Abstract

Agarwood is a type of semitoleran plant, so that for planting the seedlings should be grown under the shade. For planting in open land, it requires treatment in which one of them is using seedlings inoculated with arbuscularmycorrhizal fungi. The Aim of the research were: (1) to obtain information on agarwood growth that has been inoculated with fungi mycorrhizalarbuscular when planted in the open land, and (2) ability to grow between agarwood seedlings inoculated  mycorrhizal that was planted in the shade and in the open area. Split Plot randomized block design was applied with treatments : the first plot consisting of plant had been inoculated with mycorrhizae and without mycorrhizal inoculation, and the sub plot was the types of shading that consists of : open land, paranet 60 % intensity and  natural vegetation. To reduce variabilty of site  topographical differences were separated as bloks. Variables measured were :plant height (cm), stem diameter (mm), number of leaves and survival percentage of plant. The results show that the height and diameter growth of seedlings innoculated with mycorrhizae were higher than non innoculated. The seedlings innoculated with mycorrhizal fungi were planted in the paranet shading grew better and significantly different compared to the vegetation shading. Seedlings innoculatedmycorrhizal that were planted in open land grew better and significantly different compared to vegetation shading.  This study results indicate that planting agarwood in the open land can be done using seedlings inoculated arbuscularmycorrhizal fungi.
