Mycorrhizae Benefit Survival and Growth of Sweetgum Seedlings in the Nursery
Abstract:In small plots where soil was fumigated with methyl bromide before sowing, roots of sweet-gum (Liquidambar styraciflua L.) seedlings were non-mycorrhizal. When such soil was inoculated with naturalist occurring endomycorrhizal fungi, or with a pure culture of Glomus mosseae, 1-0 seedlings were thrifty, averaging eight times taller and approximately 80 times greater in ovendry top weight than the non-mycorrhizal controls.
