AbstractA field experiment was carried out to compare the effectiveness of inoculation with three arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi, namely Glomus intraradices Schenck & Smith, Glomus deserticola (Trappe, Bloss. & Menge) and Glomus mosseae (Nicol & Gerd.) Gerd. & Trappe, and the addition of Aspergillus niger-treated dry olive cake (DOC) in the presence of rock phosphate, in increasing root nitrate reductase (NR) and acid phosphatase activities, mycorrhizal colonization, plant growth and nutrient uptake in Dorycnium pentaphyllum L. seedlings afforested in a semiarid degraded soil. Three months after planting, both the addition of fermented DOC and the mycorrhizal inoculation treatments had increased root NR activity significantly, particularly the inoculation with G. deserticola (by 75 per cent with respect to non-inoculated plants), but they had no effect on root acid phosphatase. Mycorrhizal inoculation treatments with G. deserticola or G. mosseae on their own were even more effective than the addition of fermented DOC alone in improving the growth and (NPK) foliar nutrients of D. pentaphyllum plants. The combined treatment involving the application of microbially-treated agrowastes and mycorrhizal inoculation with AM fungi, particularly with G. mosseae, can be proposed as a successful revegetation strategy for D. pentaphyllum in P-deficient soils under semiarid Mediterranean conditions
