Soil is dynamic living matrix and it is not only a critical resource in agricultural and food security but it is also towards maintenance of all life process. Pathogenic microorganisms along with chemical fertilizers affecting plant health and environment are a major and chronic threat to sustainable agriculture and ecosystem stability worldwide. The practice indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers in the agriculture to increase yields, kill pathogens, pests, and weeds, have a harmful impact on the ecosystem. Because of current public concerns about the side effects of agrochemicals, PGPR have gained a supreme attention in field of agriculture for plant growth promotion along with their environment friendly nature for sustainable agricultural practices. The use of plant growth promoting Rhizobacteria bioformulation in agriculture is a better alternative to resolve this ongoing problem. PGPR play an important role in direct or indirect way to increase in soil fertility, plant growth promotion, and suppression of phytopathogens for development of eco-friendly sustainable agriculture
