Abstract This paper reviews current knowledge of the production of organic acids by immobilized microorganisms with a simultaneous solubilization of rock phosphate in fermentation and soil conditions. The most widely applied methods are based on the passive immobilization in preformed porous carriers and entrapment of the microbial cells in natural gels. In general, immobilized systems show higher acid producing and rock phosphate solubilizing activity than freely suspended cells. The potential of gel-entrapped P-solubilizers and mycorrhizal fungi as microbial soil inoculants is also pointed out. Some advantages and constraints of using immobilized cells are discussed and a special emphasis on further research is given.
