MYCORRHIZAE IN AGROFORESTRY: A CASE-STUDY

S.T. NUHAMARA

Abstract


Census of mycorrhizae in Shorea javanica agroforests has been made periodically in the district of Krui, Lampung, Sumatra. Amanita hemibapha (Amanitaceae), Cantharellus cibarius (Cantharella-ceae), Lactarius spp., Russula spp. (Russulaceae) and Scleroderma sp. (Sclerodermataceae) were commonly encountered on the agroforest floor. These mycorrhizal fungi are naturally associated with  the planted trees. The significance
of mycorrhizae for the maximization of growth and sustained productivity of resin is discussed as well as the
need to design well defined agroforestry systems to facilitate growth and to improve production management
techniques.
