What is it about?
The present study was conducted to isolate and characterize rock PSB associated with the rhizosphere of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) from fourteen different wheat-growing sites of the Meknes region in Morocco. Five strains were selected for their strong ability to dissolve RP and were tested in vitro for plant growth-promoting (PGP) traits including the production of indole acetic acid (IAA), siderophores, hydrogen cyanide (HCN), and antifungal activity, as well as their response to the effect of extrinsic and intrinsic stress.

Why is it important?
Our study clearly indicates that our selected rock PSBs can be used as biofertilizers for grain crops after studying their interaction with the host crop and field evaluation.
