Probiotic Consortia Applications In Non-Sterile Soil

Plants feed microbial communities that, in return, provide the plant with growth hormones and antibiotics. Alexandre Jousset’s research focuses on probiotics consortia in tomato plant roots that form a shield defending plant tissues from Ralstonia solanacearum (Wei et al., 2015). This is an aerobic non-spore forming plant pathogenic bacterium colonising the xylem and causing bacterial wilt in its host. It can affect most world crop species including tomato, potato, banana and tobacco and there’s still no cure for this disease (Hu et al., 2016).

Where our food really comes from

The question of where our food comes from is a refrain heard frequently these days. It is a very good one to ask, but it goes far beyond knowing where the nearest farm-to-table restaurant or CSA pick-up location is. To truly know where one’s food comes from, one needs to have an appreciation of the origin of agriculture. The plants growing in our fields today did not spring fully formed from some primordial ooze but are rather the result of natural and human forces over the course of millennia.
