Mycorrhial Fungal Application in Citrus Plants

The interaction of citrus with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (AMF) has been a major research focus and international hotspot in the study of citrus plants in recent years. A wide number of pot experiments have conclusively demonstrated that AMF inoculation significantly improved citrus plant development and expedited the uptake of minerals in the soil, particularly P, Fe, Cu, K, and Ca. AMF, on the other hand, causes root hairs to appear in citrus plants under low P conditions, demonstrating that mycorrhizal fungus and root hairs work together to increase nutrient absorption. In addition, Yangtze University’s Prof. Qiang-Sheng Wu headed a team that did a lot of good work on the many mechanisms of arbuscular mycorrhizas in boosting citrus drought tolerance. In the field, AMF inoculation trials have been attempted. As a result, this book presents a thorough overview of mycorrhizal fungi’s roles on citrus, as well as an examination of mycorrhizal fungi’s population diversity on the citrus rhizosphere and the proliferation of indigenous mycorrhizal fungi. The book also discusses how to inoculate potted citrus at the nursery, how to sterilise substrates, how to evaluate applied AMF in the field, and how to maintain citrus mycorrhizas in the field. This book can be used as a technical reference on mycorrhizal fungi’s use in citrus. It also includes various mycorrhizal research field examples. This book can be used as a theoretical textbook and reference book for pomology and citrus researchers, as well as for mycorrhiza researchers and graduate students.
