Effects of Arbucular Mycorrhizal Fungi Applications On Eggplant Seedling Development
The purpose of this research was conducted to determine the effects of arbuscular Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi applications (Gigaspora margarita and Glomus intraradices) on seedlings growth parameters of Aydın siyahı, Faselis F1, Fabina F1, Topan, Vezir F1, Kemer, Uzun patlıcan 50896, Uzun patlıcan 50516, Kara patlıcan 50710 and Pala eggplant seedlings grown into the plastic greenhouse in Selçuk University. In results, hypocotil lenght of Aydın siyahı and Kara patlıcan 59710, cothyledone width of Uzun patlıcan 50896, cothyledone length, shoot lenght and diameter of Vezir F1, number of leaves of Aydın siyahı, shoot fresh weight of Topan and Uzun patlıcan 50516, root fresh weight of Topan patlıcan seedlings were found to be higher than the other eggplant cultivars. In the results of AMF applications, hypocotil length, cothiledone width, cothyledone length, shoot length, number of leaves, root fresh weight had been increased by G. margarita applications. Also, G. intraradices applications had been increased the shoot fresh weight. In cultivar x Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi interactions, G. margarita exhibited better results on the hypocotil length of seedlings of Aydın siyahı, cothyledone width of Uzun patlıcan 50896, shoot length and number of leaves of Fabina F1, Kemer and shoot fresh weight of Uzun patlıcan 50516, root fresh weight of Topan. Consequently, it was shown that it is necessary to determine the proper cultivar materials and proper Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi rage interactions to get a better success in seedling development of eggplant.
