One of the finest success stories of the post independent era of India is the green revolution in the 1960s, which transformed the India from a âbegging bowlâ to a âbreadbasketâ. This has been possible because of the use of chemical fertilizers and hybrid crops. However, in the long run, the use of chemical fertilizers had led to many serious problems, forcing scientists to explore other alternatives. One approach in this direction is the use of biofertilizers, better known as plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR). Species of root associated bacteria that colonize the rhizosphere of plants and stimulate plant growth by wide array of mechanisms are collectively known as PGPR. PGPR are universally known to enhance the adaptive potential of their hostâs plants.
