation rate of Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.).

An experiment was carried out using a split factorial based randomized complete block design with 4 replications to study the effects of AMF, phosphorus and drought stress on some characteristics of Coriander. The factors studied included application and non-application of mycorrhiza (Glomus hoi) 0.35 and 70 kg ha-1 phosphorus applications, and two levels of drought stress irrigation. The results showed that...
