The presence and survival of these beneficial rhizobacterial strains are, in contrast to the limited studies of rhizoremediation, presented in detail for processes such as biocontrol of soil borne plant diseases [12, 13], biofertilization, and phytostimulation [14].
Inoculation of microbes in the soil proved to be very successful for phytostimulation through improvement of soil structure, suppression of pathogens and degradation of toxic substances.
Bloemberg and Lugtenberg (2001) worked on plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR), used as inoculants for bio- fertilization, phytostimulation and bio-control.
