Abstract

Stenotrophomonas maltophilia and Stenotrophomonas pavanii, the two PGPRs are our point of attention which has been reviewed in the light of their contribution in sustainable agriculture. PGPRs are a group a root colonizing bacteria which enhance plant growth by direct as well as indirect mechanisms. They can produce phytohormones, solubilize phosphate, produce siderophore, antibiotics and give resistance against seed borne pathogens also. So, the PGPRs can stimulate plant growth without hampering plant’s health. In this article, the role of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia and Stenotrophomonas pavanii in sustainable agriculture is discussed.
