    Abstract: Phosphate-solubilizing bacteria can enhance the dissolution of insoluble phosphorus in the soil, promoting the availability of soluble phosphorus. Thus, their application can reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and ease sustainable agriculture. The study aimed at isolating and assessing the phosphate solubilizing activity of peanut rhizobia isol... Show More

    Abstract: Amylases are enzymes produced by a wide range of organisms. The applications of these biomolecules cut across different industries such as detergent, brewing and food industries. Aspergillus flavus has been well documented as one the microbes capable of degrading starch-based agricultural waste materials. This study aimed at optimizing and characte... Show More
