Molecular Aspects of Plant Beneficial Microbes in Agriculture

Vivek Sharma,

Molecular Aspects of Plant Beneficial Microbes in Agriculture
 
 

Molecular Aspects of Plant Beneficial Microbes in Agriculture explores their diverse interactions, including the pathogenic and symbiotic relationship which leads to either a decrease or increase in crop productivity. Focusing on these environmentally-friendly approaches, the book explores their potential in changing climatic conditions. It presents the exploration and regulation of beneficial microbes in offering sustainable and alternative solutions to the use of chemicals in agriculture. The beneficial microbes presented here are capable of contributing to nutrient balance, growth regulators, suppressing pathogens, orchestrating immune response and improving crop performance.

The book also offers insights into the advancements in DNA technology and bioinformatic approaches which have provided in-depth knowledge about the molecular arsenal involved in mineral uptake, nitrogen fixation, growth promotion and biocontrol attributes.

  • Covers the molecular attributes of biocontrol, PGPR and mycorrhizal associations involved in the three-way interaction between beneficial microbes-host-pathogen
  • Explores the role of technological interventions in exploring molecular mechanisms
  • Provides detailed and comprehensive insights about recent trends in the use of microbial genetic engineering for agricultural application
