The industrial production of olive oil is accompanied by the accumulation of large quantities of by-products from the olive milling industry that are commonly dispersed as fertilisers, which are nowadays suspected to have potential toxic effects on is omicroflora. The aim of this work has been the investigation of the genetic diversity of bacterial communities present in soil treated with olive husks focusing on the dinitrogen-fixing bacteria.nifH genes were amplified from total soil DNA using… CONTINUE READING
