In order to investigate the effect of arbuscular mycorrhizal pistachios, a pot experiment was carried out in the greenhouse based on a factorial design in a completely randomized design with three replications and two factors. There were four factors, namely pistach levels of Ohadi (Fandoghi) and Kalleghouchi cultivars and culture medium factor at three levels (fungi sterile soil, fungi-free sterile soil, and fungi pistachio seeds were planted in pots containing fungal inoculum.
