The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB) inoculation in Zuri guinea grass {[}Megathyrsus (syn. Panicum) maximus] on shoot dry weight (SDW) and root dry weight (RDW) yield, morphological compositions, number of tillers, and nutrients concentrations in SDW. The experiment was carried out under greenhouse conditions in a randomized block design consisting of eight treatments with five replicates. The inoculation with the Ab-V5 and Ab-V6 strains of Azospirillum brasilense and Pseudomonas fluorescens or co-inoculation with Rhizobium tropici and Ab-V6, with nitrogen (N) fertilization, as well as re-inoculations of the plants after cuttings were taken were evaluated. The plant growth-promoting bacteria and N fertilization promoted increases in SDW and RDW yield, tillers dry weight, relative chlorophyll index (RCI) and nutrients uptake in shoots of Zuri guinea grass. There were effects of re-inoculation the PGPB by P. fluorescens in shoots, N, magnesium (Mg) and boron (B) concentration in SDW. (AU)
