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… 

Impact of Silicon on Plant Nutrition and Significance of Silicon Mobilizing Bacteria in Agronomic Practices

Globally, rejuvenation of soil health is a major concern due to the continuous loss of soil fertility and productivity. Soil degradation decreases crop yields and threatens global food security.

Background: Plants exude a plethora of compounds to communicate with their environment. Although much is known about above-ground plant communication, we are only beginning to fathom the complexities

Insights into the metabolic specificities of pathogenic strains from the Ralstonia solanacearum species complex

This study developed a new bioinformatic pipeline to build high-quality metabolic networks and used a combination of metabolic modeling and high-throughput phenotypic Biolog microplates to look for the metabolic differences between 11 strains across the three species.

Large-diameter trees and deadwood correspond with belowground ectomycorrhizal fungal richness

Background Large-diameter trees have an outsized influence on aboveground forest dynamics, composition, and structure. Although their influence on aboveground processes is well studied, their role in

Effects of continuous cropping Jiashi muskmelon on rhizosphere microbial community

Introduction The continuous cropping of crops can result in the deterioration of the soil environment and cause a decline in plant health and yield, which complicates agricultural production.

Transcriptomics and metabolomics reveal tolerance new mechanism of rice roots to Al stress

The prevalence of soluble aluminum (Al) ions is one of the major limitations to crop production worldwide on acid soils. Therefore, understanding the Al tolerance mechanism of rice and applying Al

Continuous-cropping-tolerant soybean cultivars alleviate continuous cropping obstacles by improving structure and function of rhizosphere microorganisms

Introduction Soybean continuous cropping will change soil microorganisms and cause continuous cropping obstacles, resulting in a significant yield decline. Different soybean cultivars have different



Mitigation of salt stress in wheat plant (Triticum aestivum) by ACC deaminase bacterium Enterobacter sp. SBP-6 isolated from Sorghum bicolor

The plant growth promoting bacteria can ameliorate the abiotic stressors through induced systemic tolerance in associated plants. The present work reports the efficiency of a plant growth promoting

Allelopathy: a natural way towards weed management.

The objective of this article is to review the possibilities for using allelopathy to improve overall potentiality of weeds and crops in natural weed management and to discard use of synthetic herbicides completely.

Production of Iridoids and Phenolics by Transformed Harpagophytum procumbens Root Cultures

The present report is the first one dealing with the investigation of transformed root cultures from Harpagophytum procumbens plants, which possessed relatively high DPPH‐radical scavenging properties and no antiradical activity was detected.

Constituents of the root exudate of Avena fatua grown under far-infrared-enriched light.

The constituents of the root exudate of plantlets of wild oats (Avena fatua) grown in the greenhouse under far-IR-enriched radiation were analysed for the first time by HPTLC and capillary GC, and
