About this book

Here, an extremely experienced team of authors from five different continents provides a timely review of progress in the use and exploitation of soil bacteria to improve crop and plant growth. They present novel ideas on how to grow better, more successful crops, in an environmentally sound way, making this invaluable reading for those working in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological and agricultural industries.

A useful introduction and companion for students and scientists studying the rhizosphere and its co-existing microorganisms. Since PCPR have a wide importance for plant growth their knowledge and management are crucial for optimal production of crop, food plants and even forest trees, it can be recommended for botanists, gardeners and foresters. (Biotechnology Journal, January 2009)
