It takes three to tango: the importance of microbes, host plant, and soil management to elucidate manipulation strategies for the plant microbiome


This review article covers the manipulation of the plant microbiome to improve sustainability of agroecosystems. Strategies are classed into three main pillars: (i) introducing and engineering microbiomes, (ii) breeding and engineering the host plant, and (iii) selecting agricultural practices that enhance resident soil and plant-associated microbial communities. The authors explore current trends in research, knowledge gaps, and propose future research and perspectives.
