Chapter 5 (Page no: 75)

Role of plant growth-promoting microorganisms in sustainable agriculture and environmental remediation.

This chapter discusses the role of plant growth-promoting bacteria (PGPR) and fungi (PGPF) in sustainable agriculture; importance of PGPR and PGPF in phyto/bioremediation; role of PGPR and PGPF in biomass and biofuel production; role of PGPR and PGPF in wasteland and degraded land reclamation; role of plant growth-promoting microorganisms in carbon sequestration under warming climate; and strategies for enhancing the performance of plant growth-promoting microorganisms.
