The objective of this study was to determine whether inoculation with Bacillus licheniformis MH48 as a plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium (PGPR) could promote nutrient uptake of seedlings of the ornamental plant Camellia japonica in the Saemangeum reclaimed coastal land in Korea. B. licheniformis MH48 inoculation increased total nitrogen and phosphorus content in soils by 2.2 and 20.0 fold, respectively, compared to those without bacterial inoculation. In addition, B. licheniformis MH48…

The Effect of Bacillus licheniformis MH48 on Control of Foliar Fungal Diseases and Growth Promotion of Camellia oleifera Seedlings in the Coastal Reclaimed Land of Korea

The results revealed the effectiveness of B. licheniformis MH48 not only in the control of foliar fungal diseases but also in the growth promotion of C. oleifera seedlings in coastal lands.

Inoculation with Bacillus licheniformis MH48 to improve Camellia japonicaseedling development in coastal lands

The bacterial inoculation tested in this study has the potential to be used for environmentally benign plant production, however, the survival rate between the groups decreased due to salt stress, and the survival rates of the seedlings that received bacterial inoculations was not significantly different from that of uninoculated seedlings.

The Control of Fusarium Root Rot and Development of Coastal Pine (Pinus thunbergii Parl.) Seedlings in a Container Nursery by Use of Bacillus licheniformis MH48

B. licheniformis MH48 showed potential as a biological agent against Fusarium root rot and as a promoter of growth and development of Pinus thunbergii seedlings.

Improved growth of bell pepper (Capsicum annuum) plants by inoculating arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and beneficial rhizobacteria

Both PGPR and AMF improved growth and vigor of bell pepper plants and improved the photochemical efficiency of PSII in comparison to either control plants or plants inoculated with R44 or with the bacterial mix.

Control of Fungal Diseases and Increase in Yields of a Cultivated Jujube Fruit (Zizyphus jujuba Miller var. inermis Rehder) Orchard by Employing Lysobacter antibioticus HS124

Results revealed that L. antibioticus HS124 could not only control fungal diseases but also promote fruit yield in jujube farms.

The Role of Lysobacter antibioticus HS124 on the Control of Fall Webworm (Hyphantria cunea Drury) and Growth Promotion of Canadian Poplar (Populus canadensis Moench) at Saemangeum Reclaimed Land in Korea

This study investigated the biocontrol potential of cuticle degrading chitinase and protease secreted by Lysobacter antibioticus HS124 against H. cunea larvae to determine the larvicidal activity in the laboratory experiments, and found it caused morphological damage on the larvae cuticles and subsequent mortality.

Bacillus licheniformis PR2 Controls Fungal Diseases and Increases Production of Jujube Fruit under Field Conditions

Results confirmed that eco-friendly B. licheniformis PR2 could effectively control fungal diseases in jujube orchards and improve its fruit size and yield.

Control of Fungal Diseases and Fruit Yield Improvement of Strawberry Using Bacillus velezensis CE 100

B. velezensis CE100 could be a safe, ecofriendly biocontrol alternative to chemical fungicides in strawberry production by controlling the fungal diseases but also through enhancing plant growth.

Potential Role of Combined Microbial Inoculants and Plant of Limnocharis flava on Eliminating Cadmium from Artificial Contaminated Soil

This study aimed to investigate the possibility of eliminating cadmium (Cd) from contaminated agricultural soil using a combination of microbial inoculants of Penicillium chrysogenum fungus and

Identification of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria That Improve the Performance of Greenhouse-Grown Petunias under Low Fertility Conditions

This study identified potential PGPR that can be used as biostimulants to produce high-quality greenhouse ornamentals with lower fertilizer inputs and identified genes that were potentially involved in plant growth promotion.



Role of Pseudomonas putida Indoleacetic Acid in Development of the Host Plant Root System

It is suggested that bacterial IAA plays a major role in the development of the host plant root system.

Isolation of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria from wheat rhizosphere and their effect on improving growth, yield and nutrient uptake of plants

It is demonstrated that application of PGPR with N fertilizer increased the fertilizer N efficiency by increasing N content and N uptake in plants and could be a viable supplementary strategy for maximum benefits in terms of cost of production and sustaining productivity.

The salt stress relief and growth promotion effect of Rs-5 on cotton

The effect of the Rs-5 bacteria strain, identified as Klebsiella oxytoca and isolated with ACC as the sole nitrogen source, on salt stressed cotton seedling growth was studied. It was demonstrated

Effects of Rhizobium Inoculation and Urea Fertilization on Faba Bean (Vicia faba L.) Production in a Semi-Desert Zone

The results of the study indicated the efficiency of using biofertilizer based on Rhizobium isolate ENRRI 9 in increasing the yield of faba bean in the studied sites in a semi-desert zone in Sudan.

Phosphate-solubilizing microorganisms associated with the rhizosphere of mangroves in a semiarid coastal lagoon

The production of organic acids by these mangrove rhizosphere microorganisms as a possible mechanism involved in the solubilization of insoluble calcium phosphate is proposed.
