First evidence for a major cover crop effect on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and organic maize growth
(Springer Paris, 2013-11)
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are increasingly used in organic cropping systems to increase yields. Although cover crops are largely used in organic farming, there is little knowledge on the impact of cover crops on native ...
Changes in the composition of native root arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities during a short-term cover crop-maize succession
(Springer Verlag, 2016)
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) establish mutualistic associations with the most important agricultural food and feed crops, sustaining plant growth, nutrient uptake and tolerance of biotic and abiotic stresses. ...
Functional identity has a stronger effect than diversity on mycorrhizal symbiosis and productivity of field grown organic tomato
Beneficial soil biota, and in particular, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are increasingly being recognized as key elements of organic and low-input agriculture where agrobiodiversity is central to enhanced crop production. ...
Soil management practices affect arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi propagules, root colonization and growth of rainfed maize
(AIMS Press, 2018)
Agronomic management practices influence beneficial soil biota, especially arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). AMF colonizes about eighty percent of land plants, promoting absorption of essential nutrients and crop growth. ...
