Biotic and Abiotic Stress Management by AM-Mediated PGPRs

Part of the Microorganisms for Sustainability book series (MICRO, volume 13)


Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi or AM fungi improve mineral and water nutrition of most of the land plants by developing a mutualistic symbiosis with the plants and thus increase the resistance of plants to biotic and abiotic stress. The intraradical proliferation of soilborne plant pathogens is greatly affected by root colonization by AM fungi. Specifically, the rhizobacteria associated with the AM extraradical network and the mycorrhizosphere are attributed to the biocontrol exerted by the AM fungi. Mycorrhizosphere is the soil zone under the influence of the root and AM association with some particular characteristics. Mycorrhizosphere provides a conducive environment for proliferation of antagonistic microorganisms that suppresses the growth of phytopathogens. Rhizobacteria associated with AM structures and mycorrhizosphere are found to have strong antagonistic potential against various soilborne phytopathogens. The phenomenon is attributed to the capacity of AM fungi to stimulate the establishment of antagonistic rhizobacteria in mycorrhizosphere ahead of the infection by root pathogens and triggering the localized and systemic defense mechanisms of the crop plants. Mechanisms of biocontrol, biocontrol of many diseases of various crop plants, and abiotic stress management under water and salt stress conditions of various crop plants by AM-mediated rhizobacteria have also been discussed in this chapter.
