ABSTRACT
The interaction between Acaulospora laevis, Glomus fasciculatum, G. mosseae (AM fungi) and vermicompost on growth and nutrient of Methi (Trigonella foenum-graecum) in un-sterile soil was studied. The plants inoculated with G.fasciculatum showed increased fresh weight, shoot length, root length, nodules and leaves over the control. There were also significant increases in nutrients; N,P, Ca and Zn increased in plants treated with G. mosseae; Mg and Cu increased in plants treated together with A. laevis, G.fasciculatum, G. mosseae, and vermicompost; and Fe increased in plants treated with G.fasciculatum. The increase in growth and nutrients of Methi were proportional to the increase in root colonization of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi. The available P and N from AM fungal inoculated soil after harvest was less than that in un-inoculated soil indicating that AM fungi have helped in mobilization of P and N from soil to plant.

Key words : Acaulospora laevis, Glomus fasciculatum, G. mosseae, Nutrient increase
