Abstract: Research in the past few years has clearly shown that selected strains of the fungi and bacteria provide an eco-friendly well balanced plant health management system through systemic resistance to diseases of biotic and a biotic nature, increasing seed vigour, improving nitrogen fertilizer use efficiency, enhancement of root area. Bio-control association also stimulated plant defensive mechanisms induction of resistance metabolism similar to the hypersensitive response, systemic acquired resistance and induced systemic resistance in plants. There is a growing demand for biologically based soil borne pathogen management practices.
