Induction of defense responses in common bean plants by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.
Improving growth, flower yield, and water relations of snapdragon (Antirhinum majus L.) plants grown under well-watered and water-stress conditions using arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi
It is confirmed that AM colonization can mitigate the deleterious effect of water stress on growth and flower yield of the snapdragon ornamental plant.
Trichoderma harzianum: a biocontrol agent against Bipolaris oryzae
Under field conditions, spraying of a spore suspension of T. harzianum at 108 spore ml−1 significantly reduced the disease severity (DS) and disease incidence (DI) on the plant leaves, and also significantly increased the grain yield, total grain carbohydrate, and protein, and led to a significant increase in the total photosynthetic pigments in rice leaves.
Interactions between a vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (Glomus intraradices) and Streptomyces coelicolor and their effects on sorghum plants grown in soil amended with chitin of brawn scales
Analysis of the content of total amino acids and ammonia in leaves on the basis of dry matter production showed that, in most instances, total amino amino acids of mycorrhizal plants were significantly higher than those of non-inoculated plants.
Application of Mycorrhizal Technology for Improving Yield Production of Common Bean Plants
Investigation of the effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi with different levels of NPK fertilizers on yield production of common bean plants revealed that inoculation with AMF and the concentrations 50% and 75% ofNPK with AMf are the greater than other concentrations and non-mycorrhIZal plants.

Under field conditions, spraying of benzoic acid at 20 mM led to a significant reduction in disease severity (DS) and disease incidence (DI) on the plant leaves, in addition to asignificant increase in the grain yield and its components.

Fungal alkaline phosphatase staining and, to a lesser extent, succinate dehydrogenase activity showed a relationship between the activity of these enzyme and mycorrhizal growth responses, and VA-mycorrhiza inoculation significantly increased the number and dry matter yield of pods compared to non-my Corollary plants.
Bioconversion of poultry wastes. I--Factors influencing the assay and productivity of crude uricase by three uricolytic filamentous fungi.
Uric acid was found to be the best nitrogen source for production and activity of uricase by the three tested fungi and the addition of some vitamins to the culture media increased the maximum biomass yield of all the isolates, although no significantly increased uric enzyme production was found.
