Unraveling Siderophore Producing Bacteria from Plant Rhizosphere

Siderophores are those low molecular weight iron chelating components that are found to be secreted by a few bacteria located predominantly in the rhizosphere of leguminous plants. Their mechanism of action depends on the structure in which the siderophore is available. In the current study, an isolate SA6 was studied for its siderophore production which…

Selection and Characterization of Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria Isolated from the Rhizosphere of Three Cultivated Legumes in Morocco

Phosphorus is the most important nutrient for the growth and development of plants. Phosphate-solubilizing bacteria (PSB) are known to influence plant growth by enhancing the availability of soluble P. This study aimed to isolate PSB from the rhizosphere of three cultivated legumes (fava bean, chickpea, and green peas) and evaluate their plant growth promotion (PGP)…

The Brazilian Caatinga Biome and Its Biotechnological Potential

The Caatinga biome is a unique Brazilian biome predominant in the Northeast of Brazil and situated in the Semiarid Region. The rhizosphere comprises the narrow zone of soil that is directly influenced by the roots of plants and associated soil microorganisms. It is a dynamic environment with maximum microbial activity due to the presence of…
