Mycorrhizal inoculation stimulates growth, photosynthesis and nutrient uptake in a wide range of host plants. However, the ultimate effects of arbuscular mycorrhyzal (AM) symbiosis vary with the plants and fungal species involved in the association. Therefore, identification of the appropriate combinations of AM fungi (AMF) that interact synergistically to improve their benefits is of high significance. Here, three AM fungal compositions namely VT (Claroideoglomus sp., Funneliformis sp… Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi for vegetable (VT) enhance resistance to Rhizoctonia solani in watermelon by alleviating oxidative stress
TLDR
It is suggested that VT at optimal dose could enhance watermelon resistance to R.solani and thus can be considered as a biological control agent for R. solani management in cucurbits. Expand

TLDR
It is found that repetitively adding AM inocula with organic substrates (GS) improved the cucumber growth and physiology and the AM-organic substrate association might be a pragmatic option for use as an economic and efficient biological resource and as a newly-sustainable plant microbe mediator to enhance the regional ecosystem services and plant productivity of the anthropogenic PGVC of this region.

Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Changes the Impact of Potato Virus Y on Growth and Stress Tolerance of Solanum tuberosum L. in vitro
TLDR
The effect of joint PVY infection and mycorrhizal colonization by Rhizophagus irregularis on growth traits of the host potato plant (cv. Pirol) was investigated and AMF alleviated oxidative stress in PVY-infected host plants, but still caused asymptomatic growth depression. Expand
Inoculation of drought-stressed wheat plant (Triticum aestivum L.) with single and combined inoculants of Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi
TLDR
Findings indicate that inoculation with AMF belonging to different families was more effective in improving plant growth than AMF from the same genus and with mono-inoculation, and SN; which are combination from different genera have better effect on wheat plant growth. Expand
Effect of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi on Pratylenchus penetrans Infestation in Apple Seedlings under Greenhouse Conditions
TLDR
Indigenous AMF could colonize the roots of apple seedlings the most efficiently, resulting in a higher biocontrol effect and a synergistic effect was observed when two AMF strains were applied together leading to a significant growth response of the seedlings. Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) species and abundance exhibit different effects on saline-alkaline tolerance in Leymus chinensis
TLDR
Evaluating the mechanisms of five AMF species, single or mixture, on Leymus chinensis stress tolerance along a saline-alkaline gradient showed that AMF enhanced plant stress tolerance by promoting plant growth, enhancing nutrient absorption, maintaining ion balance, and improving photosynthesis efficiency. Expand
The effects of field inoculation of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi through rye donor plants on grapevine performance and soil properties
TLDR
Overall, the work herein demonstrates that the introduction of F. mosseae through donor plants is a suitable field inoculation method for grapevines and can help them to better withstand heat waves. Expand
Inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi improves melon (Cucumis melo) fruit quality under field conditions and plant performance in both field and greenhouse
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on the quality of plant products and fruits and to establish a phytochemical cocktail for this purpose. Expand
Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (Glomus mosseae) Improves Growth, Photosynthesis and Protects Photosystem II in Leaves of Lolium perenne L. in Cadmium Contaminated Soil
TLDR
The results showed that inoculation with G. mosseae can improve the capacity of Cd tolerance of L. perenne leaves in Cd contaminated soil and increase the non-stomatal factors including the tolerance of its photosynthetic apparatus to Cd, to improve photoynthetic capacity. Expand
Mycorrhizal frequency, physiological parameters, and yield of strawberry plants inoculated with endomycorrhizal fungi and rhizosphere bacteria
TLDR
The influence of the species of rhizosphere bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi used in the experiment on the physiological traits of strawberries contributed, especially in the second year of the study, to increase the yield and mean weight of strawberry fruit. Expand

Are there benefits of simultaneous root colonization by different arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi?
TLDR
Direct evidence is provided for functional complementarity among species within the AMF community colonizing a single root system and competition among the species poses a major challenge in interpreting experiments with mixed inoculations by use of real-time PCR. Expand
Indirect interactions between arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and Spodoptera exigua alter photosynthesis and plant endogenous hormones
Peanut (Arachis hypogaea Linn. cv: Luhua 11) and tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cv: Zhongshu 4) were inoculated with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) Funneliformis mosseae BEG167 (Fm),Expand
Response of soybean cultivars toward inoculation with three arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and Bradyrhizobium japonicum in the alluvial soil
TLDR
Assessment of the comparative efficacy of three arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi combined with cultivar specific Bradyrhizobium japonicum in soybean under greenhouse conditions revealed that amongst the single inoculations of three AMF, G. intraradices produced the largest increases in the parameters studied followed by A. tuberculata and G. gigantea indicating that plant acted selectively on AMF symbiosis.

Effects of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi on Growth and Yield of Cucumber Plants
TLDR
The results indicated that growth of seedlings was significantly enhanced by G. mosseae, inhibited by Glomus versiforme, and not significantly influenced byG. Expand
Screening mycorrhiza species for plant growth, P and Zn uptake in pepper seedling grown under greenhouse conditions
TLDR
The results indicate that AM species can be used to compensate for Zn and P deficiency under P and Zn deficient soils for pepper plants. Expand

TLDR
The effects of AMF on the growth, gas exchange, chlorophyll (Chl) fluorescence, carbon content, and calorific value of black locust seedlings in the greenhouse are investigated. Expand
Improvement of copper stress tolerance in pepper plants (Capsicum annuum L.) by inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi
TLDR
Pre-inoculation in transplants could be an adequate practice to alleviate the deleterious effects in stress of pepper plants as different AMF species can differ in their ability to minimize stress effects and promote plant growth. Expand
