Pili, N.N., et al., 2016. Analysis of fungal endophytes associated with rice roots from irrigated and upland ecosystems in Kenya. Plant and Soil, 405, p.371–380.
Fungal endophytes are commonly associated with plants, and are considered an important component of crop production. They can influence plant growth and tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses. The aim of this study was to analyse and identify endophytic fungi associated with rice roots in irrigated and upland ecosystems in Kenya, as an inventory for a future search for biological control and growth promoting agents.
