The aim of study is to access the influence of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi Glomus mosseae (BEG isolate) on the growth, yield and its quality of lettuce. Tree cultivars of lettuce cv. ‘Arktika’, ‘Lollo Bionda’ and ‘Crimson’ were grown from seeds. Fungus preparation was added under seeds during sowing. Control ­without fungus. At the 3rd true leaf stage seedlings were planted in 1 L vegetation pots with peat substratum. Fresh weight of seedlings before transplantation, fresh and dry weight was detected. Results showed that Glomus mosseae stimulated seedling growth. Plant fresh and dry weight increased as result of fungi treatment. Glomus mosseae effect on the yield of lettuce depended on cultivar.
