A rationally assembled microbial community for growing Tagetes patula L. in a lunar greenhouse.

Abstract

Well-defined plant-associated bacteria were used for growing French marigolds (Tagetes patula L.) in anorthosite, a substrate of low bioavailability, analogous to a lunar rock. The consortium was composed mainly of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria and biocontrol agents that were used for seed inoculation. Simultaneously, the sterile substrate was… (More)
