The Effect of Soil Inoculation with Microbial Pesticide Destructors on Plant Growth and Development

Soil inoculation with liquid cultures of Bacillus megaterium 501 and Exophiala nigrum A-29 capable of degrading several organophosphorus pesticides accelerated the growth and development of experimental plants, the formation of their generative organs, and improved their productivity. This was particularly observed under stress plant growth conditions on phytotoxic peach substrates. The microorganisms inoculated can probably degrade the phytotoxins present in soils, thereby favoring plant development.
