Beneficial microbes for sustainable sugarcane cultivation [Full subscriber]

Abstract Insect pests, diseases, weeds, and various abiotic stresses, such as drought, salinity, and waterlogging, are the major constraints for sugarcane cultivation. In recent years, eco-friendly cultivation approaches have gained importance worldwide. Several eco-friendly approaches are available for plant protection, weed and nutrient management, and management of abiotic stresses induced by climate change and other factors. The use of beneficial microbes is an important approach widely recommended for growing crops and is considered sustainable, readily available, and eco-friendly. Bacterial and fungal agents such as plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPRs), biological nitrogen-fixing microorganisms, phosphate-solubilizing bacteria, entomopathogens, and bio-control agents have been identified…
