The soil quality that can promote and sustain plant development increasing efficiency while preserving long-term ecological quality are referred to as soil health. A significant population of creatures that encourage plant growth like the Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR), are the essential elements of healthy soil.In the rhizosphere soil; PGPR has a various category of ecologically advantageous functions. The ability of PGPR to clean up the environment is one of their other crucial functions. In this article, we examine the current study on the many processes of PGPR in sustaining healthy agricultural soil conditions, hence lowering (or eliminating) the dependency on harmful agrochemicals. To have more agroecological practices for sustainable agriculture, this review gives a thorough knowledge of the present PGPR core processes and uses as soil rhizoremediators, bio control agents, and plant growth boosters. Utilizing PGPR, which has the potential to function as an effective bioprotectant, is the only natural option to preserve the soil health. In final Analysis Sustainable agriculture stands to benefit greatly from research into manipulating rhizobacteria for enhanced plant development and soil health.
