In order to study effect of seed inoculation with mycorrhizal fungi on germination indices and seedling growth of four bread wheat cultivars, experiment was conducted as factorial, completely randomized design with 4 replications in agriculture faculty of University of Guilan in 2013. The treatments in this study included four cultivars of bread wheat (Kohdasht, Morvarid, Moghan 3 and Moghan 1) and micorrihzal fungi in two levels (inoculated and non- inoculated). Results showed that cultivar had significant effect on germination percentage, speed of germination, shoot length, root length, seedling length, root fresh weight, seedling fresh weight, root dry weight and seedling dry weight. Seed inoculation with fungi had significant effect on germination percentage, shoot length, shoot fresh weight, root fresh weight, seedling fresh weight and root dry weight. Interaction of inoculation and cultivar for shoot length, seedling length and root dry weight was significant. The highest germination percentage, occur in inoculation condition Moghan 3 and Kohdasht had the highest and the lowest percentage of germination respectively.
