Abstract:

The information regarding the effect of the mycorrhizal inoculation on different Echinacea species is not available in detail. Therefore, here we determined the changes in the biochemical composition of echinacea as a result of mycorrhizal inoculation. This experiment was undertaken to assess the effect of the mycorrhizal association on biochemical properties of different Echinacea species (E. angustifolia, E. purpurea, E. pallida). Here various echinacea species were inoculated with mycorrhiza to examine the species richness in different traits. The results established that biological traits (plant dry matter, chlorophyll content, carotenoid, N content, P content, K content). Among biochemical properties chlorophyll content, carotenoid and N, P, K were significantly higher under E. Purpurea than the E. angustifolia and E.pallida. Total dry matter was higher under E. angustifolia (49.23 g) and minimum dry matter was found under E. pallida(40.07 g). Overall, mycorrhizal inoculation is effective in improving Echinacea.
