Abstract Sustainable improvement in the yield of aromatic plants for essential oil production is the need of time. For this many technologies are employed today by the farmers. However use of rhizosphere fungi seems to be highly economical, user friendly and sustainable, hence this approach is considered in the present investigation. For present study lemon grass seedlings were raised in plastic pots containing soil inoculated with rhizosphere fungi. The effect of rhizosphere fungi on essential… Expand
Pre-inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi affects essential oil quality and the reproduction of root lesion nematode in Cymbopogon citratus.
Although both AMF treatments led to effective root colonization (> 84%), fungus inoculation was not effective in reducing P. brachyurus population density, Nevertheless, C. etunicatum promoted an increase in shoot weight, and AMF treatment contributed to preserving essential oil composition in nematode-infected plants.

Influence of Rhizosphere Fungi on Essential Oil Production and Menthol Content in Mentha arvensis L.
Influence of rhizosphere fungi on EO of M. arvensis seedlings was studied by using pots containing inoculated soil containing essential oil content showed a maximum of 0.88 % in the treatment of T. viride followed by A. niger, A. terreus and R. stolonifer. Expand
Plant growth and essential oil content of Mentha crispa inoculated with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi under different levels of phosphorus
The density of spores and AMF root colonization, the plant fresh matter, and the content and composition of the EO of M. crispa were determined four months after transplantation; the density of AMF spores was not significantly affected by the P addition; however, the AMFroot colonization decreased significantly when P was applied to the soil.
