The purpose of this study was to evaluate the structure of bacterial communities at two agricultural fields in Brazil (Paraná (PR) and Bahia (BA) states) with a history of high and low productivity of soybean. 16S rRNA gene amplicons revealed that plots with low yield of grains showed greater bacterial richness than plots with high yield. The phylum Acidobacteria was more abundant in soil samples from PR site. The rhizosphere of plants presented a similar bacterial community for both high and low yield plots. Soil samples from BA showed differences in the diversity between the plots with high and low productivity. The use of 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing allowed the assessment of differences between plots with different soybean yields. This might be useful in the future to harness plant microbiomes for increased crop productivity.
