Phosphate solubilising bacteria produce organic acids and enzymes that help in the solubilisation of insoluble phosphates into plant utilizable form. They also produce phytohormones like Indole acetic acid and gibberellins, which promote plant growth and yield. By improving the organic content and microbial population of the soil, Phosphobacteria improves the plant health.
