Mycorrhiza can alleviate drought damage effects through osmoregulation improvement in plant cells. This research was conducted to investigate mycorrhiza on phosphorus content, phosphatase activity and physiological mechanisms on hulless barley against drought stress. Therefore, the seedling was saw in randomized complete block with two factors, Glomus intraradices (with and without inoculation) and three levels of water stress ‘90% FC (Control), 60%FC (mild water stress) and 30%FC (Sever water stress). Results showed that mild stress, mycorrhizal root volume and colonization percent were highest. Phosphorus leaves of mycorrhizal and phosphatase enzymes were highest against severe drought stress. Mycorrhiza improved phosphatase activity, carbohydrate and starch, the proline content of leaves and roots. Although mycorrhizal affects not only on plant water relations, but also improves P acquisition and host growth.
