Plant – Bacteria Interaction
Plant – Bacteria interaction:
Use of Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria (PGPB) for agriculture and environment
The research line’s objective is the development of novel inoculants for the management and release of plant growth-promoting bacteria (PGPB) with agriculture and environmental purposes, such as bioremediation and restoration of degraded soils.
- Bioprospection of novel PGPB from extreme environments.
- Search of new materials as carriers to immobilize microorganisms.
- Development of multispecific inoculants for purposes such as solubilization and mineralization of phosphate.
- Monitoring of the use of single and mixed inoculants on plant growth and productivity, soil physicochemical characteristics, soil biogeochemical cycles, and rhizosphere microbiome structure and function.
