    Abstract: Biosynthetic genes are responsible for antibiotic production by rhizobacterial antagonists. Detection of antibiotic biosynthetic genes of an antagonist is therefore important for the identification of genes and antibiotics responsible for disease suppression. The study was carried out to detect the antibiotic producing genes of eight rhizobacteria ... Show More

    Abstract: Cotton growers from Northern Cameroon use chemical fertilizers to improve soil fertility. However, the use of chemical fertilizers exhibits an immediate solution to decline of soil fertility problem, but its exclusive use causes an increase of soil degradation. With the aim of sustainably increasing of cotton growth in Cameroon, study was conducted... Show More
