Key message This article describes the composition of root exudates, how these metabolites are released to the rhizosphere and their importance in the recruitment of beneficial microbiota that alleviate plant stress. Abstract Metabolites secreted to the rhizosphere by roots are involved in several processes. By modulating the composition of the root exudates, plants can modify soil properties to adapt and ensure their survival under adverse conditions. They use several strategies such as (1… 

The involvement of organic acids in soil fertility, plant health and environment sustainability

Increasing demand for safe food by an ever-growing human population emphasizes the urgency for increasing crop yields and reducing the losses caused by abiotic and biotic stresses; a partial solution

Integrated Metabolomics and Morpho-Biochemical Analyses Reveal a Better Performance of Azospirillum brasilense over Plant-Derived Biostimulants in Counteracting Salt Stress in Tomato

Increased soil salinity is one of the main concerns in agriculture and food production, and it negatively affects plant growth and crop productivity. In order to mitigate the adverse effects of

The Importance of Microorganisms for Sustainable Agriculture—A Review

In the face of climate change, progressive degradation of the environment, including agricultural land negatively affecting plant growth and development, endangers plant productivity. Seeking

Soil composition and rootstock genotype drive the root associated microbial communities in young grapevines

Soil microbiota plays a significant role in plant development and health and appears to be a major component of certain forms of grapevine decline. A greenhouse experiment was conducted to study the

Explore the interaction between root metabolism and rhizosphere microbiota during the growth of Angelica sinensis

Angelica sinensis is a medicinal plant widely used to treat multiple diseases in Asia and Europe, which contains numerous active components with therapeutic value. The interaction between root and

Research progress of rhizosphere microorganisms in Fritillaria L. medicinal plants

The soil’s rhizosphere is a highly active place where the exchange of substances and information occurs among plants, soils, and microorganisms. The microorganisms involved are crucial to the

Restoration of degraded alpine grasslands alters plant–microbial competition for nitrogen

Plant–microbial interaction for nitrogen (N) is important in plant growth, soil fertility, and function of grasslands. However, it remains unclear how plant–microbial competition for N changes after

Biochar modifies the content of primary metabolites in the rhizosphere of well-watered and drought-stressed Zea mays L. (maize)

As root exudation may be altered by drought stress, we investigated if biochar amendment could moderate these effects. In a pot experiment with maize, treatments amended with straw or wood biochar

Pearl millet genotype impacts microbial diversity and enzymatic activities in relation to root-adhering soil aggregation

This study demonstrates that in pearl millet, the rhizosheath size is related to soil nutrient dynamics and microbiota diversity, however, it also shows that other factors shape this trait and their relative importance must be determined.
