MARTINEZ, O. A; CROWLEY, D. E; MORA, M. L  y  JORQUERA, M. A. Short-term study shows that phytate-mineralizing rhizobacteria inoculation affects the biomass, phosphorus (P) uptake and rhizosphere properties of cereal plants. J. Soil Sci. Plant Nutr. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.1, pp.153-166.  Epub 24-Feb-2014. ISSN 0718-9516.

Cereal production in southern Chile is based on volcanic soils (Andisol) that are phosphorus (P) deficient for plant nutrition. Phytate-mineralizing rhizobacteria (PMR) have been suggested as soil inoculants to improve P uptake and growth of plants cultivated in P-deficient soils. In this study, a greenhouse experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of inoculation with PMR (Bacillus sp. N1-19NA, Enterobacter sp. N0-29PA, Pseudomonas sp.N1-55PA and Serratia sp. N0-10LB) on biomass and P uptake of cereal plants (wheat, oat and barley) grown in a Chilean Andisol with out P fertilization. Results showed that inoculation with Enterobacter sp. N0-29PA significantly (P≤0.05) increased the biomass and Puptake of oat plants.Changes in rhizosphere properties as soil enzyme activities (acid phosphatase and urease), and auxin production potential were also produced by Enterobacter sp. N0-29PA inoculation. Despite the possible value, Enterobacter sp. N0-29PA as a soil inoculant for P-deficient soils, other PMR assayed did not consistently enhanced biomass and P uptake of plants. In addtion, polymerase chain reaction-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (PCR-DGGE) combined with non-metric multidimensional scaling (nMDS) analysis revealed that PMR inoculation induced changes in rhizobacterial community composition, suggesting that PMR application substantially modify the microbiological characteristics of rhizosphere. However, long-term studies at field level are still needed to practical use of PMR as inoculants in Chilean Andisols.
