Glomus intraradices mychorizae , bacillus subtilis, Trichoderma harzianum, Bacillus pumilus, Bacillus licheniformis, Bacilius megaterium
Bacillus subtilis exhibits both a direct and indirect biocontrol mechanism to suppress disease caused by pathogens. ... Bacillus subtilis can also solubilize soil P, enhance nitrogen fixation, and produce siderophores that promote its growth and suppresses the growth of pathogens.
Bacillus pumilus inoculation may enhance plant micronutrient uptake by increasing micronutrient availability in the soil–plant system through soil acidification . The responsible mechanism is PGPB-induced production of organic acids into the soil
Bacillus licheniformis is a ubiquitous, saprophytic, common soil bacteria that contributes to nutrient cycling and displays antifungal activity.
Bacilius megaterium is a good source of industrial proteins because it is both a desirable cloning host and produces a large variation of enzymes.
Trichoderma harzianum is an effective biocontrol agent against several fungal soilborne plant pathogens.
