Characterization of the Activities of Plant Growth Promoting Streptomyces in the Rhizosphere Grant uri icon



  • Rhizosphere-colonizing bacteria help plants obtain mineral nutrients from soil, and they promote plant growth by excreting a variety of beneficial metabolites within the rhizosphere. Rhizosphere-colonizing Streptomyces, a group within the filamentous actinomycetes,will be studied for their roles in supplying mineral nutrients and other protective and growth promoting metabolites to plants.
