Effects of interactions of the collembolan Protaphorura armata, the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices and the foot and root pathogenic fungus Fusarium culmorum on growth and health of wheat plants were studied in modified Leonard bottle-jars containing sterile sand and peat. The mycorrhizal colonisation, the root and shoot dry weight and the disease index were determined. Also the number of adult Collembola was determined and their gut content analysed. The presence of Collembola did not decrease the positive effect of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices on the plant biomass and did not reduce the biocontrol capacity of this fungus.

Abstract

Effects of interactions of the collembolan Protaphorura armata, the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices and the foot and root pathogenic fungus Fusarium culmorum on growth and health of wheat plants were studied in modified Leonard bottle-jars containing sterile sand and peat. The mycorrhizal colonisation, the root and shoot dry weight and the disease index were determined. Also the number of adult Collembola was determined and their gut content analysed. The presence of Collembola did not decrease the positive effect of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices on the plant biomass and did not reduce the biocontrol capacity of this fungus.
