Plant-growth-promoting bacteria isolated from the rhizosphere andphyllosphere were analysed for their colonization and growth-promoting effectson winter wheat and pea at different temperatures. The investigations werecarried out in pot experiments using loamy sand in Germany. The colonization ofstrains Cellulomonas sp. 21/2 andCellulomonas sp. 43 in the rhizosphere of winter wheat andpea were much better at 16 °C than that at 26°C. The inoculation with effective bacterial strainssignificantly increased the root and shoot growth of winter wheat and pea at 16more than at 26 °C. Bacterial inoculation also resulted insignificantly higher amount of N, P, and K contents of plant components.
