What is it about?
Crop response to manganese (Mn) application is often erratic in the alkaline and calcareous soils due to its strong immobilization by chemical and microbial oxidation processes. Microbial redox reactions considerably affect soil Mn bioavailability and plant growth through sorption and desorption processes. Exploring the mechanisms of Mn-oxidizing (MnOB) and Mn-reducing bacteria (MnRB) in conjunction with mineral fertilizers could be an eloquent approach for enhancing nutrient availability to plant in calcareous soil.

Why is it important?
To understand the mechanisms of Mn bioavailability via microbial redox cycling and to evaluate the effectiveness of Leptothrix discophora (MnOB) and Bacillus polymyxa (MnRB) inoculation together with mineral fertilizers (NPK) on wheat yield and soil nutrient bioavailability in a calcareous soil.
