The present project relates to the development of a broad spectrum herbicide based on microorganisms, especially Streptomyces, as a source of phytotoxic compounds. The use of phytotoxins produced by Streptomyces as new biotechnological bioherbicides would be a potential application in agriculture, since there is an urgent need of developing of new pesticides due to weed resistance to cu...
Brazil is one of the major agriculture producers in the world and imports 7 % (a deficit of U$ 700 million) of phosphate rock to supply the low phosphate quality and the agriculture growth. A further limitation is the reduced water viability to irrigation practice and investment needed on northern region, which suffer from water scarcity and soil salinization. The use of microorganisms ...
Riparian forests have suffered major reductions in Brazil, and very few studies have focused on indicators of soil quality in these environments. These changes may affect the microbial biomass influence on nutrient cycling process, the physical characteristics and also the diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and soil fauna. The AMF are important for maintaining a healthy soi...
