Evaluation of Plant Promotion Growth Promotion and Antifungal effects through the application of the novel strains KGS-2 and KGS-3

This project will investigate the use of novel bacterial strains as inoculants for agricultural crops that will promote plant growth. It has been demonstrated, in a previous MITACS funded project, that the application of the novel KGS strains of bacteria to plants in a greenhouse will promote the growth of the plants. This current project will seek to demonstrate the same effect in field trials. In addition, this project will also isolate and identify the natural products produced by these strains to determine the molecules responsible for the observed effect.
