The purpose of this study was to obtain The best dose of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (FMA) and the best maize varieties for the growth and high yield of plants in coal mining tailings. This research was conducted using a completely randomized factorial design with 2 treatments. The first factor was the dose of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal (6 treatments). The second factor was 4 varieties of corn. Data was analyzed statistically using the F-test at the 5% significance level. Significant

Parameters measured were: percentage of roots infected with the Arbuscular mycorrizal fungi during growth and at the time of harvest, kernel with per plant. A dose 25 grams of FMA was the best dose for growth and yield of Bisi-2 with avarage production 179,8 gram per plant in coal mining tailings.
