In this study, the polyphosphate and AM fungal protein contents were computed in the hyphal compartment designed. The compartmentalized pots depicted two sectors namely the root compartment at the centre with a maize plant and the hyphal compartment around the root zone that holded the hyphal components. The experimental set up screened the hyphal components alone that enabled the estimation of various parameters viz., hyphal length, hyphal biomass, hyphal glomalin and polyphosphate contents in the hyphal compartment where, treatments with G. intraradices ranked highest in hypal biomass (28.2 mg cm-3), hyphal glomalin (15.40 µg of BRSP/ mg of hyphae) and hyphal polyphosphate contents (35 and 102 µg of BRSP/ mg of hyphae in extramatical and intraradical hyphae respectively).

Key words: Compartmentalized pot, Hyphal length, Hyphal glomalin, Extramatical, Intraradical, Polyphosphate.
