Probiotic Consortia Applications In Non-Sterile Soil

Plants feed microbial communities that, in return, provide the plant with growth hormones and antibiotics.

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).
