Mean followed by the same letter in a column is not significantly different (Tukey, ).
All plants were fertilized with the recommended commercial dose of 0.75 g L−1 of NO3 : P2O5 : K2O (15 : 05 : 25), calcium nitrate (100 mg L−1), micronutrients (60 mg L−1), and molybdenum (0.05 mL L−1).
MIX: plants simultaneously inoculated with strains FCA-8, FCA-56, and FCA-60 of P. putida.
