Phosphorous movilization in strawberry plants by a strain of mesorhizobium mediterraneum which nodulates cicer arietinum 1345589

  • Phosphorous is, after nitrogen, the secondmost important element in plant nutrition

  • In many plants of agronomic interest, phosphorous is a key a key factor in fruit properties and precocity, which is very important under a commercial point of view

  • only 0.1% of the total phosphorous from soil is available to plants

  • Among Plant Growth-Promoting Rhizobacteria, there are some strains which mode of action is based on solubilization of insoluble phosphates and mobilization of P in soil-plant interface

  • Among Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria, the most powerful strains are included in diverse taxonomic groups, as Gram negative Proteobacteria (pseudomonads and rhizobia) and Gram positive bacteria of low G+C content (Bacillus).

  • Some strains of rhizobia and other related genera, besides their potential to nodulate legumes and fix atmospheric nitrogen, can solubilize phosphates and mobilize P to plants

The strain PECA21 is able to nodulate, fix nitrogen and movilize phosphorous to Cicer arietinum

  • Identification

  • Stable Low Molecular Weight (LMW) RNA profiles obtained by Staircase Electrophoresis

  • LMW RNA profiles

LMW RNA profiles of type strains from Mesorhizobium nodulating Cicer arietinum and PECA21:

Carril (2) M. mediterraneum USDA 3392T

Carril (3) PECA21

  • CONCLUSIONS

  • LMW RNA profiles obtained by Staircase electrophoresis allow the identification of phosphate solubilizing bacteria belonging to very diverse taxonomic groups. In our case strain PECA21 isolated from chickpea was identified as Mesorhizobium mediterraneum

  • In strawberry plants inoculated with strain Mesorhizobium mediterraneum PECA21 added with phosphate, phosphorous mobilization in plant-soil interface was observed, increasing significantly their P content.

  • Strawberry plants inoculated with strain Mesorhizobium mediterraneum PECA21 added with phosphate yielded fruit production higher than twice the quantity compared to control plants, and therefore this strains behaves as a good PGPR, showing potential as microbial inoculant for strawberry in the future.
