About this item

Rhizosphere biology is approaching a century of investigations wherein growth-promoting rhizomicroorganisms (PGPR) have attracted special attention for their ability to enhance productivity, profitability and sustainability at a time when food security and rural livelihoods are a key priority. Bio-inputs -- either directly in the form of microbes or their by-products -- are gaining tremendous momentum and harnessing the potential of agriculturally important microorganisms could help in providing low-cost and environmentally safe technologies to farmers. Advances in PGPR Research explores these recent developments and includes coverage of:

* low input biofertilizers and biofungicides used for sustainable agriculture
* molecular techniques to enhance efficacy of microbial inputs
* intellectual property issues in PGPR research

Written by a team of experts, this book considers new concepts and global issues in bio-pesticide research and evaluates the implications for sustainable productivity. It is an invaluable resource for researchers in applied agricultural biotechnology, microbiology and soil science, and also for industry personnel in these areas.
