Background and aims
Salt stress is an increasing problem in agricultural soils in many parts of the world, and salt tolerant cropping systems are in great demand. We investigated the effect of co-inoculation of Galega officinalis with Rhizobium galegae and two plant growth promoting Pseudomonas species on plant growth, nodulation, and N content under salt stress.
The effect of inoculation with R. galegae sv. officinalis HAMBI 1141 alone and in combination with the root-colonizing Pseudomonas extremorientalis TSAU20 or Pseudomonas trivialis 3Re27 on the growth of G. officinalis exposed to salt stress (50 and 75 mM NaCl) was studied under gnotobiotic and greenhouse conditions.
The growth of goat’s rue was reduced at 50 and 75 mM NaCl both in the gnotobiotic sand system and in low-fertilized …
