Microbial Consortia
 

Several researchers at CINVESTAV- Irapuato are focused on studying microbial consortia- communities of microorganisms that together affect plant growth or improve a desired plant trait. Identification of such communities will allow producers to selectively treat seeds or plants based on desired characteristics, thereby maximizing productivity and profitability.

Dra. Laila Pamela Partida Martínez – Dra. Partida’s research focuses on the study of microbial consortia, particularly for the plants agave and cacti. Such consortia could be useful as seed or foliar treatments for disease control, plant health, and plant growth. (Link to information sheet)
