what does bacteria do for plants?



  1. 0 Votes

    Bacteria fix nitrogen into a usable form for the roots to uptake for the plant.  Nitrogen fixing bacteria take gaseous nitrogen and add hydrogens to it to get ammonia.  This only happens in the absence of oxygen.  Some bacteria live freely in the soil and others live in symbiosis with the plant.  The plant receives ammonia and the bacteria receive sugar from the plant.
