Impact of Arbuscular Mycorrhiza on Uptake, Growth, Yield and Water Relations of Vegetable Plants Subjected To Drought Stress: A Review

El-Tohamy W.A., M.A. Badr and S.D. Abou-Hussein

ABSTRACT: The need of cultivation expansion in the new reclaimed lands in desert areas requires application of certain practices that could be sustainable for such arid regions. Vegetable plants, in general, are seriously affected by severe drought or even a slight shortage of irrigation water and subsequently their growth, productivity and quality are markedly reduced. Most of vegetable plants can be considered as a host for arbuscular mycorrhizal. As a result of mycorrhizal inoculation, the beneficial effects on vegetables include improving absorption of water and nutrients and enhance tolerance of various environmental stresses including drought. However, this article will focus on the effects of arbuscular mycorrhiza (A mycorrzia) on growth, productivity, uptake and water relations of vegetable plants under drought stress conditions.
