Teaming With Bacteria
Teaming with Bacteria: The Organic Gardener's Guide to Endophytic Bacteria and the Rhizophagy Cycle
Written by Jeff Lowenfels
Hardcover: 172 pages
Just as Teaming with Microbes introduced readers to the soil food web, Teaming with Bacteria will introduce the latest research on endophytic bacteria and rhizophagy — discoveries that have profound implications for the practices of home gardeners and small-scale growers. In Teaming with Microbes, Jeff Lowenfels revealed the fascinating facts around the soil food web, all the tiny organisms that live in soil and aid a plant's growth. In Teaming with Nutrients, he explored how those organisms aid in the uptake of nutrients. And in Teaming with Fungi, he detailed the symbiotic relationship between plants and fungi — the most important organism living in the soil.
In his new book Teaming with Bacteria, Lowenfels digs into the new science behind how endophytic bacteria supply nutrients to a large array of plants and explains, in accessible language, how this information applies to home gardeners, small-scale farmers, and cannabis growers. Based on cutting-edge science that will help gardeners increase plant health and productivity, Teaming with Bacteria is a must-have addition to every organic gardener's library.
