Asters are in the daisy family and while some flower in spring, most flower in late summer and autumn, hence their common name Michaelmas daisy. They are ideal for herbaceous borders and provide a welcome flash of colour when other flowers are starting to fade. They are also an important source of nectar and pollen for late-flying insects.

S ymphyotrichum novi-belgii ‘Algar’s Pride’ has large, single lavender-blue blooms and usually blooms late in the season. It’s a tall variety, best for the back of the border. For the best results, plant Symphyotrichum novi-belgii ‘Algar’s Pride’ in well-drained soil in a sheltered, partially shady site. Cut back hard after flowering.

Abstract

Nine plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria from different backgrounds were assayed on Glycine max var. Osumi to evaluate their potential as biotic elicitors to increase isoflavone (IF) levels. Strains were inoculated on 2 day old pregerminated seeds. Six days after inoculation, the seedlings were harvested. Biometric parameters were registered, and IFs were determined. Although only one strain (N21.4) increased total IF contents and only one (M84) caused significant decreases in total IF, five different behaviors were detected when the daidzein and genistein families were analyzed separately. All strains triggered IF metabolism so further studies have to be developed since the different beneficial effects of IF through the diet may be due to the different IF profiles. These are encouraging results from two points of view: (1) N21.4 increases IF in seedlings, and (2) all other beneficial strains trigger IF metabolism differentially; hence, both facts could be used to prepare food supplements or as enriched standardized foods after full development of the biotechnological procedure.
