Collection description

Novel eco-sustainable approaches employed for plant protection and growth promotion involve the use of microbial inoculants. Beneficial microbes play also an important role as primary source of secondary metabolites for drug discovery and application in both medical and agricultural fields. Omics studies can help to understand the mechanisms of microbial interactions and can guide the selection of active principles (microbes and/or bioactive metabolites) for new bio-formulates. A metabolomic approach has been used to investigate the compatibility of different beneficial strains (i.e., Trichoderma, Streptomyces, Azotobacter). Therefore the selected combinations have been tested on different crops of agricultural importance (parsley, basil, olive drupes), in order to evaluate the effect of these combinations on yield, growth, pathogens biocontrol and nutritional value. Moreover, the metal chelating properties of harzianic acid (a known Trichoderma bioactive compound) have been evaluated in order to discover new possible applications in soil remediation and/or as biostimulant.
