Global environmental change, incorrect use and poor husbandry of agricultural land can have rapidly deleterious effects on the soil environment, and these can include increased severity and duration of stress conditions such as drought, flooding and salinity. Both low and high soil water contents can reduce plant growth, and the balances of water and salinity in soils are major factors that limit food production worldwide. The ability of a plant to form a symbiotic relationship with AM fungi is a key factor that can improve yields under such environmental stresses.
