Journal name: African Journal of Biotechnology

Description:
 Abstract Three beneficial bacterial strains [Gluconoacetobacter diazotrophicus (Pal5), the 
diazotrophs (11B) and Pachaz (008)] and an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus [Glomus 
intraradices (AMF)] were evaluated for their ability to enhance plant growth and the 
production of hydrolytic enzymes in micropropagated Agave tequilana Weber var. Blue. 
Results show that the growth of the agave plants and the production of hydrolytic enzymes in 
their roots were influenced by the presence of these microorganisms. AMF+ 11B treatment ...
