Research Location UPLB
Research Description The project will collect rhizosphere soil and root samples of healthy plants thriving in mine tailing sites in Itogon, Benguet where, mycorrhizal fungi and nitrogen fixing bacteria will be isolated, cultivated in aseptic culture, screened for their effectiveness in promoting plant growth in mine tailing soil collected from Itogon, Benguet. The experiments will be conducted under screenhouse and field conditions with or without compost. The isolated microbes will aslo be screened for their heavy metals degrading capabilities. The plant growth promoting capabilities of the new isolates will be compared with those by MYCOVAM and BIO-N (with nitrogen fixing bacteria).
