They colonize plant root surfaces, exhibit antibiosis against plant root pathogens, synthesis of particular extracellular enzymes, hydrogen cyanide production and siderophore production (Tokala et al.
The beneficial functions of endophytic bacteria on plant growth promoting were reviewed and summarized, those functions can be a consequence of nitrogen fixation or occurring by other mechanisms such as the increase of phytohormones production, biocontrol of phytopathogen in the root zone through production of antimicrobial agents or siderophore and induction of systematic acquired host resistance (Rosenblueth and Martinez-Romero, 2006).
