Host Allelopathy and Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi

  • Ghazala Nasim


Allelopathy is a phenomenon, which affects the growth regulating process in all living organisms through the production of special compounds. Innumerable cases of allelopathic phenomenon have been reported in the literature where most of the species have been suggested to have chemical effects against other species. In view of increasing cost and environmental impact of synthetic chemicals, scientists are looking forward to using allelochemicals as bio-management tools. Studies are underway to integrate it with mycorrhizal technology to make it more useful. Preliminary investigations have shown that certain allelochemicals released into the rhizosphere by the host plants are able to trigger growth, colonization potential, and sporulation in certain arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. It is also being suggested to raise cultivars with enhanced ability to produce allelochemicals which promote the mycorrhizal responsiveness of host plants and colonization potential of mycorrhizal fungi.
