PS Negi, R K Prasad and Ankit Dongariyal
The present experiment was carried out at HNB Garhwal Central University, Srinagar Garhwal to evaluate the Mycorrhizal association of VAM/AM fungi with roots of different medicinal plants. Twenty nine medicinal plants were selected at two experimental sites i.e., Srinagar and Chauras for the experiment. Roots of selected plants was cut into small segments and after ptoper staining with tryphan blue it was observed under the microscope. The experimental findings demonstrated that the roots of Apagus spp. in Srinagar locality had the maximum Mycorrhizal colonization of VAM/AM fungi (85); whereas, the roots of Ricinuscommunis, Atropa acuminate, Beauteamonosperma, Artimisia spp., Terminaliachabula, Cassia fistula and Ocimum sanctum had no Mycorrhizal colonization of VAM/AM fungi.
