Root Microecology

Root microbes

Root microbes refer to microbes that grow and reproduce within a few millimeters of soil directly affected by plant roots. There are bacteria, actinomycetes, fungi, algae and protozoa. They interact with plant roots and plants to form a mutualistic relationship. Root microbes are mainly bacteria, and Gram-negative bacteria are dominant.

Most root microbes are harmless to plants and have a promoting effect on plant growth. The metabolites produced during the proliferation of root microbes increase the absorption of phosphorus and other mineral elements by plants. In addition, the growth-stimulating hormones they secrete can also promote plant growth. Plants also secrete substances that inhibit the growth of microbes. Some root microbes secrete antibiotics, which can inhibit the reproduction of plant pathogens.
