A study was conducted to determine the effect of arbuscular mycorrihzal fungi (AMF) on the growth of Swietenia macrophylla seedlings under nursery condition. It was found that inoculation with AMF at nursery stage can help the plant to grow healthier especially in height and collar diameter. So AMF is recommended to be used as a bio-fertiliser for seedlings at early stage. These seedlings will tolerate the field plantation shock more effectively than non-inoculated seedlings especially in drought scenario.
Keywords: Mahogany, AMF, Nursery, Bio-fertiliser.
