Abstract:
Piriformospora indica an axenically cultivable mycelium of recently defined family sebacinaceae enhances several growth promotional and attributes several other biochemical traits with significant output by establishing stable associations with a wide range of host plant. The aim of the current study was to co-cultivate P. Indica with A. hypogaea roots in a pot culture conditions. The 45 days in vitro grown treated and untreated transplanted plants to pot showed considerable positive effects on the different growth parameters of A. hypogaea (Fig4). All growth parameters such as No. of pegs /plant (7.8 ± 1.0) Pod yield (g/plant) (9.1 ± 1.1) Shelling (%) (69.8 ± 1.8) Oil (%) (45.5 ±1) Oil yield (3.4 ±2) was significant except number of mature pods/plant, which found non significant The root colonization was confirmed by Microscopy and PCR assay. The primer PiTef produced a band size 220 bp in treated sample. The plant growth parameters under study such as number of pegs per plant, Pod yield, shelling percentage, oil percentage and oil yield were found significantly affected by co-culture with P. Indica.
