In addition to enzyme production, P. fluorescens also induces the activity of laccase which is 28 A. Rai et al. involved in the pathogenicity of R. solani (Crowe and Olsson 2001). 1. In addition to the above discussed enzymes, fluorescent pseudomonads also produce ACC deaminase, which helps in plant growth promotion by inhibiting the biosynthesis of ethylene in roots of plant, resulting in increase in the lengthening of root and root hairs. The production of ACC deaminase has also been reported from wild-­type and genetically modified fluorescent pseudomonads (Ravindra Naik et al.

2016a, b). Beneficial effects of Pseudomonas in combination with other endophytic bacterial genera have been reported in soybean (Kuklinsky-Sobral et al. 2004), rice (Adhikari et al. 2001), oilseed rape, tomato (Nejad and Johnson 2000), and hybrid spruce (Chanway et al. 2000). 3 Mechanisms of Plant Growth Promotion PGPR enhance the plant growth and yield either directly or indirectly, without ­conferring pathogenicity (Hariprasad and Niranjana 2009).
