This study focuses on the effect of indigenous species of mycorrhizal fungi in the transfer of nitrogen in a maize/legume intercropping system. The objective is to determine if intercrop maize benefits from mycorrhizal fungal infection. Based on mycorrhizal infection and plant nutrient uptake, inferences may be made regarding the transfer of nitrogen from the legume to the non-legume via the mycorrhizal fungi. Three levels of phosphorus were used to influence mycorrhizal fungal infection levels at three different climatic locations.
