The role of rock-phosphate-solubilizing fungi and vesicular–arbusular-mycorrhiza (VAM) in growth of wheat plants fertilized with rock phosphate
TLDR
Rock phosphate fertilization and inoculation with Glomus constrictum and rock-phosphate-solubilizing fungi (A. niger and P. citrinum) significantly increased dry matter yield of wheat plants under all experimental conditions, but the effect was more evident in non- sterilized pot soils and in the field than in sterilized pots. Expand
The impact of pesticides on arbuscular mycorrhizal and nitrogen-fixing symbioses in legumes
TLDR
The results suggest that pesticides affect plant growth, Rhizobium/Bradyrhizobial and AM fungi at different stages of plant growth and effects varied with pesticide and plant species. Expand
Microbial Populations and Enzyme Activities in Soil Treated with Pesticides
The effect of soil treatment with brominal (a herbicide) and theinsecticide selecron (the equivalent field rates and five-fold) on population counts of bacteria, actinomycetes and celluloyticfungi inExpand
Microbial populations, ammonification and nitrification in soil treated with urea and inorganic salts
TLDR
Soil fertilization with urea at rates of 0.2 and 0.5 mg N/g soil was toxic for total counts of bacteria and fungi except with cellulolytic fungi where growth was promoted by addition of urea after 90-d incubation and the overall effect of the addition of inorganic salts on total mineralized nitrogen was promotive. Expand
Biocontrol of fungal root rot diseases of crop plants by the use of rhizobia and bradyrhizobia
TLDR
The tested rhizobium and bradyrhizobia significantly suppressed the growth of the three soil-borne root-infecting fungi (Fusarium solani, Macrophominia phasolina andRhizoctonia solani) either in the absence or presence of iron, indicating that the siderophore played a minor role in the biocontrol potential of RhizOBium andBradyrhZobium against pathogenic fungi. Expand
Effects of an organophosphorus insecticide on the growth and cellulolytic activity of fungi
TLDR
The organophosphorus insecticide Selecron significantly decreased respiration, mycelial protein, extracellular protein and mycelia dry weight of Aspergillus fumigatus, A. terreus and Myceliophthora thermophila when grown at 45°C. Expand
Physiological aspects of fungi isolated from root nodules of faba bean (Vicia faba L.).
TLDR
Four fungal species, Aspergillus awamori, A. flavus, Penicillium chrysogenum and Trichoderma koningii showed the highest rates of enzyme formation and the effect of the addition of six trace elements to the growth media revealed some dependency on species, enzyme and metal ion. Expand
Availability of phosphorus and sulfur of insecticide origin by fungi
TLDR
The relationship between extracellular protein excretion and organic P and S mineralization from insecticides was highly significant with the addition of inorganic phosphorus or sulfur to the growth media, suggesting a direct relationship between pesticide degradation and microbial protein production. Expand
The role of cellulose-decomposing fungi in nitrogenase activity ofAzotobacter chroococcum
TLDR
The best nitrogenase activity was recorded in cultures containing faba bean straw followed by that in cultures having wheat straw, sugar cane leaves, carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) or cellulose. Expand
Wheat straw and cellulolytic fungi application increases nodulation, nodule efficiency and growth of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graceum L.) grown in saline soil
TLDR
The ability of cellulolytic fungi and wheat straw incorporation to improve the nodulation, growth and nitrogen status of fenugreek grown in saline soils was evaluated and the greatest values of nodulation and growth parameters were obtained with a straw-Trichoderma harzianum combination. Expand
