Improved tolerance of maize plants to salt stress by arbuscular mycorrhiza is related to higher accumulation of soluble sugars in roots

Abstract

The effect of colonization with the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Glomus mosseae (Nicol. & Gerd.) Gerdemann & Trappe on the growth and physiology of NaCl-stressed maize plants (Zea mays L. cv. Yedan 13) was examined in the greenhouse. Maize plants were grown in sand with 0 or 100 mM NaCl and at two phosphorus (P) (0.05 and 0.1 mM) levels for 34 days… (More)
