    Abstract

    Increasing rice production needs to be performed by a variety of efforts involving the healthy, savety, and sustainability aspects of resources and environments. One of the choices is using biofertilizer of arbuscular mycorrhiza. Application of mycorrhizal iniculant as biofertilizer in the fields often fails or gives no result. The main factors of the failure of mycorrhizal application can be caused by no review for the specifity of mycorrhiza with the host or autobion or with media conditios of with the aspect of plant dependency to mycorrhiza. The purposes of present study was to find the mycorrhizal strains which having high tolerancy and effectivity for rice either in upland or wetland conditions or for both conditions, in order to be used as biofertilizer specific for rice. The present research was performed through several steps. The first step was conducted by exploration of mycorrhizal diversity in the forms of actual and potential spores from rhizosfer and rice roots in upland and wetland of Alfisol Jumantono, Inceptisol Klaten and Sleman, Andisol Tengaran, Oxisol Tuntang, and Entisol Colomadu. Population density and mycorrhizal diversity were different among the sampling sites. It was found mycorrhizal spores in a variety of soil moisture conditions. The specificity of mycorrhiza for rice has not been found yet from the observation of field samples. The following step of research is examination of infectifity and effectivity of mycorhizal culture in a variety of soil moisture conditions under controlled conditions in greenhouse and then the results will be confirmed by the examination in natural conditions in rice fields
