The effect of mycorrhizal and salicylic acid on rich and poor soils of phosphorus in Fars province: statistical analysis


Polycyclic hydrocarbons are an important group of pollutants that are widely distributed in the environment. Drought is leading to considerably reduce crop production. Better understanding of the drought-tolerance mechanisms would lead into a more productive agriculture. The arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) symbiosis has been shown to improve plant tolerance to drought. Salicylic acid (SA) is a phenolic compound involved in many aspects of plant growth and development. The aim of this work was to study the combined effect of AM symbiosis and SA on Mazie properties under drought stress. Here, effects of adding arbuscular mycorrhizal and Salicylic acid on maize control when it is under the tension of gentle and intense. Results show that for the rich and poor soil of phosphorus where the worst state is for poor soil without AM symbiosis and SA. On the other hand, the best state for maize is for rich soil with AM symbiosis and SA.
