ABSTRACT
Minimizing or neutralizing the effects of environmental stresses on crop plants, protecting against pests and diseases, and at the same time ensuring optimal plant growth and development are currently the most important tasks facing growers and plant producers around the world. Nowadays, the goal is to limit the use of chemicals as much as possible to protect the environment and improve the quality of food. Interest in the use of beneficial rhizosphere microorganisms is becoming global as it can represent an environmentally friendly alternative to chemicalization in the era of threats to crop cultivation in the modern world (climate change, drought, salinity, introduction of plant pests).
