Differences in mycorrhizal colonization of maize selections for high and low ear leaf phosphorus

Differences in mycorrhizal colonization of maize selections for high and low ear leaf phosphorus

Crop Science 24(5): 994-996

Roots of 6 inbreds (3 with high contents of ear leaf P and 3 with low contents of ear leaf P) were assayed for mycorrhizae after 10 weeks' growth under field conditions. A positive rank correlation was observed between ear leaf P content of the inbreds and their percentage mycorrhizal colonization. The high-P inbreds had more mycorrhizae (18% mean colonization) than the low-P inbreds (10% mean colonization).
