Inoculation with plant growth-promoting bacteria (PGPB) improves salt tolerance of maize seedling

Our objective was to evaluate the role of plant growth-promoting bacteria to protect maize (Zea mays L.) plants against salt damage. Bacillus aquimaris DY-3 based on their 16S rDNA sequences, the most tolerant to salinity and the synthesis of indole acetic acid was selected for further studies. Strain was inoculated on maize roots growing in sterilized sand… CONTINUE READING
