Bacterial amelioration of ferulic acid toxicity to hydroponically grown lettuce ( Lactuca sativa L . )

Ferulic acid (FA) is released from plant roots and by decomposition of plant residues and may be involved in allelopathic interactions. We isolated bacteria from the recirculating nutrient solution of a closed, hydroponic lettuce culture using nutrient media supplemented with 1.0 mM FA. The isolates were tested for their capacity to degrade FA in concentrations up to 200 mM. Isolates p208, p210 and p307 showed the highest degradation rates and were therefore used for singleand multiple-strain… CONTINUE READING
