Tea yellow disease is one of the common diseases in the growth of tea plants, which seriously affects the yield and quality of tea. In recent years, more and more studies have shown that probiotics play an important role in plant health and disease resistance. The purpose of this study was to investigate the interaction between tea root probiotics and tea yellowing, and to evaluate the application potential of probiotics in the prevention and treatment of tea yellowing. Research indicates that probiotics can establish symbiotic relationship with the root of tea tree, enhance the resistance of tea tree, and reduce the occurrence and development of tea yellow disease. Probiotics activate the immune system by regulating the expression of tea tree genes and improve the resistance of tea tree to pathogens. In addition, the active substances produced by probiotics also have antibacterial and plant growth regulation functions, and have an inhibitory effect on the pathogenic bacteria of tea yellow disease. The results of this study provide a sustainable and environmentally friendly biological control strategy for the control of tea yellow disease, and demonstrate the application prospect of probiotics in the control of tea yellow disease.
