Plant nutrition is essential to understand any physiological process in plant biology, as well as to improve crops, and agricultural practices. The root microbiome plays an important role in plant nutrition. The best characterized microbiome elements are two plant endosymbionts: arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and rhizobia. AMF are responsible for delivering most of the mineral nutrients requir ...
