Description

PGPR amelioration in Sustainable Agriculture: Food security and Environmental management explores the growth- promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) are indigenous to soil and plant rhizosphere. These microorganisms have significant potential as important tools for sustainable agriculture. PGPR enhance the growth of root systems as well as the entire plant and often control certain plant pathogens.

PGPR amelioration is a fascinating subject, multidisciplinary in nature, and concerns scientists involved in plant heath and plant protection. The book emphasizes the current trends of, and probable future, PGPR developments. The chapters incorporate both theoretical and practical aspects, and may serve as base line information for future research . This book will be useful to students, teachers and researchers, both in universities and research institutes, especially working in areas of agricultural microbiology, plant pathology, and agronomy.

Key Features

  • Presents new concepts and current development in PGPR research and evaluates the implications for sustainable productivity
  • Describes the role of multi-omics approaches in establishing understanding of plant–microbe interactions that help plants optimize abiotic stresses
  • Incorporates both theoretical and practical aspects, and will serve as a base line for future research

Readership

Researchers in applied agricultural biotechnology, microbiology and soil science, and also for industry personnel in these areas
