Abstract/Contents:"The purpose of these investigations was to determine the response of two low-maintenance turfgrasses to inoculation with six species of vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. Pot studies in a glasshouse were conducted in 1980 and repeated in 1981. Pots containing topsoil of a Leon sand (sandy siliceous, thermic, Aeric Haplaquod) were inoculated with spores of Gigaspora gregaria, Gigaspora pellucida, Glomus clarum, Glomus etunicatum, Glomus macrocarpum, or Glomus mosseae prior to seeding centipedegrass (Eremochloa ophiuroides (Munro) Hack.) or 'Pensacola' bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flugge). All treatments were grown in an unshaded glasshouse for 4 to 5 months in a 2 X 7 factorial design with six replications. By the end of the 1980 study, most treatments were contaminated with mycorrhizae other than the inoculated species indicating that soil pasteurization in a rotary propane heater was not effective in killing all indigenous mycorrhizal fungi. A pH variable of 5.8 versus 7.3 was also included in the 1981 study. Gi. gregaria, Gl. macrocarpum, and Gl. clarum increased centipedegrass topgrowth 1.8 times at pH 7.3. Gl. mosseae had no affect on centipedegrass topgrowth, but P levels increased 21% when centipedegrass was grown at pH 5.8. Gi. pellucida, Gl. mosseae, and Gl. clarum increased Pensacola bahiagrass topgrowth 23%. Soil pH had no affect on topgrowth when bahiagrass was grown in association with mycorrhizae. Gl. clarum produced the highest root infection and spore number when inoculated on Pensacola bahiagrass. Phosphorus levels in Pensacola bahiagrass were unaffected by mycorrhizal inoculation."
