Manipulating the soil microbiome to increase plant health and productivity
MetadataShow full item record
Rhizosphere microbial communities offer immense benefits to plants. The rhizomicrobiome has the ability to help combat numerous biotic and abiotic stresses as well as increase plant health and productivity. In a world where the population keeps increasing at an alarming rate while food is scarce, new alternatives to feed the growing population need to be identified. The answer lies in harnessing and exploiting the beneficial interactions between plants and their rhizosphere microbiome to increase plant health and productivity. An understanding of the mechanisms that govern such interactions is ...
