Enhanced molecular visualization of root colonization and growth promotion by Bacillus subtilis EA-CB0575 in different growth systems
(Elsevier GmbH, 2018-01-01)
Bacillus subtilis EA-CB0575 is a plant growth-promoting bacterium (PGPB) associated with banana and tomato crops. Root colonization is an important trait for PGPB microorganisms and potentiates the bacterial effect related ...
Effective control of black Sigatoka disease using a microbial fungicide based on Bacillus subtilis EA-CB0015 culture
(Academic Press Inc., 2015-08-01)
Black Sigatoka disease caused by the fungus Mycosphaerella fijiensis Morelet is the most devastating disease of bananas worldwide. Its management is reliant on protectant and systemic fungicides despite their environmental ...
Bacillus subtilis EA-CB0575 genome reveals clues for plant growth promotion and potential for sustainable agriculture
Bacillus subtilis is a remarkably diverse bacterial species that displays many ecological functions. Given its genomic diversity, the strain Bacillus subtilis EA-CB0575, isolated from the rhizosphere of a banana plant, was ...
Bioprospecting of aerobic endospore-forming bacteria with biotechnological potential for growth promotion of banana plants
High amounts of agrochemicals are regularly used for increasing yields in cultivation of banana. The use of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) could represent an environmentally friendly alternative that can improve ...
Phylogenetic and pathogenic variability of strains of Ralstonia solanacearum causing moko disease in Colombia
(Blackwell Publishing Inc., 2020-02-01)
Moko disease, caused by the bacterium Ralstonia solanacearum, is one of the most devastating diseases of Musa spp. in Colombia, where banana and plantain are major crops. The disease epidemiology is poorly understood and ...
Multiple response optimization of Bacillus subtilis EA-CB0015 culture and identification of antifungal metabolites
(Elsevier Ltd, 2014-01-01)
The low yields of biomass and antimicrobial metabolites obtained in fermentation processes are limiting factors for implementing biological control agents in the field. In this context, optimization of the culture medium ...
