<p>This book is developed in a lucid manner for readers to grasp information about the role and potential of microbes in sustainable agriculture & computational strategies associated with it. Present volume focuses on advancements of microbial research in increasing agricultural productivity and sustainability viz. plant growth promotion by rhizobacterial biostimulants, endophytes, actinobacteria, arbuscularmycorrhizal fungi and biocontrol.</p><p>Present day research is focused on role of&nbsp; soil microbe’s in agriculture, diazotropic & azotobacterial N2 fixation, PGPR etc. However, there is dearth of information on bioremediation of agrochemicals, biocontrol etc. This book is a compilation of research advances in both the aspect from eminent experts around the globe. In addition, in-silico mediated understandings of plant pathology, use of artificial neural networks in phytopathogen prediction, computational approaches in enhancing secondary metabolites production will be beneficial to professionals and academicians for sustainable agriculture.</p><p>This volume will be very helpful for the students, teachers, professionals, and scientists concerned in agricultural production, food security, soil microbiology, agricultural biotechnology, and computational techniques.&nbsp;</p>

This book, the second volume of Advances in Agricultural and Industrial Microbiology is the compilation of modern technologies with scientific advancement in promoting plant growth by rhizobacterial biostimulants, endophytic microbes, and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. The volume also highlights the critical roles of soil microbes in the biocontrol of plant pathogens/diseases, bioremediation of toxic agrochemicals, and nitrogen fixation. Agricultural sustainability and environmental management strongly depend on microbial communities. Management of soil fertility is the key aspect that is facilitated by soil microbes and their interactions.The book also has a section focuses on the in-silico approaches and techniques involved in agriculture which enhances the readers’ understandings of plant-pathogen interactions, prediction of pathogenicity, improving variety through CRISPER, and its role in the agroindustry. Additionally, the interventions of ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) have benefited agricultural stakeholders, i.e., farmers to policymakers, in predicting and combating them. The covered topics of the microbial domain and computational tools have high implications for the researchers, students, faculty, and scientists working on these areas.<p></p>
<p>Provides updates on soil microbiology, interaction, plant growth promotion</p><p>Takes computational approach in understanding host-pathogen interactions</p><p>Bridges the gap between agricultural sustainability and in-silico applications</p>
