Scholarcy highlights

  • The ever-growing human population globally has resulted in the quest for solutions to the problem of hunger by providing food security
  • Advances in modern molecular techniques have led to the evolution of omic technology using nucleic acid molecules to study plant-microorganism associations capable of stimulating plant growth, improve yield, and induce disease suppression
  • This review elucidates the activities of microbial communities, especially nitrogen-fixing rhizobacteria associated with plant roots, nitrogen fixation as a mechanism of promoting plant growth, their importance, and the challenges employing bioinoculants
  • O.O.B., acknowledges the National Research Foundation, South Africa for grants that supported research in her laboratory
