Plant endophyte - microbewiki
Plant endophyte - MicrobeWiki. Fungi, bacteria and various kinds of microorganism are found as endophytes. Some of the endophytes are proved to be able to enhance plant growth by nitrogen fixation, increase resistant against pathogens, remove contaminants and solubilize phosphate. Endophytic bacteria, along with rhizospheric bacteria contribute to plant growth. Endophytic fungi can be found within the leaves and stems of plants, with remarkable diversity. Recent work has proved that significa
Nitrogen Fixation - Texas A&M AgriLife Research & Extension Center at Overton
Nitrogen is the most limiting nutrient for plant growth. A legume plant’s ability to use nitrogen from the air is the best known benefit of growing legumes but the least understood. Approximately 79% of the air is nitrogen gas. However, it is not in a form that plants can use.
