GARZON, Lina Paola. IMPORTANCE OF ARBUSCULAR MYCORRHIZAE FOR SUSTAINABLE LAND USE IN THE COLOMBIAN AMAZON RAINFOREST. Luna Azul [online]. 2016, n.42, pp.217-234. ISSN 1909-2474.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/luaz.2016.42.14.

The Colombian Amazon is a source of diversity that has been affected by unsustainable commercial crops that have a negative effect on the activity of the soil microbiota and therefore, on the growth of plants. Limited phosphorus and nutrients in the soil must be compensated by the plant root system and enhanced by arbuscular mycorrhizae to increase their level of mobilization. In this sense, the knowledge of the physicochemical characteristics of the soil and its relationship with the presence of mycorrhizae is essential to generate more productive agricultural processes with less environmental impact. This article analyzes scientific publications between 1995 and 2013 which deal with the importance of mycorrhizae for a sustainable land use in the Colombian Amazon, thus revealing its functionality on edaphic stability and its contribution to sustainable commercial agriculture. Mycorrhizae are widely distributed in the Amazonian soil and its synergic relationship with other microorganisms favors the absorption of nutrients in plants. Additionally, they can be a great potential in sustainable agriculture as organic fertilizers though, more research is needed about the native communities of mycorrhizal fungi, mycorrhizal soil potential and its nutritional levels.
