Rhizospheric soils of crop plants have more flora and fauna due to availability of more organic compound, macronutrient and micronutrient. Rhizobacteria that exert beneficial effects on plant growth and development are referred to as Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR). Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria is a group of free living soil bacteria, which have ability to promote growth and yield of crop plant by direct and indirect mechanism. PGPR is generally two type, one is colonies inside plant cells that called intracellular PGPR (iPGPR) and other colonies out side plant in rhizosphere that called extracellular PGPR (ePGPR). This review generally focused on direct and indirect mechanism of PGPR. Direct mechanism of plant growth promotion may involve the synthesis of substances by the bacterium or facilitation of the uptake of nutrients from the environment. The indirect mechanism of plant growth occurs when PGPR lessen or prevent the deleterious effects of plant pathogens on plants by production of inhibitory substances or by increasing the natural resistance of the host. The search for PGPR and investigation of their mode of action are increasing at a rapid use as commercial biofertilizers. The mode of action and practical application of PGPR in crop production are the major focus of this review.

Dr. J.P. Verma: PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE PAPER TITILR"PLANT GROWTH PROMOTING RHIZOBACTERIA AS BIOFERTILIZER BY Vessey, 2003" directly from google site and read it for more knowledge about plant growth promoting rhizobacteria.
