A field survey of various districts of Western Rajasthan was under taken to evaluate the occurrence of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungal (AMF) association with them. Pollution has become a worldwide environmental issue it has created many health problems which may destroy the living life on the planet. Many of the regions have been extremely affected with the pollutants from the industries and automobiles. These can be remediated with the help of plants as well and plants are helped with the Mycorrhizae. These Mycorrhizae help the plant to accumulate pollutants within them or lock in the soil so that it can’t move to another place or their form is changed to another so that it cannot make harm to other plants. Plants are having association with the mycorrhizae in a compatible manner. Mycorrhizae increase the root absorption zone by increasing the rooting of the plant. This help the plant to absorb more and more pollutants from the soil to store in the plant itself remediating the soil free from pollutants.
