Exogenous application of endomycorrhiza in the soil (T7 : 0.15% Cd(NO3)2+5 mM putrescine+mycorrhiza) showed the mitigation effect by increasing the germination by 31.2% as compared to T6 [0.07% Cd(NO3)2] at days after sowing. When treatment T13 [0.15% Cd(NO3)2+mycorrhiza] was compared to T12 [0.15% Cd(NO3)2], the germination increased significantly by 11.58% at proposed days after sowing. So, the treatment with mycorrhiza showed the best combination for the mitigation of cadmium toxicity for the germination.
