Abstract Three beneficial bacterial strains [Gluconoacetobacter diazotrophicus (Pal5), thediazotrophs (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 ...
