Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria for Sustainable Stress Management

Volume 2: Rhizobacteria in Biotic Stress Management

Editors: Sayyed, Riyaz Z. (Ed.)

Free Preview
  • Presents PGPR-mediated agriculture as the most widely accepted practice for a growing number of crops and managed ecosystems, and as a safe means of pest control
  • Explains biocontrol as an underestimated and therefore underused approach
  • Provides valuable insights into the new tools of recombinant DNA technology, mathematical modeling and computer technology in combination with more traditional approaches such as importation and release of natural enemies and improved germplasm, breeding and field testing

About this book

Attaining sustainable agricultural production while preserving environmental quality, agro-ecosystem functions and biodiversity represents a major challenge for current agricultural practices; further, the traditional use of chemical inputs (fertilizers, pesticides, nutrients etc.) poses serious threats to crop productivity, soil fertility and the nutritional value of farm produce. Given these risks, managing pests and diseases, maintaining agro-ecosystem health, and avoiding health issues for humans and animals have now become key priorities. The use of PGPR as biofertilizers, plant growth promoters, biopesticides, and soil and plant health managers has attracted considerable attention among researchers, agriculturists, farmers, policymakers and consumers alike.

Using PGPR as bioinoculants can help meet the expected demand for global agricultural productivity to feed the world’s booming population, which is predicted to reach roughly 9 billion by 2050. However, to provide effective bioinoculants, PGPR strains must be safe for the environment, offer considerable plant growth promotion and biocontrol potential, be compatible with useful soil rhizobacteria, and be able to withstand various biotic and abiotic stresses. Accordingly, the book also highlights the need for better strains of PGPR to complement increasing agro-productivity.
