Particular bacterial strains in certain natural environments prevent infectious diseases of plant roots. How these bacteria achieve this protection from pathogenic fungi has been analysed in detail in biocontrol strains of fluorescent pseudomonads. During root colonization, these bacteria produce antifungal antibiotics, elicit induced systemic resistance in the host plant or interfere specifically with fungal pathogenicity factors. Before engaging in these activities, biocontrol bacteria go… Expand
Interactions between plants and beneficial Pseudomonas spp.: exploiting bacterial traits for crop protection
TLDR
The modes of action and traits of these beneficial Pseudomonas bacteria involved in disease suppression are reviewed and the complex regulation of biological control traits in relation to the functioning in the root environment is discussed. Expand
Threats and opportunities of plant pathogenic bacteria.
TLDR
This work reviews the pathogenic strategies and the (potential) uses of five very different (hemi)biotrophic plant pathogenic bacteria: Agrobacterium tumefaciens, A. rhizogenes, Rhodococcus fascians, scab-inducing Streptomyces spp. Expand
Biocontrol of Bacteria and Fungi
In this chapter the indirect promotion of plant growth is discussed in some detail (i.e., their use as biocontrol bacteria). That is, the many mechanisms that plant growth-promoting bacteria use toExpand
Biological Control of Phyto-pathogenic Bacteria
TLDR
The biological control can be successfully applied for crop protection against bacterial pathogens, where the biological control depended on the use of natural enemies viz. bacteria, fungi and viruses which they was common in any agricultural system. Expand
A bacterial endophyte exploits chemotropism of a fungal pathogen for plant colonization
TLDR
This work shows that the endophytic rhizobacterium Rahnella aquatilis locates hyphae of the root-infecting fungal pathogen Fusarium oxysporum through pH-mediated chemotaxis and uses them as highways to efficiently access and colonize plant roots. Expand
Pseudomonas fluorescens, a potential bacterial antagonist to control plant diseases
TLDR
The literature in this review helps in future research programmes that aim to promote P. fluorescens as a potential bio-pesticide for augmentative biological control of many diseases of agriculture and horticultural importance. Expand
Plant- and Microbe-Derived Compounds Affect the Expression of Genes Encoding Antifungal Compounds in a Pseudomonad with Biocontrol Activity
TLDR
Investigating the impacts of 63 different low-molecular-weight compounds on the in vitro expression of two antifungal biosynthetic genes by the plant-protecting rhizobacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens CHA0 suggests that biocontrol activity in plant-beneficial pseudomonads is modulated by plant-bacterium signaling. Expand
Exploiting the biocontrol potential of plant-associated pseudomonads – A step towards pesticide-free agriculture?
TLDR
Natural biological control of fungal and bacterial plant diseases by pseudomonads possibly supported by adapted management systems seems unlikely, however, selected Pseudomonas strains can be artificially introduced into the soil–plant ecosystem and have proven to be promising microbial antagonists.

Pseudomonadaceae: From Biocontrol to Plant Growth Promotion
Pseudomonas spp. are aerobic, Gram-negative bacteria that are ubiquitously found in soils. They are particularly well suited for plant root colonization and many strains display plantExpand
Dialogues of root-colonizing biocontrol pseudomonads
TLDR
Three major classes of antibiotic compounds reviewed here in detail (2,4-diacetylphloroglucinol, pyoluteorin and various phenazine compounds) are all produced under cell population density-dependent autoinduction control acting at transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels. Expand

TLDR
Root diseases caused by fungal pathogens can be suppressed by certain rhizobacteria that effectively colonize the roots and produce extracellular antifungal compounds, via both transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms. Expand

TLDR
Specific strains of nonpathogenic rhizobacteria can induce systemic resistance that is effective against a range of plant pathogens, and possibilities to improve effectiveness are discussed. Expand

TLDR
Biochemical and molecular biology studies carried out to explore the mechanisms involved in biological control revealed that Trichoderma is a rather specific mycoparasite, whereas chitinase is involved in the degradation of the host cell wall. Expand

TLDR
The frequent failure of the added micro-organisms to become established is not surprising because the biological associations and antagonisms within the ecosystem determine the composition of the microflora, the climax population being a reflexion of the physical and chemical characteristics of the habitat.

TLDR
