The present investigation has several aspects related to drought tolerance in Arbuscular Mycorrhizal (AM) tomato plants. The study included both shoot and root tissues in order to reveal the preferred target tissue for AM effects against drought stress. Non-AM and AM soybean plants were grown under well-watered or drought-stressed conditions, and oxidative damage to lipids, and other parameters were determined. Results showed that AM plants were protected against drought, as shown by their significantly higher shoot and root biomass production. These results showed that AMF inoculation stimulated growth and enhanced drought tolerance of tomato plants through changes in morphological, physiological and biochemical traits. This symbiosis might be an effective cultivation practice in improving the yield and development for tomato plants.
