Abstract The present study was undertaken to assess the benefit and compare the functioning of AM fungi on wheat grown conventionally and on beds. Ten treatment combinations were used, treatments 1 and 2: no fertilizers with and without arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi (In vitro produced Glomus intraradices); 3:100\% of recommended NPK: (120 kg ha(-1) N; 60 kg ha(-1) P; 50 kg ha(-1) K), and 4 and 5: 75\% of recommended NPK dose with and without AM inoculation in a 5 × 2 split-plot design on wheat using conventional/flat system and elevated/raised bed system. The maximum grain yield (3.84 t ha(-1)) was obtained in AM fungi inoculated plots of raised bed system applied with 75\% NPK and was found higher (although non- significant) than the conventional (3.73 t ha(-1)) system. The AM inoculation at 75\% fertilizer application can save 8.47, 5.38 kg P and 16.95, 10.75 kg N ha(-1), respectively, in bed and conventional system. While comparing the yield response with 100\% fertilizer application alone, AM inoculation was found to save 20.30, 15.79 kg P and 40.60, 31.59 kg N ha(-1), respectively, in beds and conventional system. Mycorrhizal inoculation at 75\% NPK application particularly in raised bed system seems to be more efficient in saving fertilizer inputs and utilizing P for producing higher yield and growth unlike non-mycorrhizal plants of 100\% P. Besides the yield, mycorrhizal plants grown on beds had higher AM root colonization, soil dehydrogenases activity, and P-uptake. The present study indicates that the inoculation of AM fungi to wheat under raised beds is better response (although non-significantly higher) to conventional system and could be adopted for achieving higher yield of wheat at reduced fertilizer inputs after field validation.
