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...

Cover for Unravelling the dual applications of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Trichoderma</i> spp. as biopesticide and biofertilizer.

This chapter discusses Trichoderma biodiversity and potent isolate identification for applying as a biological control agent. The main modes of action of Trichoderma spp. are described, i.e. mycoparasitism of fungal pathogens with subsequent release of cell-wall-degrading enzymes such as...

Cover for Role of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) in degradation of xenobiotic compounds and allelochemicals.

This chapter discusses xenobiotic compounds and allelochemicals as major inhibitors of plant growth and productivity, and microbial degradation of xenobiotic compounds and allelochemicals. It is suggested that rhizospheric bacteria/PGPR not only help plant growth via classically defined mechanisms...

Cover for The rhizosphere microbial community and methods of its analysis.

This chapter summarizes some of the most common biochemical (culture-dependent) and molecular (culture-independent) methods used to study rhizospheric soil microbial communities. Although molecular methods have the benefit of obtaining information regarding non-culturable organisms, they also have...
