Faced with climate change, the search for sustainable solutions is increasingly necessary to reduce the impacts caused on agricultural production. Beans are of great importance for food security and one of the limitations in terms of productivity is water stress. With irregular distributions and scarcity scenarios increasingly present, it is necessary to seek sustainable alternatives to reduce the impacts of the water deficit. In this sense, microorganisms establish important symbiotic relationships with the root systems of plants. Among them, Bacillus aryabhattai has shown great ability to reduce the symptoms of lack of water. Thus, the objective of this project is to evaluate the biochemical and physiological effects of Bacillus aryabhattai inoculation in the common bean crop under conditions of water deficit. Present to evaluate physiological and biochemical aspects of common bean. In addition, this project is linked to SDG 2, SDG 13, SDG 15 and SDG 17. In addition, the project is linked to the Aqua-Bio NETWORK, which aims to investigate the use of bioinput in the management of water deficit.
