  journal={Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences},
The aim of present study was to evaluate the impact of tillage practices and crop sequences on AM fungal propagules, infectivity potential and soil enzyme activities in the soybean rhizosphere of a long-term field trial maintained since 2001. Rhizosphere soil and root samples of soybean were drawn in kharif 2008 from three tillage systems (conventionalconventional (C-C), conventional-reduced (C-R) and reduced-reduced (R-R) and four soybean-based crop rotations (soybean–wheat (S–W), soybean… 

Nitrogen and weed management effect on soil microbial properties in rice-based cropping system under conservation agriculture

A study was carried out to evaluate the influence of tillage-residue management, N-levels and weed management on the population of bacteria, fungi and actinobacteria in soil under

Tillage and Weed Management Effect on Weeds, Non Target Toxicity in Soil and Yield of Soybean

Populations of fungi, bacteria and actinomycetes, and soil dehydrogenase activity (DH) and microbial biomass carbon (MBC) were significantly higher in no-tillage treatment in both years and weed-free check was superior to all other weed control treatments in this regard.

Growth and productivity of soybean as influenced by planting methods, biofertilizers and nitrogen levels

It can be concluded that soybean can be sown successfully with Happy Seeder without any preparatory tillage after the combine harvesting of wheat along with recommended biofertilizer inoculation and 100% recommended nitrogen.

Studies on Microbial Phosphate Solubilization and Development of Inoculum Formulations

Phosphate-solubilizing bacteria (PSBs) Pantoea cypripedii (PSB-3) and Pseudomonas plecoglossicida (PSB5) isolated from organic field were studied for improvement of maize and wheat crop at

Effect of Mulch on Soybean (Glycine Max L. Merr.) at Cultivation under Drip Irrigation in The South-East of Kazakhstan

. Despite the prevailing adverse weather conditions for the growth and development of soybean in the south-east of Kazakhstan, we have received a fairly high yield (42.2 tonnes / ha) on a variant



Impact of Agricultural Management Practices on Mycorrhizal Functioning and Soil Microbiological Parameters Under Soybean-Based Cropping Systems

The use of modern agricultural techniques for enhanced production has been advocated, however, its impact on below ground microbial networks is overlooked and adversely affected. The abiotic stresses

Effect of Mulch on Soybean ( Glycine Max L . Merr . ) at Cultivation under Drip Irrigation in the South-east of Kazakhstan

Soybean (Glycine max L. Merr) crops were grown in 2013-2015 to determine effect of drip irrigation in the different variants water levels with using mulch on growth and productivity under conditions

Phosphorus nutrition of crops through arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

Though the rock phosphates available in India are of low grade and not fit for the manufacture of phosphatic fertilizer, they can be used with PSM plus AMF as a potential source of P for crop plants, thus bringing down the import of P fertilizers/rock phosphate in the authors' country.

The Effect of Agricultural Practices on Resident Soil Microbial Communities: Focus on Biocontrol and Biofertilization

Soil microbiota mediates 80–90% of the processes in soil and is strongly linked to soil health through its role in nutrient recycling, disease control, and the provision of ecosystem services such as resistance and resilience against disturbance and stress.



Soil enzyme activities under long-term tillage and crop rotation systems in subtropical agro-ecosystems

Agricultural practices that reduce soil degradation and improve agricultural sustainability are needed particularly for tropical/subtropical soils. No-tillage planting causes minimal soil disturbance

Endomycorrhizal Fungal Survival in Continuous Corn, Soybean, and Fallow

After 3 yr under the same cropping regime, spore numbers in soil were corn > soybean >fallow; no significant differences were found between cultivars of the same crop.

Crop management effect on arbuscular mycorrhizae and root growth of flax

The effects of two tillage systems, two preceding crops and the use of phosphorus (P) fertilizer on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) colonization, root biomass and root size of flax were evaluated at two sites in Manitoba, Canada.

Tillage intensity, mycorrhizal and nonmycorrhizal fungi, and nutrient concentrations in maize, wheat, and canola

The colonization of roots by nonmycorrhizal root parasites, and especially by nonfilamentous obligate fungi, need to be taken into account in mycorrhIZal studies conducted under field conditions.

Tillage or no-tillage: Impact on mycorrhizae

The various tillage practices used in the management of soil for maximum crop production may negatively impact the survival of AM fungal propagules, and certain AM species may survive while others may disappear in tilled soil.


Whether communities of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi colonizing the roots of maize were affected by soil tillage practices in a long-term field experiment carried out in Tanikon (Switzerland) is tested.

Managing arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in cropping systems

Low input sustainable cropping systems should replace conventional agriculture, but this requires a more comprehensive understanding of the biological interactions within agro-ecosystems.

Arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis can alleviate drought-induced nodule senescence in soybean plants

It is proposed that alleviation of oxidative damage is strongly involved in AM protection against nodule senescence, whereas both mycorrhizal treatments were protected against oxidative damage.
