Plant growth promoting bacteria
Plant growth promoter bacteria with biofertilizing capacity and pathogen control help plants cope with stressful situations.
Origin of plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB)
What are PGPB?
They are the comunity of soil bacteria that competitively colonize plant root system, promote plant growth and diminish disease incidence.
PGPB interaction with plants
How do PGPB work?
Action mechanisms of PGPB include the stimulation of root growth, biofertilization and the enhancement of plant stress tolerance. PGPB may amplify or suppress plant stress signalling to improve water saving in agriculture.
The way they help plants
What benefits can I obtain using PGPB?
Among these benefits are the ability to solubilize phosphate and to produce siderophores and plant hormones. One of the strategies devised to exploit AMF benefits is represented by the inoculation of selected isolates, either as single species or in a mixture.
The PBPB species produced in Atens
How are they produced?
PGPB in Atens products are produced naturaly in the in vivo system of arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) production. In brief, using Illumina high-throughput sequencing we have identified 276 bacterial genera belonging to 165 families, 107 orders, and 23 phyla, mostly represented by Proteobacteria and Bacteroidetes. The commercial inoculum harbored a rich culturable heterotrophic bacterial community.
