Performance of Gmelina arborea with VAM inoculation in acid soil

Export citation

A field experiment to determine the effects of VAM [vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizae] inoculation on the growth and survival of Gmelina in acid soil was conducted in Villa, Baybay, Leyte [Philippines] from November, 1992 to June, 1993. A randomized complete block design with six replications per treatment was used. The treatments were Gmelina seedlings with and without VAM inoculation. Survival rate of both the control and VAM treatments were 100 percent. VAM inoculated seedlings were significantly taller than the uninoculated trees. Gmelina inoculated with VAM was significantly bigger and produced higher biomass compared to the control
