Compositions and Methods for Improving Rice Growth Resistance to blast and Restricting Arsenic Uptake

Impacts addressed

This invention relates to the use of microbes isolated from a rhizosphere of rice to provide anti pathogenic effect on rice plants improve biomass and growth and restrict arsenic uptake by rice plants.


Administering one or more of rice rhizosphere isolates to a rice plant seed or to its surrounding soil inhibits: blast infection increases biomass of the plant and decreases arsenic uptake by the plant
