Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) is a type of mycorrhizal fungi which forms the most widespread mutualistic symbiotic with plant roots. Nowadays, biofertilizer containing spores of AMF has been devel- oped, however reports on how long this fertilizer can be stored without losing its infectivity and effective- ness are still few. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate (1) the effect of length of storage period on infectivity of spores of Gigaspora margarita, and (2) the effect of length of storage period on plant growth of maize. G. margarita spores which had been stored for 0, 6, and 22 months were inoculated onto roots of germinated seed of maize and planted in 450 ml pot containing a mixture of sterilized sand and zeolite (2:1 by volume). Root infection was examined at 1, 2, 3 weeks after AMF inoculation. For effec- tiveness study, the germinated seeds of maize were inoculated with G. margarita spores and planted in polybag containing 8 kg of mixture of sterilized sand and zeolite and kept in greenhouse for 8 weeks. The results obtained showed that length of storage period affects the infectivity of G. margarita spore. G. margarita spores from all storage periods gave root infection more than 50% after 8 weeks of inoculation and hence improved the maize growth.
