All life forms rely on bacterial processes for their survival. Bacterial diversity is greater than the diversity of any other group of organisms. Bacteria are responsible for diverse metabolic functions that affect soil and plant health. Nutrient cycling, organic matter formation and decomposition, soil structure formation, and plant growth promotion are among the beneficial functions that bacteria perform. Deleterious effects include plant disease promotion. As bacterial functioning is… Expand
Microbial Inoculants in Sustainable Agricultural Productivity
TLDR
The vast functional and genetic diversity of microbial groups including bacteria, fungi and actinomycetes supports in all the above ways for soil health. Expand
Microbial and Genetic Diversity in Soil Environments
TLDR
The study of microbial diversity and how it relates to sustainable agriculture and environmental protection is an emerging focus area that has great potential and advances will continue to occur as new and reliable research methods are applied. Expand
Environmental factors shaping the diversity of bacterial communities that promote rice production
TLDR
During the heading stage of rice cropping, the rhizospheric microbial community is vital for the resulting rice yield, according to network analysis, which suggested that differences in productivity were caused by the interaction between the soil characteristics and the bacterial communities.

Rhizospheric Microbes for Sustainable Agriculture: An Overview
Agriculture is a complex network interaction among soil-plant-microbes. There is an urgent need for an ecologically compatible, environment-friendly technique in agriculture system that might be ableExpand
Do genetic modifications in crops affect soil fungi? a review
TLDR
Two of the most promising methods which are also readily usable in risk assessment of GM plants on soil fungi and that could help answer remaining key questions in the field are presented and discussed. Expand
Change in microbial communities, soil enzyme and metabolic activity in a Torreya grandis plantation in response to root rot disease
TLDR
Detailed bacterial and fungal community analysis was performed in healthy and root-rot diseased soils of Torreya grandis plantation forest in the subtropical region of China to find their interactions with the diseased plants and the microbial functioning. Expand
Actinomycetes – The microbial machinery for the organic-cycling, plant growth, and sustainable soil health
Abstract Soil actinomycetes are known as very versatile micro-machinery having tremendous potential to produce enzymes like cellulases, chitinases, proteases, and other agro-biochemicals, which areExpand
Microbial Inoculants and Their Impact on Soil Microbial Communities: A Review
TLDR
The extent of the inoculation impact on the subsequent crops in relation to the buffering capacity of the plant-soil-biota is still not well documented and should be the focus of future research. Expand
Diversity of Plant Associated Actinobacteria
TLDR
This chapter discusses diversity of ecologically important plant associated Actinobacteria (rhizosphere and phyllosphere colonizers, endophytes, symbionts and phytopathogens) and the methods that have facilitated advances in the understanding of their diversity. Expand
Influence of management practices on the diversity of pseudomonads in rhizosphere soil of wheat cropping system
TLDR
Effect of soil management practices, conventional (pf) and raised bed (rb), are compared for bacterial diversity in rhizosphere of wheat (Triticum aestivum) var. Expand

Characterization of Rhizobacteria Associated with Weed Seedlings
TLDR
It is suggested that for development of effective biological control agents for weed control, deleterious rhizobacteria must be screened directly on host seedlings and must possess several properties including high colonizing ability, specific phytotoxin production, and resistance or tolerance to antibiotics produced by other rhizosphere microorganisms.
