[ID: 469] Endophytic plant growth-promoting bacteria isolated from Scots pine needles

PI: Tinkara Bizjak

The main aim of the study is to examine if isolated nitrogen-fixing bacteria from Scots pine needles possess plant growth-promoting properties such as phosphorus and zinc solubilization, siderophore production, HCN production, IAA production and protease and cellulase activity. Additionally, to test if the isolated bacteria showing plant growth-promoting properties in in vitro assays, are able to promote the growth of important agricultural crops such as cucumber, kale, tomato and corn in in vivo study using non-sterile soil.
