Understanding and engineering beneficial plant–microbe interactions: plant growth promotion in energy crops

  title={Understanding and engineering beneficial plant–microbe interactions: plant growth promotion in energy crops},
  author={Kerrie Farrar and David Bryant and Naomi Cope-Selby},
  booktitle={Plant biotechnology journal},
Plant production systems globally must be optimized to produce stable high yields from limited land under changing and variable climates. Demands for food, animal feed, and feedstocks for bioenergy and biorefining applications, are increasing with population growth, urbanization and affluence. Low-input, sustainable, alternatives to petrochemical-derived fertilizers and pesticides are required to reduce input costs and maintain or increase yields, with potential biological solutions having an… CONTINUE READING
