Information concerning rhizobacteria antagonistic to Orobanche is very few. Zermane et al. identified some Pseudomonas and Ralstonia strains as natural antagonists of Orobanche. Mabrouk et al. showed that symbiosis with some non-pathogenic Rhizobium leguminosarum strains could induce both better development and lower susceptibility in pea to O. crenata. Some rhizobacteria referred to as PGPR (plant growth promoting rhizobacteria) or PHPR (plant health-promoting rhizobacteria) have the ability to improve plant growth, and/or root health.
