    Jeethu Anu Geo*, Anu S Nair and AK Vijayan

    Arbuscular mycorrhizae (AM) are beneficial symbionts for plant growth. They are associated with higher plants by a symbiotic association, and benefit plants in uptake of phosphorus nutrients, production of growth hormones, increase of proteins, lipids and sugars levels, helps in heavy metal binding, salinity tolerance, disease resistance, and even in the uptake of radionuclides. Mycorrhizal genes are also applicable in improvement of crop plants, due to their delivery into plants, by a process called, particle bombardment.
