Understanding the interactions between endophytic bacteria, rhizobia, free living root associated bacteria and their host plants under stressed conditions remains a significant challenge for proposing strategies to improve the efficacy of PGPR. In this study we analyzed the role of the endophytic bacterium Stenotrophomonas rhizophila in alleviating salinity stress in plants. The nodulation efficiency, plant growth, nitrogen and phosphorus uptake of soybean under hydroponic salt stress conditions were determined.
