Scholarcy highlights

  • The rhizosphere microbiome, which includes the totality of microorganisms, their genomes, and interactions in the rhizosphere has been the focus of several studies in recent times
  • It was checked if there was a significant difference in the beta diversity, which indicates the diversity of the functional genes responsible for plant growth in the sunflower rhizosphere compared to the bulk soils
  • Guo et al and Cui et al report that plant selects microorganisms and as a result, diversity of the microbial community is usually low in the rhizosphere when compared to the bulk soils. β-diversity of the microbiome for the two habitats was estimated using canonical correspondence analysis based on Bray-Curtis dissimilarity matrix
  • The outcomes from this research suggest that sunflower would thrive in both locations because, compositionally, the microbial diversity was not significant in the two locations, there was a difference in the microbial structure of both R1 and
  • There was no significant difference in the genes responsible for plant growth in the sunflower rhizosphere microbiome in comparison to the bulk soils; likewise, there was no significant difference between the two locations
  • For most of our identified genes, the location R1 possessed more enriched genes for potential plant growth than the location R2
