The effects of freshwater and marine purple non-sulfur photosynthetic bacteria (PNSB) on plant growth were compared. The PNSB cells were applied to radish plants (Raphanus sativus var. sativus) for 20 days using foliar spray and it was observed that the freshwater PNSB, Rhodobacter sphaeroides, significantly promoted the growth of radish, whereas the marine PNSB, Rhodovulum sp. OKHT16, displayed no promotive effects on plant growth.
