Abstract

The study of the effect of the root exometabolites of tomato plants on the growth and antifungal activity of plant growth–promoting Pseudomonas strains showed that the antifungal activity of plant growth–promoting rhizobacteria in the plant rhizosphere may depend on the sugar and organic acid composition of root exudates.
