ALVARADO CARRILLO, Manuel; DIAZ FRANCO, Arturo  and  PENA DEL RIO, María de los Ángeles. Tomato productivity by arbuscular mycorrhizal in protected agriculture. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2014, vol.5, n.3, pp.513-518. ISSN 2007-0934.

The effectiveness of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in crops under protected agriculture is poorly understood. The obj ective was to study the response oftomato (cv. 'El Cid') to mycorrhizal inoculation in a shade house structure. The seedlings were transplanted into soil, inoculated or not with Rhizophagus intraradices. The inoculated plants significantly increased chlorophyll content, plant height and root colonization compared with non-inoculated plants. Similarly, significant increases were observed in the length, diameter and fruit weight also increased fruit yield by cutting and accumulated in 30% yield. The beneficial effect of R. intraradices as promoter of tomato yield in protected agriculture may represent an efficient production management.

Keywords : mycorrhizal colonization; fruit characteristics; yield.
