Plant-growth-promoting rhizobacteria

Authors: Antoun, Hani
Abstract: About 2–5% of rhizobacteria, when present in large number, are able to promote plant growth. Production of plant hormones and improving mineral nutrition are examples of direct promotion, while protecting plants against many diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, viruses, nematodes, or insects is indirect mechanism of growth promotion.
