A total of 560 bacterial isolates from four rhizosphere and eight non-rhizosphere soils were examined for resistance to 7 antibiotics. There were marked differences between the overall levels of antibiotic resistance found in the different soils. The rhizosphere populations were not consistently more antibiotic resistant than their corresponding non-rhizosphere soils.
