However, successful use of beneficial microorganisms in bio-economy presupposes elucidation and understanding of microbial behavior in various environmental niches. Our bilateral project between Germany (IGZ, Großbeeren) and Chile (University of Talca, Bio Insumos Nativa) aims to study mechanisms of plant-microbe interaction using the example of the plant growth-promoting bacteria Kosakonia radicincitans and the fungal isolate Talaromyces amestolkiae cepa 21 in interaction with various horticultural plants. In cooperation with our Chilean partners we investigate the microbial mechanisms affecting plant growth under different nitrogen- and phosphor nutrition regimens, salinity stress, or under natural occurring soil conditions in the southern and northern hemisphere.
