Edgar Omar Rueda Puente



He graduated in 1988 in the areas of chemical and Biological Physics and Mathematics- Career Technical Agricultural Sciences at the Center for Agricultural Technology School No. 47 in León Guzman, Durango. Agronomist Parasitologist at the Universidad Autonoma Agraria "Antonio Narro" in Saltillo, Coahuila; passing the exam with congratulatory letter for the title of Agronomist Parasitologist in April 1993; with the thesis entitled "Current Status of Golden Potato Nematode (Globodera rostochiensis) in the city of Saltillo, Coahuila. Master of Science specializing in Agricultural Parasitology at the Universidad Autonoma Agraria "Antonio Narro". The research developed was focused on the "production of an antibody (antiserum) against phytopathogenic bacteria of quarantine importance Acidovorax avenae pv. citrulli in the Laguna Region "disease that causes greasy stain on the cultivation of watermelon. Doctor of Science (PhD)-in Interaction Plant-Microorganism at the Biological Research Center of Northwest (CIBNOR), S.C. in La Paz, Baja California Sur, developing a research study related to the production of plants tolerant to salinity of agroindustrial interest  with the interaction of plant growth promoting bacteria and presenting productive potential to be involved and exploited in the agricultural sector with salinization problems. For the development and success of these new salinity tolerant crops, nitrogen applications are required. However, due to the problems of salinization chemical fertilizers in arid-saline areas, these should not be applied in areas with salinity problems, so another objective of the research conducted was to isolate, characterize and publicize microorganisms such as bacteria Promotoras plant growth. Study which resulted in the first isolation of Klebsiella pneumoniae as a future bio-fertilizer in the production of halophytes such as Salicornia bigelovii.

Research Interest

• Interaction plant microorganisms under saline arid environments

• Halophytes with agribusiness and reforestation interest by using seawater and brackish.

• Parasitology associated with agricultural crops in arid and halophytes

• Formulation of polyclonal for detection of pests of quarantine interest-organisms in agricultural crops antisera.
