Intercropping could be an alternative to traditional monocropping, capable of optimizingyield reducing the fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides application promoting changes onsoil bacterial community which could contribute to soil health. To study these changes, asoil properties and bacterial community through 16S gene amplification was performed.The results showed how soil properties and bacterial community changed under thedifferent cropping systems showing and increase of TOC, TN, and P in the intercroppingsystem, in addition, some genus like Pseudomonas or Bacillus, were significantly increasedin intercropping system as well, so they could have contributed to this higher availabilityof P on soils. On the other hand, LEfSe revealed some biomarkers drought-resistant in Mwhich could be due to worse conditions of water where monocrop was made. In this sense,long-term intercropping system could favor to soils quality.
