Interactions between the mycorrhizal fungus Glomus monosporum and the root rot pathogen Thielaviopsis basicola and their effects on tobacco plants were investigated over a 4 week period. Mycorrhizal tobacco plants, obtained by preinoculation with G. monosporum, showed a better tolerance to T. basicola than non-mycorrhizal seedlings. Root and leaf dry weights of mycorrhizal plants were greater than those of controls. Mycorrhizal plants inoculated with T. basicola showed higher root and leaf dry weights than non-mycorrhizal infected plants, but lower values than mycorrhizal plants which were not infected. No appreciable differences in free aminoacid composition were observed among the different treatments with two exceptions: proline content was higher in infected and mycorrhizal infected plants compared to control and mycorrhizal plants; arginine content was higher in mycorrhizal plants than in all the other treatments.
