Abstract: A screen house experiment was conducted to investigate the growth and nutrient uptake as influenced by organic manure and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) in Capsicum annum. The treatments were inoculated with arbuscular mycorrhizal (M+), without arbuscular mycorrhizal (M-) and with application of organic manure; with pig dung (PD+), without pig dung (PD-), with poultry manure (PM+), without poultry manure (PM-). The experiment was laid out in factorial combination using complete randomized design with three replicates. The result of this study showed that at 5 weeks after planting plant height increased with the application of pig dung and poultry manure. Stem diameter increased across the weeks but at 5 weeks after planting mycorrhizal inoculation, with pig dung and poultry manure increased. The application of Pig dung increased the root and shoot biomass of plant when compared with the inoculated plants. The combined application of pig dung and mycorrhizal inoculation significantly increase Mg uptake when compared with control. The concentration of nutrients especially phosphorus must be considered in the soil before inoculation with AMF and application of organic manure maintained the soil fertility.
