Adhesion of Rhizosphere Bacteria to Roots of Maize and Wheat
Several bacterial strains were isolated from the rhizosphere of important agronomical crops and classified in the genera Enterobacter, Pseudomonas, Azospirillum, Azotobacter and Bacillus on the basis of their morphological and biochemical characters. Investigations on the efficiency of colonization and adhesion of these bacteria to roots of maize and wheat by scanning electron microscopy have been carried out.
