Cover for Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR): mechanism, role in crop improvement and sustainable agriculture.

Diverse genera of bacteria have been recognised as PGPRs, some symbiotic (Rhizobium, Bradyrhizobium, Mesorhizobium), others non-symbiotic (Pseudomonas, Bacillus, Klebsiella, Azotobacter, Azospirillum, Azomonas). These rhizobacteria are now being used worldwide as bio-inoculants to promote plant...
