  • Effects of the pesticides Afugan, Brominal, Gramoxone, Selecron and Sumi Oil on growth, nodulation and root colonisation by arbuscular mycrrhizal (AM) fungi of the legumes cowpea (Vigna sinensis L.), common bean (Phaseolus vulgarisL.) and Lupin (Lupinus albus L.) were determined. The growth of all plants was inhibited by pesticide application, but this effect varied with the pesticide and plant species. Nodule formation was significantly inhibited in cowpea after 20 days of planting by all… CONTINUE READING
