Belgium: research on bacteria that stimulate plant-growth

In Belgium, scientists of the the Flanders Research Institute for agriculture, fisheries and food (ILVO) have found bacteria that have both a strong relationship with maize and stimulate plant-growth under cold circumstances. They hope that in future by treating seeds with these bacteria before planting, they can improve sprouting in the spring, when the weather is still quite cold and to help accelerate early growth and diminish sensitivity to disease.
