Microbiome-Leveraged Organic Herbicide
Invention Summary: At present, all herbicides are deleterious to human health. There is an unmet need to develop herbicides that are not harmful to people. Ethylene is a microbe-produced hormone that stimulates plant cell growth. However, in excess, ethylene causes stress in plants due to overproduction of superoxide, a highly potent form of reactive...

Novel Biofertilizer for Improving Plant Growth and Tolerance to Stress
Improved tomato root biomass after 21 days of salinity test Invention Summary: Rutgers University scientists have identified two new bacterial strains that can express 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate (ACC) deaminase, and a plant growth hormone. Its efficacy has been tested to benefit maize, tomato, and creeping bentgrass, a type of turfgrass....

New Class of Biofertilizer Promoting Growth and Stress Tolerance
Invention Summary: Rutgers scientists have identified ACC-deaminase-producing bacterial strains that have advantageous effects on overall plant growth, in particular, turfgrass. Plants infected with ACC-deaminase-producing bacteria are exposed to less ethylene, and thus exhibit better overall growth. Indeed, plants inoculated with these bacteria...

Growth Promoting Properties of Newly Identified Root Fungi A. panicicola for Agricultural Applications
Invention Summary: Rutgers scientists identified a new root endophytic fungal species, Acidomelania panicicola, which significantly increases growth and stress tolerance of different plant species. A. panicicola was identified from switchgrass and other grass roots from the New Jersey Pine Barrens, where the soil content is nutrient poor, acidic,...
