The effect of inoculation of peppermint (M. piperita L.) with Glomus fasciculatus (Thaxter sensu Gerdemann) Gerdemann and Trappe in unsterilized soils and differential P availability was studied. Inoculation produced better root infection, consistent with significantly higher total root length, shoot dry weight, P uptake, organic and inorganic P fractions in leaf tissues and oil yield as compared to the uninoculated control, both at deficient and high levels of native soil P.
