Microbe Plant Interactions in Nature

Microbe Plant Interactions Microbe plant interactions are an ongoing, every changing encounter. This is a microscopic, symbiotic relationship unseen by the naked eye. Here’s a great quote from Nature the international weekly journal of science.   Plant—microbe encounters can be friendly or hostile. Densely colonized soil contains beneficial mycorrhizal fungi and rhizobia, which associate with…

Soil Microbes and Nutrient Recycling

Soil Microbes and Nutrient Recycling Nutrient recycling in soil is generally performed by microorganisms. Both beneficial soil fungi and beneficial soil bacteria are the main players. Soil microbes will exist in extremely large numbers in soils as long as a carbon source exists for energy. Interestingly, in undisturbed soils fungi tend to dominate the soil…

Bacillus Subtilis Plant Growth Promoter

Bacillus Subtilis Plant Growth Promoter   Bacillus subtilis plant growth promoter is a phrase that we’ll discuss in this post. It is well known that number of beneficial soil microorganisms, like Bacillus subtilis, act as plant growth promoters, also called synergistic plant promotion or biofertilizers. B. subtilis produces plant hormones and solubilizes insoluble forms of phosphates. This makes…

Bio Soil for Plants. Biofertilizers for Plants.

Bio Soil for Plants Bio Soil refers to the idea that the soil is alive with biological activity, living soil. Bio soils are in fact biological organisms, like beneficial soil bacteria or beneficial soil Trichoderma. Bacillus megaterium and B. subtilis are bacteria that are useful for plants. Bacteria for plants can be either beneficial for the plant…
