Abstract:

Environment pollution and the food shortage are the biggest problem faced by human beings. As the world population increase food requirement also increases. To fulfil the requirement of food the farmers are dependent on the chemical fertilizers which are harmful for environment. Thus the alternate to these problems are the use of biofertilizers. Both rhizobial and nonrhizobial endophytes are used as the biofertilizers as they have potential to increase the crop yield by producing plant growth promoting activity like Indole acetic acid (IAA), enzyme 1- aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate (ACC) deaminase, potassium solubilization, phosphate solubilisation, siderophore production and most importantly the nitrogen fixation. As these endophytes have potential to meet the food requirements and as well as do not pollute the environment thus can be called as ecofriendly bacteria.
