The way forward for agriculture strongly relies on our skill to reinforce productiveness with out sacrificing long term creation strength. An ecologically and economically sustainable approach is the appliance of microorganisms, corresponding to the varied bacterial species of plant development selling micro organism (PGPB). using those bio-resources for the enhancement of crop productiveness is gaining around the world importance.
"Bacteria in Agrobiology: Plant Probiotics" discusses the present tendencies and destiny customers of valuable microorganisms performing as Probiotics. subject matters comprise the appliance for the aboveground health of crops, in mountain ecosystems, in tropical and Mediterranean forests, and in muga sericulture. extra facets are Arabidopsis as a version procedure for the variety and complexity of plant responses, plant parasitic nematodes, nitrogen fixation and phosphorus nutrition.

Seed bacterization with bacterial strains reduced pre-emergence damping off by 60–70% at two sites, with and without previous history of fungicide use, during winter season, and to a lesser extent (20–40%) in warmer wet season. In another experiment similar strains enhanced peroxidase and phenylalanine ammonia-lyase activities in chile and tomato (Sharma et al. 2007). , causal agents of damping-off in nurseries.
