Effect of Biochar Application and Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Inoculation on Root Colonization and Soil Chemical Properties

Article English OPEN
Yusif, Sunusi Abdu; Dare, Michael Olajire;

Field experiment was carried out in 2013 and 2014 to investigate the effects of biochar application and arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) inoculation on AM root colonization and selected soil chemical properties of two tomato genotypes. The experiment was laid out in a split-... View more
