Endophytic Actinobacteria: Beneficial Partners for Sustainable Agriculture

Ricardo Pinto Araujo, Onuma Kaewkla, Christopher Franco

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Endophytic actinobacteria have been proven to be effective partners that have beneficial functions with a number of crop plants. A large number of studies have been carried out, showing these positive effects in laboratories and glasshouses, but with fewer reports of their effectiveness in the field. This chapter highlights the results of field trials of actinobacterial endophytes conducted with cereals, vegetables such as tomato, cucumber, or cabbage, legumes such as chickpeas or pea, fruits such as melon or grapes, peanuts, and woody plants.
