pH value is the unit of measure expressing the acidity or alkalinity of any solution. The pH value of the solutions varies between 0 and 14. Between 0 – 7 means acidic, between 7 and 14 means basic solution, 7 is neutral.
What is the Rhizosphere
Plant root tips secrete organic and inorganic compounds in order to change the pH of the root environment (Rhizosphere) and to ensure the smooth advancement of the root. These secretions enable microorganisms in the rhizosphere to develop and become stronger.
Microorganisms found in Rhizosphere;
- Development, morphology and physiology of the roots.
- The physiology and development of plants.
- The nutritional elements become useful.
- They affect the uptake mechanism of nutrients.
