Biological Control of Fungal Disease by Rhizobacteria under Saline Soil Conditions

Dilfuza Egamberdieva, Abeer Hashem and Elsayed Fathi Abd-Allah

Crop productivity is limited in arid and semiarid regions of the world due to adverse conditions such as drought and salt stresses. Drought and salinity are regarded as the major factors affecting plant diseases. The soil-borne pathogens may respond differently to salinity level. Some studies provided evidence for increased disease at increasing salinity. Biological control agents based on plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) are able to control plant diseases, increase plant growth, and provide resistance to environmental stresses, including drought and salt. Abiotic and biotic factors, ...
