  • The symbiotic association of endophyte fungus, Neotyphodium lolii, and ryegrass improves the ryegrass resistance to drought. This is shown by a 30 % increase in the number of suckers in infected plants (E+), compared to plants lacking endophyte (E−), and by a higher water potential in the E+ than E− plants. The E+ plants have higher stomatal conductance (gs), transpiration rate, net photosynthetic rate (PN), and photorespiratory electron transport rate than the E− plants. The maximal… CONTINUE READING
