Crops destruction by pests has a serious impact on agricultural practices for a long period of time. Its losses are creating a major threat to the food production with about 27 to 42% loss in global food production. Different approaches may be used to prevent, or to control plant diseases, pest population, and its damages. Previously growers often heavily use agro chemicals (pesticides) to control plant diseases and pest damage. Use of agrochemicals has raised a number of environmental issues causing health hazards. Besides contaminating the environment pesticide residues also affect useful organisms like soil micro flora, earth worms, bees, spiders, plants, furthermore; continuous use of chemical pesticides creates a selective pressure which helps in emerging of resistance pathogen generally it causes ecology disturbance. Therefore, use of plant growth promoting rhizobacterial pesticides to control plant diseases and insect pest is important to increase production and productivity of the crops and also enhance sustainable agriculture. In this regard, rhizobacterial pesticides offer better alternative to chemical pesticides and insecticides. Rhizobacterial pesticides and insecticides are not only helps to enhance food security through fighting against phytopathogens but also ensure the food safety and quality and they are environmental friendly. In this review, we have identified role of plant growth promoting rhizobacteria to control pathogens that affect plant production, productivity and critically analyzed the importance and mode of action.

Keywords: Plant growth promoting rizhobacteria, phytopathogen, fungicides, fumigants.
