Eastern black walnut seedlings were inoculated with four vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal-forming fungi and grown in the greenhouse for 198 days. Stem and root growth of inoculated and noninoculated control plants were compared. Growth and development of seedlings inoculated with Glomus microcarpus, G. mosseae, or G. microcarpus + G. fasciculatus were superior to those of seedlings inoculated with G. caledonius or left uninoculated. Application of these findings may be beneficial in reducing the number of cull seedlings produced in nursery operations and in stimulating early growth of outplanted walnut stock. North. J. Appl. For. 3:151-153, Dec. 1986.
