AM Fungi are the obligatory symbiotic fungi, which form association with almost 80-90% of the plants species. AM fungi are known to increase the plant growth by providing the nutrients available in soil to plants. The aim of the experiment was to see the effect of AM Fungi Funneliformis mossesae on the growth of Ocimum sanctum plant. In the Pot culture experiment Ocimum sanctum was grown by sowing seeds. 50% of the pots were inoculated with spores of Funneliformis mosseae while 50% were kept as Control. Plants were uprooted after three months and effect of F.mosseae was observed on the parameters like number of leaves, height of the plant, length of root, fresh and dried weight of plant. The results obtained for all the above parameters were significantly more in F.mosseae inoculated plants as compared to control plants. The results revealed that inoculation of mycorrhiza significantly increases the growth of plant and biomass.

Keywords: Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi, Ocimium sanctum, Funneliformis mosseae, Growth.
