The application of plant-growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) at field scale has been hindered by an inadequate understanding of the mechanisms that enhance plant growth, rhizosphere incompetence and the inability of bacterial strains to thrive in different soil types and environmental conditions. Actinobacteria with their sporulation, nutrient cycling, root colonization, bio-control and other plant-growth-promoting activities could be potential field bio-inoculants. We report the isolation of…

The Impact of Growth-Promoting Streptomycetes Isolated from Rhizosphere and Bulk Soil on Oilseed Rape (Brassica napus L.) Growth Parameters

The integrated application of PGPS (Plant Growth Promoting Streptomyces) from the rhizosphere of oil Seed rape is a promising strategy to improve the growth of oilseed rape.

Exploring the Plant Growth-Promotion of Four Streptomyces Strains from Rhizosphere Soil to Enhance Cucumber Growth and Yield

The genus Streptomyces is the most abundant and essential microbes in the soil microbial community. Streptomyces are familiar and have great potential to produce a large variety of bioactive

Mixed growth of Salix species can promote phosphate-solubilizing bacteria in the roots and rhizosphere

Phosphorus (P) is an essential plant nutrient that can limit plant growth due to low availability in the soil. P-solubilizing bacteria in the roots and rhizosphere increase the P use efficiency of

Alkaline Phosphatase Activity of Plant Growth-Promoting Actinomycetes and Their Genetic Diversity Based on the phoD Gene

The aims of the present study were to analyze the ability of maize rhizosphere actinomycetes to solubilize phosphate, determine alkaline phosphatase activity, and study their genetic diversity based on phoD gene.

This study not only founded growth-promoting properties of T .

Growth Promotion of Phaseolus vulgaris and Arabidopsis thaliana Seedlings by Streptomycetes Volatile Compounds

Streptomyces are recognized as antipathogenic agents and plant-growth-promoting rhizobacteria. The objective of this study was to evaluate the capacities of four antifungal Streptomyces strains to:



Characterization of beneficial properties of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria isolated from sweet potato rhizosphere

The rhizobacterial isolates showed the several beneficial traits that could improve plant growth and intrinsic antibiotic resistance.

Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria as biofertilizers

This review focuses on the known, the putative, and the speculative modes-of-action of PGPR, which include fixing N2, increasing the availability of nutrients in the rhizosphere, positively influencing root growth and morphology, and promoting other beneficial plant–microbe symbioses.

Isolation and Characterization of Actinomycete Antagonists of a Fungal Root Pathogen

Preliminary glasshouse experiments indicated that some of the actinomycetes protect germinating lettuce seeds against damping-off caused by P. ultimum, and some correlations between delayed seed germination and reduced 18-day plant biomass yields were seen.

Organic acids production byStreptomyces spp. isolated from soil, rhizosphere and mycorrhizosphere of pine (Pinus sylvestris L.)

Soil streptomycetes produced more α-ketoglutaric-, lactic- and succinic acid than the root zone microorganisms, and small repeatability of the results ofα-keto acids determinations in these organisms was stated.

Antibiotic activity of epiphytic bacteria isolated from intertidal seaweeds

A preliminary characterization of the antibiotic substances produced by these epiphytic bacteria demonstrated that they are low molecular weight compounds, thermolabile, and anionic and are not affected by proteolytic enzymes.
