The research aims to promote AMF compatibility on corn and sorghum host plants in the dry land of central Lombok. The study was conducted using a complete random design factorial, with 2 factors, factor 1. Isolate type with 4 levels i.e. I0 = without isolates, I1 = Ash isolates, I2 = isolate black and I3 = isolate mixture of ash and black. Factor 2 is the type of host with 2 levels is M1 = host corn and M2 = host sorghum. The results showed that there was a noticeable influence on the host type factor on the high measurement parameters of plants, the number of leaves and the broad index of leaves. There is an increase in soil nutrient levels, especially nutrient levels C and P. Spores density increased significantly from 50 spores inoculated into thousands of spores at the end of research with an effective and superior spore namely the Genus Gigaspora.
