Alginate polymer was evaluated as a carrier for seed inoculation with a genetically modified strainPseudomonas fluorescens F113LacZY, which protects sugar-beet againstPythium-mediated damping-off. F113LacZY survived in alginate beads at 5 log10 CFU/ bead or higher counts for 8 weeks of storage, regardless of the conditions of incubation. In plant… CONTINUE READING
