Özet

The influence of mycorrhiza species and growing media (GM) on the growth and nutrient uptake of citrus seedlings (sour orange (Citrus aurantium L.)) was studied. The experiments were conducted over 10 months using: four growth media, eight mycorrhiza species, one cocktail of mycorrhizae spores and one indigenous mycorrhiza spore (collected from the citrus orchard rhizosphere). Four different growing media were tested under controlled greenhouse conditions: GM-A, andesitic tuff + peat (1:1, v/v); GM-B, andesitic tuff + compost (1:1, v/v); GM-C, andesitic tuff + peat + compost (2:1:1, v/v/v) and GM-D andesitic tuff + peat + soil (from the Balcali region) (2:1:1, v/v/v).
