Effect of rhizobia inoculation on the development of soil-borne pathogens infecting common bean plants

Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) plants are one of the most important legumes for human consumption due to its nutritional value and the fact it is rich in protein, iron, carbohydrates, and bioactive compounds. Diseases in common bean plants caused by soil-borne pathogens cause important economic losses in the world. Rhizobia is a well-known bacterial group that directly and indirectly promotes plant growth. The steps for biological nitrogen fixation performed in leguminous plants are well-known, as it is also known that the symbiosis between rhizobia and leguminous presents inhibitory effects against fungal diseases in plants. Thus, this work gathers information about the indirect effect in plant growth caused by rhizobia inoculation in common bean plants against the fungal pathogens Rhizoctonia solani, Fusarium oxysporum, Fusarium solani and Macrophomina phaseolina. Literature shows that the inoculation of common bean plants with different rhizobia isolates reduces or blocks the symptoms of disease caused by these phytopathogenic fungi. It is already known that rhizobia produce extracellular enzymes that hamper fungal development and induce physiological and molecular changes in plants. However, the specific mechanisms that govern these interactions and inhibitions still need to be clarified.
