Evaluated the strain DS1, a nitrogenfixing, indole acetic acid-producing strain with phosphate solubilization ability, which has promoted the plant growth in most cases and recommended its use as a biofertilizer. Expand
Co-Evolution of Secondary Metabolites
Plants produce secondary metabolites which are involved in several biological processes and interactions with other organisms from microbes to insects to higher plants. These processes are variouslyExpand
Identification of Beneficial Microbial Consortia and Bioactive Compounds with Potential as Plant Biostimulants for a Sustainable Agriculture
Developing multifunctional synthetic microbial consortia to be used in combination with suitable bioactive compounds for improving crop yield and quality is aimed at. Expand
Rhizobacterial inoculation in combination with mineral fertilizer improves maize growth and yield in poor ferruginous soil in central Benin
The use of biotechnological approaches to increase soil fertility and productivity allows to obtain sustainable agriculture with lesser use of chemical fertilizers. The present study aimed toExpand
Biochemical and Molecular Characterization, and Bioprospecting of Drought Tolerant Actinomycetes from Maize Rhizosphere Soil
These isolates have the potential for use as bio-inoculants, not only to improve drought tolerance in maize but also to be utilized as biofertilizers and biocontrol agents to facilitate growth promotion. Expand
Effect of halotolerant plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria from Bougainvillea glabra on wheat and maize seedlings under NaCl stress
Wheat and maize are the main staple food crops that contribute to human food security. Their growth, however, is reduced under stresses such as salinity. The plant microbiome is associated with eachExpand


Choline and osmotic-stress tolerance induced in Arabidopsis by the soil microbe Bacillus subtilis (GB03).
The beneficial soil bacterium Bacillus subtilis (strain GB03) enhances Arabidopsis Cho and GlyBet synthesis associated with enhanced plant tolerance to osmotic stress and improves drought tolerance in soil-grown plants as characterized by phenotypic comparisons, supported by an elevated accumulation of osmoprotectants.

Growth of Nursery-grown Bamboo Inoculated with Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria in two Tropical Soil Typeswith and without Fertilizer Application
Fertilizer application enhanced the efficiencies of N, P and K uptake, whereas reduced their usage efficiencies, which significantly affected plant response to microbial inoculation. Expand

Effect of co-inoculation of methylotrophic Methylobacterium oryzae with Azospirillum brasilense and Burkholderia pyrrocinia on the growth and nutrient uptake of tomato, red pepper and rice
The results conclusively suggest that M. oryzae being compatible with other microorganisms in the rhizosphere can potentially be used as individual inoculant or co-inoculated with other plant growth promoting bacteria to increase the production in sustainable agricultural systems. Expand
Organic acid production in vitro and plant growth promotion in maize under controlled environment by phosphate-solubilizing fluorescent Pseudomonas
The results implied that organic acid production by Pseudomonas strains is independent of their genetic relatedness and each strain has its own ability of producing organic acids during the solubilization of inorganic phosphates. Expand
Ecology, Genetic Diversity and Screening Strategies of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR)
TheGerman agronomist Hiltner first defined the rhizosphere, in 1904, as the ‘effect’ of the roots of legumes on the surrounding soil, in terms of higher microbial activity because of the organicExpand
