In order to investigate the effect of vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizae on the chilling resistance of Zea mays, seeds of two hybrids (Pioneer 3902 and Pride 5) were grown in soil inoculated with Glomus mosseae. Germination tests at 10° C and 25° C showed that Pride 5 was more resistant to chilling than Pioneer 3902. Plants grown at 25° C for 6 weeks were given a 1-week chilling treatment at 10° C and the responses of mycorrhizal and nonmycorrhizal plants of the two hybrids were compared. At 10… CONTINUE READING
